MARSHFIELD — On June 2 Marshfield Area United Way announced the hiring of Mary Wolff as the community impact and Volunteer Center coordinator. The responsibilities of this position include directing the development, implementation, and maintenance of United Way’s impact agenda by way of supporting and collaborating with partnering agencies and community volunteers.
Wolff moved to Marshfield with her family in 2006 and graduated from Marshfield High School in 2012.

“I am thrilled to be working with United Way and all of its members to continue improving and supporting the community that has given me so much,” Wolff said about joining the United Way staff and her return to the community.
The community impact and Volunteer Center coordinator position had been vacant for a number a years. “Thankfully, with the growth of our Nutrition On Weekends program from 29 participants to almost 300 participants, the number of volunteers involved with United Way has also significantly increased. The management of this program and the more than 200 volunteers really created a need for United Way to reinstate the Volunteer Center coordinator. We are excited to have someone to give the Volunteer Center the attention it deserves and anticipate that — as a result — even more individuals and families will become engaged in volunteering in our community,” said Paula Jero, Marshfield Area United Way executive director.
Marshfield Area United Way’s mission is to increase the community’s capacity to care for one another.
