“For me, being a member of United Way of Olmsted County's Tocqueville Society means the attitude of caring, sharing and giving. This is a legacy from my parents. They were willing to offer help to those in need, support the church, schools, and community projects. When I got my first job there were various options for giving. I liked the concept of combining many agencies in one organization and made my first pledge to United Way. I also served on the board of Olmsted County United Way at one time, and I am still committed."
