Indiana County’s United Way has welcomed five new board members, as the agency begins preparations for this year’s campaign.
The new board members are Ann Marie Everett, Michelle Fryling, Jenn Myers, Kevin Sergent and Mike Tshudy.
The 2013 campaign will begin with the annual kickoff event on September 26th, and the organization has already announced one of its first fundraisers, the "September 2013 30-Day Giveaway", which offers the chance to win up to $1,000 throughout the month. Tickets may be obtained from any board member for ten dollars or by calling the United Way office, and will also be sold at the Indiana County Fair. Prizes sponsored by more than thirty individuals and businesses will be awarded every day in September, with the $1,000 grand prize co-sponsored by First Commonwealth Bank, AFS Financial Services, Scerbo’s Pharmacy, and Indiana Audiology. Project design and printing sponsors are S&T Bank, Park Press and Diamond Drug.
The board also has begun organizing the campaign’s workplace giving programs
Programs of the United Way of Indiana County and its 15 partner agencies impact the lives of about half of the people in Indiana County.
