Nicolle says, “I am thrilled to join the United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha, & Pierce Counties. Staff, the board and multiple stakeholders have done a wonderful job expanding our reach. We have made great deposits in financial stability, health, and education, but now our communities are contending with housing disparities and hunger as well. We have a bright future ahead of us and we will continue to be an agent of change.”

Please help us to welcome Nicolle.
