Shiela Guenther is no stranger to the Estevan United Way. She has just been hired as their new Executive Director after serving as Treasurer, President and volunteer.
"I'm very excited to get started," she shared. "To start meeting with people and sharing all the good things the United Way does and working with the great volunteers."
"I think it's great because people can give to the United Way and know that it's helping a number of agencies in the area that help so many individuals and families. There's lots of great work being done by both the member agencies and the community impact projects that the United way has."
She knows that it's not going to be an easy job.
"The biggest challenges would probably be to raise our goal and continue to provide the funding that the member agencies need. We need to talk to the donors and see what we can do to make sure that they are helping as much as they can."
"I've always had a passion for the United Way and what it does in helping our community and helping people locally. I'm really glad to be involved again."
Guenther added that she encourages people to call her if you want to get involved and is looking forward to meeting with everyone to get started.
"I really want to work with the board and the volunteers and donors and the member agencies to do the most we can do in the area."
