In 50th year of United Way program, volunteers "loan" their time

July 24, 2018 | Source:

Volunteers for Lubbock Area United Way’s Loaned Executive Program play a key role in United Way’s Annual Campaign. These individuals “loaned” by their employer serve as a primary contact and resource for companies conducting employee workplace campaigns. 2018 celebrates the 50th year of the program.

This year, 53 local companies have loaned employees to United Way. These volunteers have already been instrumental in leading United Way’s Day of Caring, at which more than 120 children went home with new books. In addition, they have engaged in learning and training opportunities to learn about United Way, its Community Partners, and the annual campaign. Loaned Executives are currently delivering campaign supplies, educating employees, and making themselves available to help ensure that each company has all the resources necessary to run a successful workplace campaign.


The 2018 Loaned Executive program is chaired by Kelsey Tubb of City Bank and is comprised of 61 volunteers, one of the largest classes in the history of the program. Matt Ernst of Fox34/Ramar Communications is vice chair.

Lynn Owens, Vice President Annual Campaign, may be contacted at 747-2711 or for more information on running a United Way workplace campaign.
