Quala-Die supports the United Way
Recently representatives from Quala-Die including Rick Schatz, Lynn Schatz, Dan Vogt, and Tim Ruberto presented a generous donation to support the St. Marys Area United Way. Receiving the check on behalf of the United Way was Jason Gabler, United Way corporate campaign chair and Doug Bauer, United Way payroll committee chair.
This donation supported the 2022 campaign. Also, included in that donation are dollars that were donated directly from employees who personally donated through Quala-Die’s 2022 payroll program. Doug Bauer, United Way payroll committee chair recognized each contributing employee with a blanket as a token of appreciation for their donation. These blankets were purchased through a grant United Way received to help rejuvenate the payroll program following COVID. Funding that was raised in 2022 is available for organizations to seek grant funding in 2023. The St. Marys Area United Way has served the citizens of the City of St. Marys and surrounding counties since 1925. Making a contribution to the St. Marys Area United Way allows the donor to provide support to local agencies.
