She is a conduit and activator for young women and the greater Hispanic community of the South Plains. She is best known for her passion for volunteerism, with a focus on education. Margie is a walking testament of hope: overcoming the obstacles of being a teenage mother, a valiant cancer survivor, and a non-traditional college student. She aspires to encourage anyone she meets that anything is possible, all you need is ganas (desire).

Tom & Kathy Krile

Tom and Kathy Krile have been volunteering with the Catholic Charities Resale Center for 15 years. Both found unique ways to use their talents. Tom, a retired electrical engineer, checks and repairs electrical items such as lamps and appliances. Kathy mends and organizes items such as curtains, sheets, and fabric.

With 15 years of service, the Kriles have not only donated hundreds of hours of time but have also essentially helped raised thousands of dollars to benefit Catholic Charities clients.

Team members represent many departments, and most are current or former Loaned Executives who have firsthand experience with United Way’s impact. They share their experiences and how United Way supports UMC’s patients and employees.
