In Times of Trouble, UWNA is There
What do W. L. Gore & Associates, Wells Fargo, Northern Arizona University, Kinney Construction, Nestle Purina, the City of Flagstaff and Navajo County all have in common?
They are a handful of the companies and organizations that have lent their best and brightest to serve on the United Way of Northern Arizona Board of Directors.
This year we are proud to say that we have 100% participation by our 22-member board in this year’s Annual Campaign.
For Board member Erika Harding, part of the Commercial Banking team at Wells Fargo, the decision to support UWNA has to do with a commitment to “Living United.”
“I support United Way because time and time again they have proven we are stronger together in times of crisis,” she says in the video above.
This year, the crisis that’s been on all of our minds is coronavirus. In the very first days of the shutdown, UWNA created a special fund to focus on getting needed resources to organizations on the front line of the crisis. In the past eight months, the COVID-19 Fund has disbursed $445,711 to 21 nonprofits and governmental groups providing basic needs.
Brett Larson, a program manager at W.L. Gore who also serves on the Board, notes that the COVID-19 Fund is just the most recent example of how United Way is there for our friends and neighbors in times of trouble.
“The United Way has served our community for many years, distributing donations where they can have the biggest impact in our local communities,” he says in the video below.
The leadership of our Board of Directors is vital to UWNA’s work, whether they are guiding us as we develop new initiatives for early education or reviewing and approving contributions to partners in the community.
