Three individuals were honored for their work on behalf of others. Cristina Simpson, advocate at Lincoln County Schools Newport HELP Center, was given the “Golden Pom-Pom Award,” for her advocacy for programs that advance community welfare. “Cristina is a tireless champion of children and their education,” said Alan Searle, Lincoln County Director of United Way. “She inspires, encourages and motivates others so things move beyond talk toward getting done. I value her unparalleled zeal for cheering people on, even when the going gets tough,” Searle said.

Ralph Grutzmacher, Mayor of Toledo, was given the Golden Glove Award, for his work engaging volunteers. Grutzmacher “was a key to gathering volunteers for a 2013 United Way Day of Caring at Flowerree Community Center in Toledo, and has been a tireless advocate for food security issues in Lincoln County,” Alan Searle said. “The Golden Glove Award is always given to someone who rolls up his or her sleeves to work, but also gets many others to answer the call,” he added.

The recipient of the Golden Megaphone Award was Lola Jones, Executive Director of Samaritan House in Newport. “Lola exemplifies this award, because it is given to someone who displays a tireless drive to give voice to local issues and instigate change in the local community. She is a worker, a volunteer, and advocate for many causes, and a friend to many people of all walks of life,” Searle said.

Several employers were singled out for exceptional service to United Way, including Bi-Mart of Lincoln City, which again in 2013 had 100% employee participation. US Bank of Newport was recognized as the Most Supportive Company, not only for its strong employee participation, but also for volunteer participation and corporate support. Two awards were given for the most improved workplace campaign, one to the employees of Lincoln County and the other to the employees at GP-Toledo. “More than three-quarters of the donations made to United Way come to us through our workplace and corporate partners,” Searle said. “We appreciate how easy these companies make it for their employees to support the causes they care about.”
