United Way of RI Presents Awards to Campaign Leaders of Local Companies
Thursday, June 02, 2016
United Way of Rhode Island presented awards to local campaign leaders for helping to strengthen communities.
“Every workplace campaign volunteer, and especially those who take on a leadership role, epitomizes one of our strongest beliefs—that we can accomplish much more by working together than any of us could do individually. It was a privilege to recognize the efforts of Campaign Leaders who went the extra mile to make their communities stronger and help change the lives of their neighbors,” said Anthony Maione, President and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island
In total, campaign leaders helped rase close to $13 million by inspiring more of their colleagues to support life changing programs, representing three quarters of UWRI's annual fundraising.
The first award, the "Change Makers," recognized the campaign leaders of the top fundraising companies in Rhode Island during the 2016-16 campaign.
The leaders that were honored include:
• Small Company: Kathy Nealon, Professional Planning Group (Westerly)
• Mid-Size Company: Gwenn Morrow, Dimeo Construction Company (Providence)
• Large Company: Wes Cotter, Gilbane, Inc. (Providence)
• Major Company: Kristen DiSanto, Kerry Holmes, Elizabeth Musgrave, Washington Trust (Westerly)
To honor the campaign leaders, United Way presented the "Live United is for Everyone" award to Trobel Bloe, Keara Fortune, Donna Long, Courtney Loscoe and Kevin Wilder of ATW Companies in Warwick.
Next, United Way presented the "Rising Star" award which is given to campaign leaders whose efforts led to the largest increase in the total amount raised over their previous year's campaign.
Those recognized were a team from Centerville Bank including Joy Gaffney, Kell lavoie, Jacob Leite, David Mruk, Corinn Pare, Donna Peterson, Stephanie Rodger, Rebecca Scott and James Sullivan.
Lastly, United Way presented Kristen Piccolo of Enterprise Holdings with the "Life of the Party" Award.
