Campaign Chairman's Message

Hello Fellow Corporate Leaders!Mark Kempic

As President & COO of Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania and Maryland, I am honored to serve as the 2020-2021 Campaign Chair of the United Way of Washington County. Columbia Gas is proud of its partnership with the United Way of Washington County to support our community by conducting an annual Workplace Giving Campaign. Our organization understands that as a community, we are all in it together. Only with the support of our Washington County corporate neighbors would funding exist for a variety of local essential programs.

Perhaps you are familiar with the fact that today thirty-six local human service programs are funded through the United Way of Washington County’s Community Impact Fund. Some of the ways that these programs impact our community are by:

  • helping community members in need, including funding for local shelters for families
  • connecting folks who are employed with available resources to learn how to budget and to take the steps necessary to obtain homeownership
  • sharing with teens about safe dating and dealing with cyber-bullying
  • learning new job skills for eager individuals reentering the workforce, and
  • providing a unique summer camp experience for children with disabilities.

The United Way of Washington County has continuously served our community throughout its 95-year history with its vital presence. It is a role that it graciously embraces as it is guided by its mission: to unite people, resources, and organizations to improve lives in Washington County.

Please consider joining your fellow local corporate organizations, like Columbia Gas, to become a United Way Workplace Giving Campaign Partner or explore other ways to lend your support. We cannot do it alone. With a collective corporate support, a strong Washington County community will benefit all.

I invite your organization to learn more about joining the efforts to make a difference in our community. Please take a minute to look over the funded programs and then please consider welcoming P. Ann Hrabik, Executive Director of the United Way of Washington County, to share on how your organization can get involved.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
