Luling man finds fulfillment through work with United Way St. Charles

Born and raised in Luling, Zack Young was elected Justice of the Peace for District 2 in 2021. His involvement in the United Way St. Charles positioned him front and center to help in St. Charles Parish after Hurricane Ida.

UWSC Executive Director John Dias said Young donated countless hours in the weeks immediately following Hurricane Ida by helping load the organization’s trailer with water and supplies and delivering the goods to churches around the parish that served as pick up locations.

“We probably pushed out several thousand pounds of groceries,” Young, who is the chairman of UWSC’s finance committee and sits on the executive board, said.

He added that his work with UWSC has been fulfilling.

“It’s one of those organizations that people can walk in in the door and leave with a solution,” Young said. “There’s no red tape. We have the ability to act very quickly. I’ve just always had this feeling of a call for service. When there’s a need to be filled … it wasn’t even a thought … it’s just what you do – putting others before yourself.”

Young is also involved in the Rotary Club of St. Charles Parish and Dat Dad’s Club.
