Top 4 Member Moments

  • Ben Danielson: He’s lovingly called “Dr. Ben” because he’s such a familiar presence in our work, especially in speaking about Reconnecting Youth at our 2015 Breakfast and chairing our Reconnecting Youth Advisory Council. This guy also cares about our next generation of leaders.
  • Karen Marcotte-Solimano: We’re not supposed to call her KMS in public, but she won’t mind. Karen was our 2015-2016 board chair and is our Brand Enhancement Committee chair who’s made our work her work, especially around making homelessness rare, brief and one-time. Karen’s passion is contagious and has reached everyone at United Way.
  • Angela Stowell: Hello, energetic go-getter! Angela has been a key player in our All-Star Softball Classic, on our Brand Enhancement Committee and with Emerging Leaders. She and her restaurateur husband Ethan Stowell have been huge supporters of our hunger work, including leading our Celebrity Chef Intergalactic Smackdown in July.
  • Blair Taylor: He moved to D.C…but did he? He’s still a huge United Way of King County fan, and we’re so glad. A keynote speaker at our recent Breakfast, Blair’s now CEO of My Brother’s Keeper Alliance in D.C., an Obama Administration-appointed position to support opportunity youth. All proof of his deep care for reconnecting youth to their future.

Cheers and thanks to all of our board members and volunteers who go all in for our community.
