    Posted on 7/20/2015 by Ms. Natalie Janis of United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey

    Melinda K. Holman, Chairman of Holman Automotive, has been named chair of the regional Board of Directors for United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ).

    Holman has been an integral United Way volunteer for nearly 20 years, following in the footsteps of her grandfather and father, who supported United Way in its early years. During the 2012 merger of seven local United Ways to form UWGPSNJ, Holman served as the co-chair of the regional design team, having previously served as United Way of Camden County’s chair of the board, vice chair of the board and campaign cabinet chair.

  • United Way and Greater Philly Cares Merge to Bolster Volunteer Service in Merger

    Sunday, April 22, 2012 12:00 AM

    Posted on 4/18/2012 by Ms. Jill Michal of United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey

    This is a region committed to service. With more than 1 million volunteers serving 100 million hours each year, the dedication is clear. At United Way, we help people by giving, advocating and volunteering.
    In support of the volunteer part of that effort, we recently finalized a merger with Greater Philadelphia Cares, together becoming a stronger, more unified community organization. In Greater Philadelphia Cares, we saw a like-minded mission that could bolster our efforts with strong relationships and powerful programs.
    By coming together, we truly feel that we will be better able to serve the community, providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for individuals, community groups and corporations alike through the newly-formed Community Action Center. Our goal is to connect the “want” of volunteers to the needs of the community.
    United Way feels strongly that collaboration and synergies among non-profits are an important way that we can make an even stronger impact in the community and increase nonprofits’ effectiveness and efficiency; which in the end, means that our donors’ investments are used most effectively.
    During National Volunteer Week, learn more about United Way’s Community Action Center and find a volunteer opportunity right for you, your friends and your colleagues. Thank you for sharing your time. Visit www.LIVEUNITEDphilly.org.
