United Way ready for campaign kickoff

The Greater Ennis United Way is gearing up for its 2007-2008 campaign season, setting a projected goal of $300,000.
But it’s making sure to do it by the book.
Stacie Hollingsworth, Greater Ennis United Way CEO, said the local charitable organization has successfully completed and submitted all 2007 membership mandates required to retain its status.
Hollingsworth said mandates included membership certifications, investments and a Database 2 Survey of Resources Generated. The latter is “a survey reflecting the full extent of a community’s resource development efforts during the year,” she clarified.
“Membership standards must be certified annually in order for us to remain a member of the United Way system,” said Hollingsworth. “It is important for us to maintain a high standard of accountability, and this is part of the process to document that our operations are transparent and meet or exceed United Way membership criteria requirements.”
“It is critically important that all United Ways meet the highest standards and verify on paper that they have conformed to the requirements of membership in the United Way system,” said Brian Gallagher, president and CEO of the United Way of America.
“We applaud and congratulate the Greater Ennis United Way for demonstrating their commitment by completing the re-certification process.”
With paperwork finished and filed, plans for the fundraising year are now ready to be set in motion, said Greater Ennis United Way Executive Director Elizabeth Fulton.
“This year’s campaign chairman is Adam Fuentes, who is with Schirm-USA,” Fulton said. “We also have two new agencies, Friends of the Ennis Public library, and CASA of Ellis County.”
Greater Ennis United Way board members include Stacie Hollingsworth, Frank Bartolic, Julie Pierce, Cathie Morales, Jesse DeLeon, Suriyun Sukduang, Gil Escobar, Sara Moss, Kevin Six, Adam Fuentes, Jane Mize, Van A. Morse, Booker T. Washington Jr., Julie Moreno, Brent Gunter, Betty Honza, Matt Keever, Evelyn Jacobson, Cord Blankenship and Elizabeth Fulton.
Among member agencies are ACROSS (A Christian Response of Shelter and Service), American Red Cross of Ellis and Kaufman Counties, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ennis, Candy Cane Corner, The Gingerbread House (Ellis County Children’s Advocacy Center), Ennis Golden Circle, Helping Hands of Ennis, Ellis County Foster Parents Association, Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties, the Ellis County 4-H, CASA of Ellis County, Inc., and the Friends of the Ennis Public Library.
