We’re Thankful For…

We're Thankful For YouEvery day is filled with reasons to give thanks! And the Thanksgiving holiday is the perfect time to share all the reasons we’re grateful. Here are things our team at United Way of Greater Cleveland and United Way Services of Geauga County are thankful for.

I’m thankful…

…for having a supportive family who I know is (and always will be) there for me! I am so lucky and very appreciative of everything they have ever done for me. I would not trade them for the world! – Monica Ghose, Campaign Associate 

…for family, friends and my health. I am also thankful to be able to serve my community through meaningful work. – Shenise Johnson-Thomas, Director, Engagement Center

…for my wife and two sons, strong wireless connections and the considerate, careful drivers on I-90 East and West. – Michael Miller, Director, News and Community Content

…for my family and friends’ love and support in my life. I also am thankful for the opportunity United Way of Greater Cleveland has given me to make a difference in my community. Taylor Holan, Campaign Associate

…to live in an awesome city where there is so much to do and everyone takes such pride in. Our city really looks beautiful in the spring, summer, fall and yes, even the winter!   – Rachel Durci, Campaign Associate

…for all of our United Way volunteers who deeply care about our community and work hard to improve it. – Joann Randall, Program Manager, Community Impact

…most for the opportunities and blessings I receive from those surrounding me each wonderful day. – Sarah-Ruth Hoskins, Health Program Community Resource Specialist

…for my supportive and wonderful family. I am thankful for the ability to be part of an organization making a difference in peoples’ lives. And lastly, I am thankful for the ability to live in a place where we are free to express our thoughts and freewill. – Julie Eyer, Administrative Assistant

…for my dogs, as they bring joy and laughter to my life every day. I’m grateful to work with an incredible team of people, all with the goal of helping those in need in our community. I’m thankful for living in Cleveland and excited it’s poised for a comeback! – Stephanie Gertner, Manager, Social Media

…for the opportunity to work alongside so many talented and devoted people in the United Way family who are committed to changing lives in our community. – Anne Feleppelle, Director, Public Policy and Government Affairs

… for the opportunity to work with talented and creative team members who also know how to have fun. When I consider how much time we spend at work, I think it’s just as important to laugh a little along the way as it is to make a deadline. I can sincerely say I love my job because of the people I work with, and I am very grateful for every member of the Community Engagement team. – Jenna Snyder, VP, Community Engagement 

And we’re thankful for you, our donors, volunteers and advocates who help us create a healthy community where every kid graduates high school and individuals and families are financially stable.
