United Way welcomed familiar faces to the office for a reminder of the power of loyal volunteerism at the Loaned Executive Alumni Association (LEAA) luncheon late last week.

George Edwards, a United Way volunteer since 1994, is leader of the LEAA. Edwards talked about the the importance of staying involved to help our community become stronger. His audience of volunteers have proven track records of helping United Way in the past as Loaned Executives and Sponsored Representatives.

Loaned Executives and Sponsored Representatives are important local volunteers who have gone through extensive training at United Way to help conduct awareness and fundraising campaigns at organizations across the area. Without their help, United Way could not raise the significant amount of funds used to address community issues and our region’s top priorities.

The LEAA’s mission is to develop and continue the involvement of past and future Loaned Executives in supporting the mission of United Way.  LEAA members are particularly valuable in United Way’s work because of their past training, practical knowledge thanks to hands-on past experiences, and their connections in the community.
