A true champion of the common good

Regarding Julie Muhlstein's Wednesday column, "County's voice of charity takes his last bid": The Herald's tribute to Bob Drewel's final auctioneering for Work Opportunities was right on the money. He truly has been a voice of charity and of the community for many years. If a community is lucky, they have a person who is the recognized inspirational leader who is able to motivate the community to be their best and truly care for one another. Snohomish County is lucky. We have Bob Drewel.
Like many in our community, we at United Way of Snohomish County owe a great deal of our success to his tireless efforts, spirit of leadership and steadfast commitment. He has served as a United Way campaign chair three times, been the Master of Ceremonies for our Spirit of Snohomish County Breakfast on numerous occasions, and served on our Board of Directors.
He has consistently rolled up his sleeves and worked hard to create meaningful and sustainable results for everyone in our community. He has truly lived the United Way credo of "advancing the common good."
That's why it was our pleasure to help the Greater Everett Community Foundation launch the Bob Drewel Human Services Fund in 2003 with a contribution of $100,000 in his honor.
Bob cares deeply for the people of Snohomish County and has made a huge difference in improving the quality of life for all.
Bob, thank you for all that you have done and for Living United. Even though you may have called your last auction, we are certain that you will continue to contribute to our community for many years to come.
Dennis G. Smith, Ph.D.
President and CEO, United Way of Snohomish County
