CHESTER — They say it’s not what you know, but who you know.
Well, the United Way of Queen Anne’s County knows Renee Sheehy Sr., public affairs manager with Delmarva Power. Executive Director Sandra Early met Sheehy just over five years ago.
“It’s a wonderful partnership for which the United Way is thankful,” Early said.
According to Sheehy, “Delmarva Power is proud to be a partner to United Way Queen Anne’s County. We are grateful for our generous employees who donate to the United Way through a variety of employee giving programs, fundraisers, and cash match programs such as Dollars for Doers, an incentive for volunteer hours that is matched with contribution dollars.”
Additionally, Sheehy has assisted with securing local sponsorships for all the United Way of Queen Anne’s County events. She recently played in the annual golf tournament and brought several Delmarva Power colleagues.
“I look forward to the golf tournament every year and was glad to hear that it was not canceled, but only postponed due to COVID this year,” Sheehy said.
Strategic partnerships such as this help ensure that the generosity of the Delmarva Power employees goes right back into their community. It’s neighbors helping neighbors.
Speaking of who you know, the United Way of Queen Anne’s County has board members who give generously of their time, knowledge and expertise. The new officers for 2020-2021 were recently voted in and are as follows: President Vicki Wood Dean with Shore United Bank; Vice President Kelly Huber with the QAC Character Counts Program; Treasurer Scott Surguy with SCD Information Technology; and Secretary Heather Comegys with Ebb Tide Tent and Party Rentals.
Incoming President Vicki Wood Dean wanted to thank everyone involved in the Golf Tournament this year.
“Eva and Bill Stoops were our committee chairs again this year and really stepped up coordinating the changes that had to happen to reschedule. There were also plenty of new guidelines to follow. They did a stellar job shifting gears to make this event happen ... and be successful,” Dean said.
The tournament netted over $6,000 this year and those funds will be allocated to 22 local agencies that serve community needs from children to seniors, covering areas from health and human services to the arts and the environment.
