United Way is excited to announce its three campaign co-chairs for the 2015 campaign: Jarrod Tudor, Interim Dean and Chief Administrative Officer of Kent State University at Geauga; Therese Glorioso, President of Home Instead Senior Care; and Brian Muoio, Branch Manager of Huntington National Bank in Burton.
The campaign is already beginning with the help of these three dynamic individuals leading the charge. Each chair brings a unique skill set to help United Way raise dollars to support the Geauga community. Brian Muoio believes it is important to help others because he feels you will never know when you may be the person in need. Brian is not new to philanthropy; he has taken part in other fundraising efforts that enabled 28 high school students to raise over $45,000 to help those affected with breast cancer. Brian is interested in developing young people so they understand the value of leadership and philanthropic causes.
Therese Glorioso spent 10 years directly caring for seniors when she began Home Instead Senior Care in Geauga, Lake and Portage Counties, which provides assistance to seniors with private duty care at home. Therese has a sincere love for seniors and knows the importance of people aging independently in their own homes. A current Board Member with United Way, Therese has won numerous philanthropic and business awards throughout her career.
Another new Board member, Jarrod Tudor, is a relative newcomer to the area. Jarrod taught courses at Kent State for 19 years and holds a number of graduate degrees in law, higher education, business, and public administration. Jarrod is very interested in advocating for high quality education at all levels in Geauga County.
“I look forward to working with these amazing individuals who are so successful in their own businesses but are willing to share their precious time to support a successful campaign. I know that each of these co-chairs truly has a passion for helping those in need. Together, we will be able to expand opportunities for everyone to succeed.” says Kathleen Munch, Resource Development and Communications Manager at United Way.
Kimm Leininger, executive director, states, “United Way has big plans for the community. We have been working together with local partners, including businesses, community leaders, agencies and residents, to create strategies so that our donor dollars make the biggest impact. We want to make sure that every Geauga County resident has the same opportunity for a quality education, financial stability, and good health.”
