Kick-off breakfast is Sept. 11 in Oswego
Melanie Trexler, executive director, United Way of Greater Oswego County, has announced that Rob Rolfe of Harmony Financial Services will serve as chairperson for the United Way’s Campaign Cabinet.
A longtime supporter of United Way, Rolfe has served the agency in a number of capacities including 13 years as an employee campaign coordinator, a member of the community investment committee for nine years and a member of the Campaign Cabinet for the past five years.
Having previously served as co-chairperson for United Way’s Annual Campaign, Rolfe is excited to take the reins for the 2013 campaign.
“I am a strong believer in the power of the United Way,” Rolf said. “From the more than 400,000 meals served by United Way member agency soup kitchens, nutrition sites and food pantries, to the countless number of youth, seniors and families that receive assistance when they need it the most, programs supported by United Way continue to make a difference by positively impacting the quality of life in Oswego County.
“I gladly lend my support to United Way because the member agency programs it supports serve our neighbors, family and friends right here in Oswego County,” said Rolfe.
“Rob and everyone in our Campaign Cabinet are excited about this year’s campaign,” Trexler said.
“They have established a precise plan of action that will allow us to achieve our campaign goals and through our member agencies, serve as many families and individuals in Oswego County as possible,” said Trexler.
Rolfe sees this year’s campaign as a challenge that members of the Campaign Cabinet and the volunteers that serve as employee campaign coordinators are ready to take on.
“The economy continues to be an issue for many families,” Rolfe said. “There is a greater need for services. Working together we can insure that those services continue to meet the needs of those less fortunate. It’s our community … and it’s personal!”
The United Way’s Annual Campaign, which serves as the organization’s primary fundraiser, will officially get underway with a kick-off breakfast 8 to 9 a.m. Sept. 11 at American Foundry, Route 104 East (behind the Fajita Grill) in Oswego.
“We invite community members to join us for the United Way Campaign Kick-Off Breakfast and learn more about the United Way and how their donations to the campaign make a difference in the quality of life in Oswego County,” added Trexler.
