Volunteer Spotlight: Interns David Green and Lauren Harrington

“There was never a week where someone wasn’t smiling because of what United Way does,” said David Green as he reflected on his internship. David served as the spring 2015 Community Impact Administrative Intern. As he prepares to graduate and enter the workforce, he considers himself fortunate to have had the opportunity to intern with United Way. “As a resident of Poughkeepsie, United Way has exposed me to all of the wonderful efforts going on to better this city and Dutchess and Orange Counties at large.”
