United Way of the Cape Fear Area recently welcomed three new business and community leaders to its board.

Gina Andrews, Stacy Ankrum and Ruth Ravitz Smith, have joined the United Way of Cape Fear Area (UWCFA) Board of Directors, according to a press release from the local nonprofit organization.

“These respected individuals volunteer their time and talents to help United Way create long-lasting, positive change to improve lives and strengthen our local community,” officials said in the release.

Andrews is the Business Development Director for Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, a privately held national mortgage banking group headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
