Reid Wiggins

While living in Seattle in 2008, Reid first became involved with United Way of King County, using his background in banking to help low-income families file their taxes for free.

“That was a big community need that the United Way had taken on,” Reid said.

Looking to get more involved, Reid quickly joined the Emerging Leaders group at the local United Way in Seattle, which features community-minded millennials who want to make a difference. When Reid’s job relocated him and his family to Boise, he wanted to join another young leaders group with United Way.

“I have donated to and volunteered for United Way for 34 years because I have seen the life-long impact this work does,” David said. “I give because my gift makes a difference to an individual, which strengthens my community and changes the world.”

Ed Schultz

Ed loves to read to his grandchildren. Whether he’s visiting them or vice versa, he always looks forward to the excitement of his grandkids when they select a book for grandpa to read.

“I read them the words and we play games searching for items on each page,” Ed said.

When Ed found out only one in 300 children in low-income households have books, he was saddened.

“It really tugged on my grandpa heart,” he said. “Every kid needs books to call their own.
