Erika AxaniWhy did you decide to get involved with United Way?  
I started with Envision Broward and was introduced to the other programs/colleagues after joining.

5 years

What do you do with United Way? 
I am a Reading Pal, I help with Mission United, and I am a part of Women United.

If you could encourage someone else to volunteer, what would you say to them?
I would explain to them all of ways, that maybe you and I wouldn’t think of immediately, that United Way helps our community and the incredible people I’ve met along the way.
