Hengels named United Way’s Fall Campaign Co-Chairs

Dave and Kelley Hengel will co-chair the United Way of Bemidji Area’s annual campaign for the community this year.

“Dave and Kelley have a passion for our community as demonstrated by their community involvement and volunteerism,” said Denae Alamano, Executive Director of United Way of Bemidji Area.

“We are grateful for their willingness to participate as chairs for the campaign and know they will do a great job.”

“As those of us who live here know, we all live, work and play in a very special
place. We have been blessed to have meaningful careers here and to have raised our kids in Bemidji—our home,” the Hengels shared.

Dave Hengel is the Executive Director of Greater Bemidji and Kelley Hengel is a counselor at Bemidji High School.

“Nothing exemplifies Bemidji’s generosity more than the United Way campaign. This year’s United Way campaign says it perfectly: ‘Live United: It’s more than just a slogan’. Charity is in the DNA of our community—it is who we are—and we are so excited to play a part in bringing our community together.”

The fall campaign kicks off Sept. 15.
