“Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working for several United Way agencies including CHKD, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast and now Virginia Beach City Public Schools. This has allowed me to see firsthand the impact of the support of United Way of Southampton Roads, which naturally influenced my decision to be a donor for nearly 30 years. Daily I see the impact that United for Children has on the students and families of Virginia Beach Schools. This fund helps us to ensure that students have clothing, food, school supplies and hygiene items needed to prevent barriers to learning.”
