Lara Duran, Outreach Coordinator for Salina Area Technical College, has volunteered as an advocate for the 2013 Salina Area United Way Workplace Campaign, and currently serves on the Resource Development Committee
"In my first year volunteering to help with the Workplace Campaign, I found the experience to be a unique way to expand my own professional network, give back to my community, and to support what I am fortunate to do for a living (outreach to families and students in need of extra support).
Thank you for the opportunity to serve!"
Daniel Craig, Saline County Tobacco Use Prevention Program Coordinator, currently volunteers as a member of Salina Area United Way's Measurement Committee and United Priority Cabinet.
“When you volunteer for your community you always receive far more than you can ever give. You'll learn, develop friendships, and be amazed at how many passionate and dedicated people are in the community.”
