We asked the new CVC Co-Chairs to tell us a little bit about themselves.

    Your name and title- Lynn Kieley  AVP/Branch Manager Newtown Savings Bank White Hills office

Why did you want to get involved with the CVC: My first involvement with Valley United Way was approximately 7  years ago attending a Back to School Program in Ansonia and I was just so overwhelmed with the children and how happy they looked when they received there clothing.  

What are your goals for the CVC: My goal is to focus on our hallmark events and just to help make them bigger and better, especially our Back to School program due to the overwhelming need with  the valley children.

Accomplishments- I think just being a part of all the events over the last 5 years. I was in awe when I participated in Harvest House II for the first time and being able to see first hand how all the corporations and the valley community comes together to help support all the non profit agencies in the valley.

  • Assist Pat to lead projects and programs that build on community assets, meet community needs, and provide volunteers with a positive experience so that they continue their journey of service.

  • Serve as a resource for companies initiating or expanding their volunteer programs and encouraging new volunteerism in the Valley corporate communities.

  • Advance our current invaluable CVC members' capacity to support their own volunteer programs through best practice sharing.
