18 LCEC Employees Participate on United Way Fund Distribution Teams

March 23, 2023 – LCEC is proud to be a top fundraiser for the United Way of Lee, Hendy, and Glades Counties. Through fundraising events and employee, board and corporate contributions, LCEC commits every year to helping the United Way reach its annual goal. Our support of the United Way doesn’t stop with fundraising efforts. Each year, LCEC employees volunteer to participate on United Way Distribution Teams. Fund distribution (allocations) is the process that United Way uses to decide where to invest donations. The United Way recruits hundreds of volunteers from the community to represent the thousands of donors who contribute to the campaign to participate in allocations process. This year, there are 28 fund distribution teams on which 18 LCEC employees are serving on. “Serving on a fund distribution team is an absolute honor, and has given me the opportunity to learn so much about the amazing agencies which the United Way serves. Participating in this process gives you an in-depth understanding and true appreciation of how every single penny donated to our United Way goes directly to serving so many essential needs in our community,” said Senior Public Relations Specialist Laura Puerto.
