“Being a loaned executive to United Way is an eye-opening experience. Although I knew that health and human service needs existed in Greater Nashua, I didn’t really understand the extent of situation until I visited some of the local agencies as a United Way Loaned Executive. I learned how United Way-funded programs at local agencies help address local needs. The Loaned Executive position for me is a very rewarding one because I know that the funds I help raise – especially those directed to the Community Impact Fund — go where the needs are greatest in our area.
Serving as a Loaned Executive also helps me hone my public speaking skills and my knowledge and understanding of the community. Most importantly, however, I know that my work is helping United Way improve people’s lives.”
