"We are honored to receive such amazing support from Gloria Jones and her family. We hope to honor her husband through all the positive work we are doing within the Success After 6 initiative." said Bob Hannon, President of the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.  "Our United Way is working to break down barriers that our students and families face so they can achieve success, and we can only do that through great community partnerships like this one with Fireline."
