Paula Terry is the Chair of our Women United Executive Committee. A long-time Wells Fargo employee, avid Idaho nature lover, grandmother, and reader, we appreciate Paula's service to United Way of Treasure Valley!
1. Tell us about your history with United Way. What motivated you to want to get involved with United Way of Treasure Valley?
For years I have donated through the United Way Campaign at work but I did not know how much United Way did for our community until I joined Women United. At my first Women United event, I heard about...

United Way of Treasure Valley wouldn't exist without the power and support of our community. From our partners and donors whose generous gifts fund our work in the areas of health, education, and financial stability, to our volunteers who help to carry out our impact work from start to finish.
When Sue Hall called us back in early 2019, we had no idea who was about to walk in to our lives. A fervent lifetime supporter of United Way, Sue wanted to stay involved with the organization after recently moving from Georgia to Idaho. We had a...

Another amazing lady joins us today on our Campaign Cabinet. Welcome, Maureen Hamilton!
1. Talk to us about being on the Campaign Cabinet. What motivated you to want to get involved?
I’ve witnessed the power of individuals giving back to their communities through the gifts of time, their talents and/or financial contributions. I know where people choose to give is deeply personal so if I can help promote the mission of the United Way – to improve the health, education and financial stability of those in our community – well, then that’s a...

Big welcome to another incredible addition to our Campaign Cabinet, Alicia Adams!
Talk to us about being on the Campaign Cabinet. What motivated you to want to get involved?
I decided to accept the invitation to join the Campaign Cabinet despite my already overloaded schedule for two reasons. First, when life is crazy busy, it's easy to become self-focused. Most of what we do is related to our own needs (our work, our family, etc.), so getting involved in something like United Way forces me to look up and out, which is good for the soul....

One of the funniest things to us here at United Way of Treasure Valley are some of the men that are involved in our organization. We have this amazing team of big, strong, burly men who are constantly helping us with the labor part of this work; whether it's hauling boxes, moving furniture, unboxing pallets, etc. But in spite of some of these guys' big, strong exteriors, they are the nicest bunch of big-hearted softies we have ever met. Mark Zaleski is no exception. Because of Mark and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, UWTV...

Last year, we introduced you to our resurrected Campaign Cabinet! Wow, did we have a blast with this group. Such caring and motivated individuals with hearts of gold.
This year, we've said goodbye to a few old members and HELLO to some new ones! Today, we'd like to introduce you to Joe Bedard from Simplot Foods!
Tell us about being on the Campaign Cabinet. What motivated you to want to get involved?
I've been co-chair for Simplot's annual United Way Campaign for two years and continue to build a community culture within our...
