Kelly K. Malone
Following the retirement of longtime Executive Director, Mr. Clare Houser, the Board of Directors appointed Kelly K. Malone to the position of Executive Director in 2004. While Kelly's first year as Executive Director proved to be a busy one, it also proved to be highly successful as the agency well surpassed its goal.
Kelly began her career with the Schuylkill United Way in 1992 as the Secretary-Bookkeeper and assumed the position of Director of Community Relations in 2000. Kelly resides in Orwigsburg with her husband, Michael and she has two daughters, Erin and Katie.

We Are...Leadership Strong!
The Schuylkill United Way is governed by its own individual bylaws, constitution, and code of ethics.
While United Way Worldwide and United Way of Pennsylvania provide branding and support services, it is the 30-member Board of Directors who are dedicated to providing funding, guidance, and encouragement to the 15 partner agencies that provide programs and services to residents of Schuylkill County for little to no charge. Board members and officers are comprised of businessmen and women who live and work in Schuylkill County and the immediate surrounding area. All board members volunteer their time and are elected for a term of three years and can serve two consecutive terms. Regular meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 4:00 PM.
