Monadnock United Way is happy to announce its 2018 class of Loaned Employees (LE).
Loaned Employees are valuable volunteers who are at the heart of local workplace campaigns, serving as MUW’s key fundraisers between August and December. They do everything from providing basic logistical support to companies to helping some companies run their inhouse campaigns.
This year’s Loaned Employees are: Nancy Glasheen, Katelyn Kumorek and Tracey Tryba from C&S Wholesale Grocers/ES3; Corinne Marcou from the City of Keene, Cindy Chandler from Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services; Christina Ellis from Markem-Imaje; Lindsey Swett from Savings Bank of Walpole; and Michael Haynes from The Timken Company.
LEs are “loaned” to MUW from their employers. They give MUW 4-8 hours of their time each week throughout the campaign, on top of about 23 hours of training in August.
MUW thanks each one of our 2018 LEs and their employers! Read more about each of them below.
Nancy started her career at C&S in 2007 and currently serves as the HR compliance manager. She has lived in Keene for 23 years and is the proud mom of two children, both of whom graduated from the Keene Public School system.
Nancy is committed to the community and wants to ensure that other families have access to services and the best possible care and education. Nancy is a recent graduate of Leadership Monadnock, and says she gained additional insights to the offerings Keene has for business and families. “The experience has provided me with a stronger understanding of what a wonderful community this is,” she said.
Katelyn is a business analyst on the human resources team at C&S in Keene. She’s a native of Keene and says she could never picture herself living anywhere else. Katelyn says she loves living walking distance to downtown Keene. She is a 2017-18 graduate of Leadership Monadnock. On becoming an LE for Monadnock United Way, Katelyn said, “Keene has definitely evolved over the years and I am excited to be a part of the continual development!”
Tracey has been the senior manager of Accounts Receivables on the C&S team in Keene for two years. She has lived in Richmond for the past 15 years. Tracey has always been active in the Monadnock community, both professionally and personally. She looks forward to continuing to serve the community as an LE for the Monadnock United Way. She believes in strengthening our local community to create positive, lasting change.
Corinne is the administrative assistant/CRS coordinator for the newly formed Community Development Department at the City of Keene. She has been working at the City for about 10 years. Corrine is a single mom of two adult children. She lives in Fitzwilliam, but is originally from Berlin, NH. “My hope is to see a huge impact to our community from my small piece of the puzzle,” she said. Corinne said she received some help from social services agencies when her children were young, during a time when she was struggling. “It’s my hope that the work we’ll be doing as LE’s will assist as many community members as possible,” she said. Corinne is also currently studying business at Franklin Pierce University, and is a Co-Lead Organizer for a TEDx event scheduled for this fall.
Cindy has been a registered nurse for 35 years. She has worked for the last year and a half as a nurse liaison for Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services. Cindy lived outside the Monadnock region for 16 years. She was an LE last year, and said it was a good way to get to know more about the Monadnock region, MUW and its programs. She said she and her husband, along with their Brittany dogs, are happy to be back in New Hampshire.
Christina is a production assembler at Markem-Imaje, where she has worked for just over four months. She was born and raised in the Monadnock region, and doesn’t have plans to leave anytime soon. Christina says she chose to volunteer as a Loaned Employee because she has always felt that she should give back to her community in a big way. “My time is worth more than my dollar,” she said. Christina also feels that this will be a great opportunity to gain the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace.
Lindsey works at Savings Bank of Walpole, where she is a universal banker. She has been employed at Savings Bank of Walpole on and off for 14 years. Lindsey was born and raised here in Keene. She was chosen by the bank to be an LE. “Since being chosen I have learned a lot more about what the Monadnock United Way does,” she said.
Michael is a quality engineer at The Timken Company, where he has worked for two and a half years. Michael has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He lives Temple. “I chose to become a Loaned Employee because I was interested in finding out more about the United Way and I am new to the community and wanted to give back.”
