In recognition of National Volunteer Week, United Way is excited to celebrate Cammie Cummings, a local go-getter and volunteer champion who makes an impact in everything she does.
Cammie has volunteered with United Way for 4 years and is currently chairing United Way’s Young Leaders (YL) Affinity Group.
Young Leader members are emerging community leaders who are focused on empowering and inspiring young professionals to lead community-wide change that support United Way’s efforts to end local poverty by helping children and youth prepare for success in college, work, and life.
“Connecting and volunteering with YL was an easy decision as it directly aligns with being actively involved in creating family friendly activities and soliciting the partnership of other young professionals to support the mission of ending local poverty. It is all about making an impact”, said Cammie.
Cammie’s passion for volunteering and her gift to motivate others to join the movement, especially young professionals, has greatly supported United Way’s efforts to help the local community.
“It is my hope that we see United Way as a collective opportunity to push generations forward. Not only does it serve as a powerful resource to our community, but that through every dollar and donation given, a life is being impacted. I hope that we can see the mission to end local poverty as a reality one day, but it will take a collective belief, service, and willingness to create bold change!”
