“It’s not just money that makes a difference—it’s time, it’s leadership, it’s vision.”
Terry’s love for reading began with father-daughter trips to the public library as a little girl. Now, she tells anyone she can about important literacy-focused community programs like Imagination Library and Read to Succeed. “These programs are critical for our community to stay strong and become stronger,” she says. Terry has been a United Way advocate for many years and runs her workplace campaign at Comcast Communications each year. She loves being a part of the Young Leaders Society and showing the next generation of donors that even when they’re just starting in their career, they can already be giving back.
