“Our family strongly believes in the power of coordinated action and recognizes Tocqueville’s significant contributions towards achieving United Way’s community goals.”
United Way Tocqueville Society is an alliance of nearly 350 successful business and philanthropic leaders and their families who share a strong commitment and passion for investing in our local community. Paul Farr, past United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley (UWGLV) board member and 2013 campaign chair, and his wife Kym have been giving their time and investments to United Way for over 30 years. They’re deeply committed to UWGLV because of the real and lasting impact that is made in the community they call home.
“Our family strongly believes in the power of coordinated action and recognizes Tocqueville’s significant contributions toward achieving United Way’s community goals. We have been supporting United Way since 1990 and have gradually increased our involvement with the organization, its nonprofit partners, actively volunteering in Allentown schools and Day of Caring events.”
As an executive with PPL and Talen for 20 years, Paul, now retired, and his teams were involved in United Way Community School programs, Day of Caring, volunteering and mentoring at schools in Allentown and held a number of board roles with partner agencies. Paul is extremely proud to have played a leading role in increasing PPL’s employee and retiree United Way giving commitments during his tenure.
Currently, Paul is a board member of the Cay Galgon Life House, a United Way partner agency, and the Belmont Child Care Association, and Kym has been involved in several projects supporting partner agencies’ donation efforts and programs.
Paul and Kym reside in Center Valley and have six children: Caleb, Ivy, Jade, Jacob, Lily and Noah.
