Crye-Leike Real Estate Services, the nation's sixth largest residential real estate brokerage firm, concluded its 2016 United Way Workplace Campaign by raising a total of $ 89,387 company-wide to support United Way agencies located in 29 counties in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
Since becoming a partner with United Way in 1995, Crye-Leike, its sales associates and corporate staff company-wide have contributed in excess of $800,000.
“Our company’s partnership with United Way is a perfect philanthropic fit for our real estate company," said Joyce E. Friedman, affiliate broker and vice president of corporate communications of Crye-Leike Real Estate Services who served as co-chair of Crye-Leike’s 2016 United Way Workplace Campaign. "By giving to United Way, Crye-Leike is investing in the communities we serve.
"We know that United Way’s board members and other volunteers safeguard the monies raised with a stringent process for prioritizing needs, evaluating agencies and their programs and distributing funds to those agencies most deserving and in need. Their diligence produces results and allows United Way to make a positive impact on our neighbors like supporting people in crisis, enriching seniors’ lives, strengthening families, promoting health and independence and helping youth succeed.”
Second only to the federal government, United Way is the largest provider of funding for health and human services in the nation.
