Birmingham, Ala., December 18, 2023—The numbers are in and are impressive. This year’s United Way Campaign was a success, with pledges from across the Arlington family of companies supporting important causes through United Way of Central Alabama, a non-profit community services organization Arlington Properties has partnered with for many years.
Team members from Arlington Properties, PBS, and Arlington Construction rallied to make a difference in the lives of others during the 2023 United Way campaign, raising over $275,000.
“I am thrilled but not at all surprised at the level of participation from our team members at Arlington Properties, PBS (Professional Building Services,) and Arlington Construction, said Arlington’s President, Jim Dixon. They rise to the occasion and exceed expectations whenever there is a need. I am incredibly proud of their heartfelt support of United Way.”
The monies pledged through payroll deduction and matched by Arlington Properties, Inc., will be used for critical services for the most vulnerable populations, including HOMELESS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS by providing after-school programs and hygiene essentials, to serving homebound seniors through MEALS ON WHEELS, to a program providing homeless veterans with the resources to maintain dignity through housing, jobs, and educational opportunities PRIORITY VETERANS.
Arlington’s Director of Human Resources, Caitlyn Limberg, who spearheaded the campaign, said, “The goal of our 2023 United Way Campaign was to raise money to help more individuals in our communities thrive—not just survive. Every dollar contributed makes a meaningful impact, and together, we can create a brighter future for all.”
The campaign appealed to team members to celebrate their giving using digital communication platforms by featuring pledge news on popular social media sites. The HR team distributed selfie frames co-branded with United Way and the Arlington Cares logos and campaign hashtags #GiveUnited and #TogetherWeChangeLives.
“Our teams launched kick-off parties and took selfies to share their commitment to the cause, and had an opportunity to win SWAG, making it a fun time for everyone. Participants had the option for pledge contributions to be directed to a team member’s hometown United Way, which made their giving even more personal.”
