Edward W. Muransky challenged businesses and individuals to step up in the community and raise their giving to the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.
“We have to get to the kids, and that fits the goals of Muransky Companies and the United Way,” said Muransky, speaking Wednesday at the annual meeting of The Community Corp., parent organization of the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.
The event, sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield at Muransky’s The Lake Club, included recognition of donors and volunteers.
Also, Becky Wall, vice president of Dearing Compressor and Pump Co. in Youngstown, was announced as chairwoman of the United Way’s 2013 financial campaign.
Wall succeeds Theodore M. Schmidt of PNC Bank, who headed the 2012 financial, which exceeded its $2.5 million goal in a tough economy.
