Every year, United Way of Bartholomew County gives out awards to people in our community who go above and beyond to assist United Way, our partner agencies and the community.
The award winners for 2019 can always be counted on to volunteer with us and truly know how to Live United.
Here is a look at the award winners and the impact that they have had in our community:
Rich and Alice Gold: Rich and Alice are strong supporters and volunteers who help many local nonprofits. Rich has been instrumental in helping shape United Way. He can be credited with helping to make United Way of Bartholomew County what it is today. We are grateful for the Gold family.
Dave Jamerson: Dave is a wonderful United Way advocate and is always willing to lend a hand in any area of our work. Dave has played a major role in evolving and propelling our impact work forward. He has also served as a chair for our impact committee and been on our board of directors. From campaign to impact, you can always count on Dave to make a difference.
Julie Del Genio: Julie has been a long-time friend and advocate of our organization. Julie has been critical to helping us develop our impact work. She has led our impact committee and served as a United Way board member. We can count on her to be there for United Way and our community, no matter what. We are glad to have her in our corner.
Roger Lang: As a loyal donor since 1979 and one of United Way’s longest serving volunteers, Roger has made a tremendous impact on our community by serving on the United Way Board of Directors and serving in nearly every committee. Today, he is a leader of the volunteer programs and works more hour than if he were a full-time employee.
Pam Donohoe-Duncan: Every time Pam volunteers she shows kindness, compassion, and patience to each client needing assistance. Not only is she a staple in our seasonal volunteer programs, Pam also dedicated countless hours in 2019 to our UWBC stakeholder analysis project. We are incredibly lucky to have her on our team.
