Benjamin Goldberg, Williamsburg Regional Library’s Development Officer, was recently honored by the United Way of Greater Williamsburg as one three Campaign Coordinators of the Year. Benjamin has coordinated the library's United Way Campaign for 15 years.
“Because staff are so community oriented, people are always very supportive of United Way,” Goldberg says. “We naturally want to give back to our community, and helping United Way is one great way to do that.”
Beside the satisfaction of donating to a worthy cause, library staff has been encouraged to participate in the campaign over the years by the opportunity to win home-baked goods from the Goldberg family. Last year Williamsburg Regional Library staff had a 15% increase in giving from the previous year.
