Joe Craig

Campaign & Donor Relations Director

Former Morning News Publisher Joe Craig has re-joined the United Way team after working on the 2019/2020 Campaign. After a successful newspaper career, he is committed to helping the United Way of Florence County and its Partner Agencies achieve their goals for serving our community. “We all want to know that we’re making a difference and helping create positive change,” Joe said. He has worked with over a dozen nonprofit agencies during his newspaper career. Joe believes the United Way offers the best bridge between those who want to help others and those that need that help. Joe’s wife Kathy has worked at nonprofits most of her career and currently handles HR and Admin duties at the Leatherman Senior Center. Between the two of them, Kathy and Joe feel they are making a difference where it matters the most. Florence is a great place to live. The way the Craigs see it: Helping fortunate people help the less fortunate is both an honor and a joy.
