Arlington Announces United Way Fundraising Goal Exceeded

2019 campaign pledges will support United Way organizations across company footprint

Arlington Properties today announced that through participation in United Way of Central Alabama’s (UWCA) Pacesetter campaign, it has exceeded its 2019 goal to raise $130,000 by raising $130,200 in support of UWCA and other United Way organizations in the 14-state area where the company operates. The initiative is in advance of UWCA’s 2019 “Be an Everyday Hero” fall campaign in the central Alabama area.

“Throughout the years, Arlington has been honored to stand as a Pacesetter partner, raising funds for United Way of Central Alabama, and as our business has grown, United Way organizations in other states where we do business,” said Jim Dixon, Arlington president and CEO. “This year’s campaign results were achieved with the outstanding support of our civic-minded employees and the committed leadership of campaign coordinator Reel Howell, along with Stringer Vogtle and Kara Glover.”

Arlington has participated in the Pacesetter Campaign since its inception, joining this past summer with a select group of companies who demonstrate dedication to mission and fundraising efforts for United Way of Central Alabama.

“As individuals, we can only accomplish so much. But by working together as a community, we can make great things happen,” said Dixon. “That’s what community is all about. Neighbors helping neighbors. That philosophy is part of our core commitment to integrity uncompromised, and it’s how we strive to do business and participate in meaningful ways in each community where we work.”

United Way of Central Alabama began in 1923 with 31 agencies as a cooperative action to address Birmingham’s human services issues. Today, the United Way serves over 80 programs and initiatives through a yearly fundraising impact of more than $38 million.

United Way organizations within Arlington’s 14-state footprint provide solutions for needs in the community through partner agencies and initiatives that seek to improve lives and conditions by building and mobilizing resources of support for areas served.
