United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades announced that Hannah Pelle and Megan Fasig have joined the headquarters staff.
Pelle is the new United Way director of allocations and community planning. She is responsible for working with United Way partner agencies, managing the applications for funding and planning for future community needs. She formerly was employed by the South County YMCA and Florida Gulf Bank. She is very active in the Chamber of Commerce Women In Business and Metro-McGregor Kiwanis.
Fasig is the campaign manager for the United Way and will be managing United Way campaigns in local companies and government agencies. She was formerly employed by Marine Max and the Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida.
Cliff Smith, president of the United Way, said of the appointments, "Both Hannah and Megan are highly knowledgeable of local United Way partner agencies and the needs of our community. I welcome them to the staff and am sure they will be enormous assets to both our partner agencies and our community."
Since the inception of United Way in 1957, $112 million have been raised in our community. 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, Children's Advocacy Center, Harry Chapin Food Bank, The Salvation Army, and United Way 211 serve a diverse range of needs in our community such as nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, meeting critical needs such as helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies and initiatives, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives.
