Morrow Adds up Service Years
Marie Morrow remembers transcribing minutes from Board of Directors’ meetings of the Plymouth Community Fund on a typewriter. Two organizational name changes and 32 years later, Morrow leads the nonprofit now known as Plymouth Community United Way.
A lot has changed since Morrow was hired by the nonprofit organization, but not the mission. The focus remains to reach out and serve human needs in Plymouth, Canton and Western Wayne County.
“It’s been challenging over the years, taking it from a totally volunteer organization to the professional organization it is today,” said Morrow, Plymouth Community United Way president. “It’s a business. We’re in the business of helping people and helping make the community a vibrant place to live, work and raise a family. We’re making a difference in people’s lives.”
