United Way of Southern Chautauqua County is thrilled to announce
Kurt Eimiller as the 2018 Campaign Chair
“Kurt brings a lot of passion and commitment to our community,” said United Way Executive Director Amy Rohler, “and we’re excited that he’s willing to invest that in United Way community partners and programs.
He comes highly recommended by a countless number of United Way volunteers and donors.”
A local graduate of Jamestown High School and Allegheny College, Kurt’s dedication to volunteerism in the community has been recognized as a coach for both the Jamestown Area Midget Football League and Jamestown Cal Ripkin Baseball.
He has also served on the New York State Advisory Board for Northwest Savings Bank, the Memorial Trust Board for Zion Covenant Church, and the Jamestown Area Midget Football Board.
“I am honored to chair this year’s campaign,” states Eimiller, “and proud to volunteer for an organization that takes an outcome focused approach to its programs.” Eimiller also added that he appreciated chairing the campaign during a year when so much economic development and community revitalization was already happening in downtown Jamestown and its neighborhoods.
“I really see United Way as an economic partner in investing in our community and demonstrating true impact. We fight to mobilize the community to help people improve their lives. United, we do make a difference.”
Kurt is currently the President of Slone-Melhuish Insurance, and along with his wife Kym are strong supporters of the United Way of Southern Chautauqua County, and Leadership Circle donors for several years.
They both grew up in the area, and chose to raise their four sons here—Alexander, Max, Jack and Sam.
United Way of Southern Chautauqua County officially kicks off the 2018 Campaign later this fall.
The effort will seek to raise more than $1.3 million to invest in 39 programs that align with four priorities: ensuring that families are self-sufficient, everyone is ready to work, young people succeed in school, and those in need can find help.
One hundred percent of all donations remain in Chautauqua County.
