In her presentation, Alison mentioned a new United Way award founded in honor of Clydella Hentschel, a long-time donor and member of our advisory board. Clydella started contributing to our Christmas program three decades ago and has since supported practically every program we have. When I met Clydella for the first time, I had only been at The Salvation Army for a few weeks. She was rushing out of a meeting at our office, stopped when she saw my nametag, introduced herself and welcomed me. I appreciated her graciousness. Clydella is the first recipient of the award named in her honor. The award has the tagline “Lifting Others as You Climb.” With our wonderful volunteers and donors, we could give that award every day!
