United Way honors volunteers for efforts to help neighbors

The United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Eastern Area, recently honored a number of individuals for their volunteering spirit at an annual breakfast banquet. The event noted the efforts of several people who have given a lot of their time and energy to helping people.

“I’m pleased to have all of the people who are here today,” said action council chair Gibbs McVeigh. “We’re more pleased because we have some people who will get rewards today for the very good work they’ve done, and that’s the real reason for this meeting.”

Honored were volunteers in four categories. The Midland Company was chosen for the campaign leadership award, based on their work in helping the United Way to raise money to support social service efforts throughout the region.
