"It is very rare, if not impossible, for someone to make it through life without some kind of help. At some point in our lives, there have been or will be people to help us when needed. That belief drives me to want to help others, and United Way of Roanoke Valley is an amazing organization that provides me with the platform to do so."
- Chad Spangler, UWRV Board of Directors
