Lee’s Summit, MO (July 19, 2013) – Coldwater of Lee’s Summit announced today the appointment of Rachel Cash as its new Executive Director. She is joined by Monte Stull, named Community Director. Coldwater’s mission to serve those in need and to build community friendships will be served by Cash’s background in faith-based non-profits and Stull’s long-time and deep involvement in the Lee’s Summit community.

The Board voted last Monday night to replace existing interim Executive Directors as well as to fill the new position of Community Director. “I am extraordinarily excited to serve as Coldwater’s Executive Director,” Cash said. “I am inspired by the work that Coldwater has already done, and their hope and vision for future ways to serve Lee’s Summit.” Stull added, “I look forward to building friendships with Coldwater and the community.”

Cash and Stull’s appointments support four-year-old Coldwater’s commitment to expanding their service in Lee’s Summit. Coldwater Board President, Chuck Arney, stated, “The decision of the Board was unanimous in hiring both Ms. Cash, and Mr. Stull. We believe that this new direction will allow us to reach deeper into the community with friendship and hope.”

Coldwater seeks to break down socio-economic barriers and build friendships through serving the community. Coldwater serves community members needing food assistance through food pantry, senior mobile pantry, and No Hungry Kids programs. Coldwater also provides a clothes closet and community events such as Summer Barbecues and the League of Smiles T-ball programs. Coldwater seeks to work closely with businesses, NGOs, schools, and local government to meet community needs.

Ms. Cash has an undergraduate degree with emphases in Political Science and Economics from William Jewell College. She has previously worked with the Community of Christ, Community of Christ Historic Sites, Friends Committee on National Legislation and KC LINC. Mr. Stull has been actively involved with Coldwater, serving on various program committees as well as the executive board.
