It has been our pleasure to lead the Roland Story City drive for the 2013 United Way of Story County LIVE UNITED campaign. Our community has had a great showing of generosity in their time and treasures again this year. We want to thank everyone who participated in the campaign: major employers, small businesses, retirees and our public service employees. Also, a BIG thank you goes to the numerous volunteers it takes to carry out the activities of our local drive. This includes many people advocating within their businesses and, of course, our dedicated Roland Story City Campaign Cabinet. We were honored to lead such a devoted group of people:

Jenny Benedict, Winfield Solutions

Sue Ernest, Bethany Life Community

Brandon Geise, State Farm

David and Mary Loupee, Retired Community Members

Valaree Muhlenberg, Key Cooperative

Rick Schreier, Reliance State Bank

Joann Shelton, Retired Community Member

Veronica Vaughn, MBS

Brian Wilson, American Packaging

The commitment of many has made this year one for the record books. What matters even more is how this generosity will impact others. Thank you for your help in advancing the common good with United Way of Story County.
