JM Family did it again!

Associates in South Florida and Alpharetta, Ga., rallied together to raise a record-breaking $621,000 as part of the company’s annual ‘We Give’ to United Way campaign, which supported the United Way chapters of Broward County and Greater Atlanta. The annual associate-led fundraising drive took place from August 12 – August 23, 2019 with 607 associates participating. 

“In just two short weeks, we proved the power we have when we all unite around a common goal,” said Brent Burns, president and CEO, JM Family Enterprises. “Through their participation, our dedicated associates demonstrated their commitment to supporting the important work of the United Way and all they do as an organization to improve the lives of others in our community.”

The United Way collaborates with partner organizations and cities from all corners of the county to identify critical needs, and develop programs that deliver measurable, long-lasting results. Together they reduce poverty, improve job opportunities and help residents develop important life skills.

In addition to this annual campaign, JM Family associates share their time volunteering through United Way sponsored initiatives, including Reading Pals which allows associates to spend one hour per week reading with a local elementary school students from books provided by the United Way, and have provided job skills workshops for returning veterans through the organization’s Mission United arm. Select JM Family members also share talents on various United Way boards. JM Family is a longstanding sponsor of the annual United Way of Broward County’s Mayors’ Gala.
