Jackie Gaines has thousands of stories to tell. As the first woman to lead the annual fund-raising campaign for United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, Gaines is eager to tell all of her stories to those who want to help their neighbors.
Her stories go back 20 years, when she lived in Baltimore, Md., and worked as the president and CEO of a United Way-funded agency. They continued when she became a United Way volunteer, then a board member.
