Crye-Leike Realtors rallied together to help the company’s 2012 United Way campaign raise $22,300 for local charities in the counties Crye-Leike serves.

In each of the nine states the company serves, Crye-Leike’s branch offices and realtors host various fundraisers to help the folks in their community who need it most. Whether the offices organize a coat drive for the homeless or a chili cook-off fundraiser, the realtors enjoy choosing different charities to support in their local community. 

In addition to all of the office charity events the company’s realtors host, Crye-Leike holds an annual United Way Campaign to collect money for various charitable organizations supported by United Way.

Crye-Leike realtors rallied together to help the company’s 2012 United Way campaign raise $22,300 for local charities in the counties Crye-Leike serves. 

“Our 2012 United Way campaign was another great success,” said Crye-Leike Cofounder and CEO Harold Crye. “Crye-Leike is thankful to have so many generous agents and employees who are excited to be Good Samaritans in their community helping their neighbors in need.” 

This year, Crye-Leike took their United Way campaign in a new direction giving their agents and employees a chance to donate online with a campaign website built especially for the company associates. Crye-Leike also encouraged its agents to visit United Way’s website and type in their zip code to see all of the ways the organization supports their local community. 

 “We wanted Crye-Leike associates to see all of the success stories their local United Way has so they would know exactly what their personal pledges would do to support the organization and the community,” said Crye-Leike Public Relations Manager Melissa Spoonamore. “United Way partners with and assists a diverse range of charities that help people in the community in several ways including providing food and shelter, counseling families and people with problems especially in times of crisis, providing services to working parents, helping and preparing kids to succeed and face life’s challenges, providing care to seniors helping them remain independent and so much more. Crye-Leike is glad to know that United Way multiplies the value of our personal monetary gifts by joining it with other donations to have a greater impact on the crucial issues facing the local communities.” 

In order to jumpstart its annual United Way campaign, Crye-Leike also organized a pumpkin decorating contest this fall where agents and employees gathered up their arts and crafts supplies and carving tools to decorate a pumpkin for a good cause. Crye-Leike’s pumpkin decorating contest collected $400 for United Way and was an event to kick off the company’s 2012 personal pledge campaign for United Way.

“Crye-Leike cares about our communities and we proudly support many charitable organizations including United Way, Youth Villages, Habitat for Humanity and numerous other local charities in the counties we serve,” said Mr. Crye. “Since first opening the company doors in 1977, Crye-Leike realtors have always been passionate about volunteering and fundraising for a variety of different charities near and dear to their hearts.”

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
