MLGW’s fundraising campaign for United Way used a theme of “Motivating. Loving. Giving. Working.” The four-word theme certainly describes the support our community receives from MLGW employees, as seen by this year’s total of $655,150 for United Way.

MLGW employees surpassed their goal by more than $10,000 this year – and once again, all funds were donated by employees who work at the utility.

MLGW consistently ranks in the top levels of area giving even though it uses no corporation funds in the fundraising drive.

Dan Hope, Communications Specialist at MLGW observed that MLGW employees respond to the call of helping people who are less fortunate or are receiving assistance from United Way’s network of nonprofit agencies.

This year’s MLGW United Way Steering Committee included Kevin Watkins, Work Mgmt. Proc. Align.; Committee Co-Chair Ashley Campbell, Water Engrng.; Lonny Daugherty, Paint Shop; Colleen Devine, Water Engrng.; Juanita Ford-Boothe, Environ. Engrng.; Alonzo Logan, Comm.
