United Way surpasses $650K goal

$664,534 raised during 2013 campaign

(Continued)

Anspach helped with the campaign for the first time this year. The experience has been a good one for Anspach, she said.

“Each employee campaign we went to inspired, humbled and honored us,” Anspach said. “Without [employee campaigns] we couldn’t do our job.”

During the celebration, Joyce Ameen was named volunteer of the year. Steinberger Construction was named outstanding pacesetter and a special event award went to Ivy Tech Community College.

Every year a lot of work goes into each United Way of Cass County campaign.

Josh Hopper was announced as the 2014 campaign chair at the meeting.

“I’m excited to collaborate and make a difference in the community,” Hopper said.

Hopper, who has been helping out at the United Way of Cass County in some way since 2008, has been working since October to learn what he will be doing as campaign chair.

Hopper will be in charge of getting a cabinet together, which has different divisions, chairs and a team of people. From there they will meet with industry, labor and business leaders to ask what they see in the business that may affect donations.

From there, a goal for the coming year’s campaign will be decided.

“I’m excited about the impact we can bring,” Hopper said.
