“Everyone at Holladay is extremely proud of Cassie’s dedication to her work at the United Way as she has gone above and beyond her duties with her role on the United Way Board,” said Jackie Green, Partner & VP – Property Management recently said about Cassandra “Cassie” Sprigg, Holladay Properties’ United Way Campaign Manager. In addition to serving as Holladay’s Social Media Coordinator, Cassie is also a part of the Indiana Property Management Team led by Jackie Green.
Cassie was recognized at the United Way of St. Joseph County’s annual meeting breakfast on February 15th at the Salvation Army Kroc Center. While Cassie could not be at the event due to illness, a team of Holladay staff attended in support of her efforts and were on hand to cheer wildly when she was honored as a “Change Maker” for her volunteer role on the 2017 Program Solutions Investment Panel.
“We are extremely grateful for Holladay Properties’ commitment to building a better community for us all by encouraging Cassie to participate is such a key area of our work,” said Rachel Brown, Director of Mission Advancement for the United Way of St. Joseph County. “More importantly, through Cassie’s active and collaborative role, she is helping United Way make tremendous strides toward breaking the cycle of generational poverty and helping stabilize the families of today.”
Cassie has made a huge impact on the both the Holladay team and the United Way. Last May, she was honored with the award for Campaign Manager of the Year at the annual United Way of St. Joseph County Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon for her efforts in the 2016 South Bend office fundraiser which raised $18,100 for the charitable organization.
“This is a great story of a temporary employee that has filled a necessary position and is doing a great job! She always has a smile, very warm to all the visitors and callers. She is such a positive and energetic person, ” Manette Tepe, Partner & VP-Development said. “I am very proud that she is part of our Holladay team!”
