Meet our 2016 Community Builders

September 8, 2016

Each year, a team of Community Builders (CBs) joins us for campaign season to help run rallies, coordinate volunteer projects and help spread the word about United Way. If your company runs a workplace campaign, you’ll likely see one of their smiling faces helping out at an event. Meet this year’s CB class below!
