Mary O’Coin, Executive Director of the United Way of Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton (UWSSC), attended a recent Club meeting. She briefly reviewed the history of the local United Way, currently celebrating its 80th year. We learned about the wide variety of needed services provided in the Tri-Community area by the 17 non-profit partner agencies that UWSSC funds that cover 25 separate programs. Besides volunteering each year during the United Way ‘Day of Caring’, Sturbridge Rotary also gave Mary a donation to help support the much-needed work of UWSSC. Shown with Mary (center) is Rotarian Pauline White who is a volunteer with United Way and Rotary President David Zonia.
