Aug 15, 2014 04:34PM, Published by Jason Huddle, Categories: In Print, Community




Concord  – United Way of Central Carolinas has named Sarah Porter as Cabarrus Community Director, overseeing county operations and providing campaign and fund allocation leadership in the Cabarrus community.

 

Previously, Porter was a Development Associate at Charlotte Family Housing, where she directed marketing and public relations efforts, created its marketing and communication plan, and designed and created marketing and promotional materials.

 

Prior to Charlotte Family Housing, Porter worked for nine years as Director of Communications at Classroom Central, securing funding and donations from businesses, community organizations and faith communities, planning and executing special events, and creating and implementing its marketing and public relations efforts.

 

A resident of Charlotte, Porter has been an active volunteer with Junior League of Charlotte, Engage Charlotte, Foundation For The Carolinas, Association for Fundraising Professionals and Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.

 

“We are so pleased that Sarah has joined our team,” said Jane McIntyre, executive director of United Way of Central Carolinas. “Her previous work experience and volunteer involvement make her a tremendous asset to United Way. We know the Cabarrus community will really enjoy working with her and look forward to her continuing the great growth that United Way has recently experienced there.”

 

In her new role, Porter will cultivate and strengthen relationships with individual donors and corporate partners as part of the United Way campaign in the Cabarrus area. She will provide leadership in increasing awareness and understanding of the needs in the area, as well as how donor dollars are being used to meet those needs through funded agencies. She also will work closely with campaign and allocation volunteers throughout the year.

 

“I am honored to join an organization with the sole purpose of improving lives through the power of community,” said Porter. “Working with United Way partner agencies in the past, I’ve seen first-hand all the great things you can achieve when you work together. I look forward to working with the Cabarrus community and our volunteers, as we strive to improve the lives of our neighbors in need.”

 

Porter replaces Barbi Jones, who was promoted to Vice President of Communications, Engagement and Marketing with United Way of Central Carolinas.
