Posing with Purpose

For those of you who follow the show Organization Motivation!, you know I’m a huge proponent of giving back to our local community. I’ve been involved with various organizations over the years. United Way is just one example. Years ago I was on the board of directors and did a lot of work on their annual fundraising campaign. I’ve continued my relationship with United Way and have recently become more involved with their marketing and community engagement committee. (Adam, my Director of Marketing & Communications just happens to be the lead United Way staff person on the committee, but that’s not the ONLY reason I volunteer.)

Adam asked me to be a part of the UW’s LIVE UNITED photo shoot. It was an absolute ball. Of course, there’s always fun to be had when Adam and I get together for an event. (I always joke with the Executive Director of United Way Brenda Episcopo saying that I am going to steal Adam from them to work for me full time some day… as soon as Hollywood calls! HA!)

In all seriousness, United Way is a wonderful organization that helps so many people in Herkimer and Oneida Counties. They truly make a huge difference by providing our community with a safety net of services and creating change in the areas of health, education, and income. (I promise, Adam didn’t make me say that… but I’m sure he’s happy I did!)

If you ever want to get involved in our community feel free to give them a call or check them out online at www.unitedwaygu.org. (If you talk to Adam, tell him Deb sent you!)
