A Message from the 2017 Campaign Chair
Jim Singleton, The Glatfelter Agency / Glatfelter Insurance Group
The Annual Campaign of the United Way of York County is one of the most significant forces to improve the education, income & health of our community. Our United Way is empowered by the strength of our volunteers, the generosity of our supporters and the efforts of our Partner Agencies. Thank you for your service to our community through the United Way of York County.
I’ve experienced the impact of our United Way both first hand and through the impact of our partner agencies. As a child growing up in York County I took swimming lessons at the YMCA of York. Later, while attending York College, I volunteered at a United Way Day of Action. As my career grew, so did my involvement with the United Way of York County.
Upon starting my career with The Glatfelter Agency, A Division of Glatfelter Insurance Group, I began to support the United Way during the annual campaign. As the years went by I continued to build on my prior years’ financial support until I became a Leadership Giver in 2012; and became an inaugural member of the United Way’s Emerging Leaders Society. As my interest in serving the York County community continued, I became involved in Leadership York and eventually came to serve on the Board of Directors of the YMCA of York and the American Red Cross of South Central Pennsylvania.
As the years progressed, I was approached by the United Way and asked to assist with the Annual Campaign. After experiencing the impact that the United Way and its Partner Agencies had on me and our community, I couldn’t say no. This year, I’m proud to serve as the Campaign Chair of the Annual Campaign. Our United Way has depended on our volunteers, supporters and Partner Agencies long before my Chairmanship and it will continue to do so long after. Your opportunity, and my ask this year, is to help us build the relationships, the community, and the bridges that will support us in 2017 and beyond.
