UNITED WAY Giving spirit always boosts community

United Way of Northern Chautauqua County needs you to make a difference. Last week, the organization with so many ties to the non-profit community held its campaign kickoff celebration at Demetri’s in Dunkirk.

Besides talking about the great need there is in the community, it also saluted some worthy recipients. Wells Enterprises, which has been expanding and adding employees, was named rookie of the year due to the contributions and a $10,000 gift from the business. The Community Champion award was given to Dan Reininga of Lake Shore Savings Bank. The last award, the Community MVP award, given to someone who heavily impacted the United Way, was given to former United Way President Kyle Leikam.

“When we look at United Way and talk about the work it does, that’s such a huge piece of it,” said United Way of Northern Chautauqua County Executive Director Adam Dolce. “We’re going out and trying to network and connect with businesses, decision makers and people who are making a difference in our community every day to get them back into the people and organizations who are making really important changes. That’s what I see for the United Way and we are working toward it every single day.”

Dolce, who has been a shining star in his leadership role, is in tune with bettering this region. Giving to the United Way is your way of helping.
