Aly Giesler

“I support United Way because I passionately believe that community change takes a collaborative effort. Young Leaders gave me an opportunity to take my support a step further and to network with like-minded young professionals."

Andrea Allison

"It was really appealing to me to see that United Way was directly involved in our local communities and that I could too be involved in that. I could see my time and my dollars go to impacting the community that I live in, that my family lives in, and that my kids are growing up in."
