Pelican Preserve Community Campaign
United Way proudly works in many communities in Lee County. Our community campaigns provide an opportunity for residents to give of their time and talents and to connect with others who share the same passion to improve the lives of those around us.
The Pelican Preserve Community had a goal of $90,000 and together over $106,000 was raised! Thank you for helping the 2022-2023 United Way Campaign exceed our goal by reaching $11.2 million! Your generous contribution during these unprecedented times enables us to provide the most impactful resources and services to our community in need.
All money raised in the United Way Campaign stays in the local community to help support the local human service network. United Way partner agencies and initiatives like Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimer’s Resource Center, Child Care of Southwest Florida, The Salvation Army, Bonita Springs Assistance, Lighthouse of Southwest Florida, Mission United, and United Way 211 serve a diverse range of needs in our community such as nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, and meeting critical needs such as helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods.
