Welcoming Carla Zuniga as Board Chair
At United Way of Lake County’s Annual Meeting on May 16, our outgoing board chair, Andrew Warrington, handed over the gavel to incoming board chair, Carla Zuniga.
Carla Zuniga is the Senior Vice President of Allstate Insurance Company’s Brand Operations. Carla has been an active Board member since 2012. From 2015 to 2017 she served as the Chair of Women United. While leading Women United she reinvigorated the group and led the building of a strong leadership structure for Women United.
Since 2017, Carla has co-chaired UWLC’s Premier Leadership Event along with fellow board member Azita Saleki-Gerhardt. For the past 2 years over $400,000 has been raised and she’s getting ready to co-chair this fun event again in June.
Looking forward, Carla will be focusing on two priorities for United Way of Lake County. The first, the launch of 211 this fall! This service will connect Lake County residents through a phone call or text, to various resources from shelter and housing options, supplemental food programs, health care and mental health services, addiction support, crisis counseling and more to help improve and save lives. The second, the launch of a Young Leader’s Society, with the focus on engaging young professionals in Lake County volunteerism and philanthropy. She looks forward to growing the next generation of philanthropists in Lake County.
