The United Way of York County's president announced that she plans to step down at the end of the year.

Anne Druck, who has served as the nonprofit's president since 2018, will leave effective Dec. 31. Amy Wannemacher, a board member, will temporarily step into the position.

Druck helped raise over $20 million over the last five years for the causes the United Way supports, according to the organization. That included $1.4 million in funds to help support people during the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020-2021 Rotary Club of York President Anne Druck honored Past District Governor Paddy Rooney with a Presidential Citation at the Wednesday, June 30, 2021 club meeting at the Country Club of York. Paddy, a member for 14 years, including President 2016-2017; was awarded for his outstanding "Service Above Self," loyal dedication, and unwavering commitment to the Rotary Club of York. The Club bid Paddy a heartfelt goodbye and best wishes on his move to the Raleigh, NC area. submitted

“(Druck) has been a passionate advocate for York County, not only through her years at United Way, but throughout her entire career,” said Tolbert. “We wish her only the best as she moves on to her next chapter.”

Druck's departure follows shortly after its former board chair, Scott Deisley, stepped down from his position following an investigation of misconduct related to his work as the Red Lion schools superintendent.
