Wilson’s Chair Annual United Way Campaign
Dan and Annie Wilson today were officially introduced as co-chairs of United Way of King County’s 2012-13 campaign.
As faces of the giving campaign, Dan and Annie will be front and center in United Way’s mission to help people in need and take action to help solve our community’s toughest challenges.
Money raised during the campaign, and throughout the year, allows United Way of King County to invest in programs that keep people housed, fed, and able to meet their basic needs; bring an end to chronic homelessness; and arm kids with the kind of early learning that gives every child, regardless of income level, an equal chance at school success.
“That’s why I still live here,” Dan says. “We are blessed to have found such a generous community, and it’s our privilege and duty to get involved in it,” he adds.
“So much is possible when we pull together and work on a community scale,” Annie says. “Dan and I are so excited to get started.”
The Wilsons have been actively involved in the Seattle community since they arrived in 1994 with their work at Seattle’s First Place School—a private nonprofit K–6 school for children facing homelessness or other trauma. They are also active supporters of the adoption agency All God’s Children International and Seattle Children’s Hospital.
