Sylvia’s Story

Building a Stronger Community

Sylvia Grube

Employee Campaign Coordinator

As an Employee Campaign Coordinator since 2010, Sylvia Grube works to encourage her co-workers to join her in supporting the Tulsa Area United Way and its 61 partner agencies.

Her natural, outgoing personality was seen as an asset, and Sylvia was approached by executives at Crane Carrier Company to spearhead their annual Employee Campaign.

Drawing on her own personal history receiving services from United Way agencies, Sylvia jumped at the opportunity. She enjoys the opportunity to connect with co-workers, especially at the Day of Caring.

Last year, Sylvia and some of her associates volunteered at a childcare center as part of the Day of Caring. She also was able to bring several speakers from TAUW partner agencies to share stories with her co-workers.

Hearing from agency clients and volunteering in the community are ideal ways to introduce co-workers to the needs of the community, she says. “I’m looking forward to expanding participation in this year’s campaign, helping to build a stronger community.”
