Gresham Smith is proud to announce another successful year of raising awareness and funds to support United Way and their partner agencies. 2018 employee and corporate commitments to United Way exceeded $211,000, setting a new one-year giving record for the firm and bringing Gresham Smith’s total contribution to more than $3 million since the partnership began in 1995.
“Supporting quality, well-run organizations such as United Way is a key component of our commitment to give back to the communities where we live, work, play and invest,” commented Al Pramuk, chairman and CEO, Gresham Smith. “Our employees’ enthusiasm during our annual United Way campaign week is a testament to our staff and our dedication to supporting local communities and we’re proud to carry that positive energy into our community outreach during the rest of the year.”
Employees put the fun in fundraising during office-wide competitions and group service activities. The Alpharetta, Midtown Atlanta and Suwanee offices held raffles and pinewood derby races, while Louisville office staff competed in a chili cook-off. Staff in Columbus played office putt-putt, Nashville held a highly competitive cornhole tournament and Tampa employees challenged each other to office chair races. Several offices also worked together to assemble snack packs for local children.
United Way is dedicated to creating lasting change in communities around the world. By improving education, financial stability and health for every individual, the organization provides the building blocks for strong communities. Gresham Smith’s 2018 giving campaign benefited United Way of Greater Atlanta, United Way of Central Alabama, Capital Area United Way, United Way of the Bluegrass, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, United Way of Greater Knoxville, United Way of the Mid-South, United Way of Central Ohio, United Way of the Capital Area, Louisville Metro United Way, United Way of Northeast Florida, United Way Suncoast and United Way of Metropolitan Nashville.
