The United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades, has concluded the 2013-2014 Campaign and exceeded the campaign goal of $8,320,793.

John Clinger, 2013-2014 United Way Campaign Chair, and Senior Vice-President of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and Senior Financial Advisor of Clinger, Sizemore and Associates   announced that local residents and companies contributed $8,590,333 to the campaign which is a 5.5% increase over the amount raised last year.

At the goal announcement Clinger said, “I am very excited to announce that the United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades has exceeded the campaign goal for the 21st consecutive year!  Our wonderful community has done it again!

“Thank you to every individual and company who gave to the United Way Campaign. The residents of our community realized that many friends and neighbors are struggling. Because of your generosity, hungry families will receive food, abused children and adults can find shelter, Alzheimer’s caregivers can have respite, and babies and toddlers can get a healthy start in life. You gave so others could have a better life.  I am very proud to live in Southwest Florida where people really care about each other.

“Making our campaign goal means that the 70 United Way Partner Agencies and the 175 programs United Way supports will receive their full allocation of funding this year. Although the economy has improved, there are still many families, children, and elderly that continue to struggle in our community. By exceeding goal, United Way supported programs and initiatives will be able to expand their services and make sure that more people in our community receive the help that they need,” Clinger continued. “Thank you to all of the individuals, companies, communities and partner agencies for your generous contributions.  You proved once again what a great caring community this is,” Clinger concluded.
