Lilly's 2013 United Way Campaign Exceeds Goals
This guest blog comes from Andrew McLaughlin, communications consultant for Lilly Global Manufacturing and communications chairperson for Lilly's 2013 United Way campaign.
At Lilly, we recently completed our 2013 United Way fund-raising campaign. This fund-raiser is an annual opportunity for Lilly employees and retirees across the U.S. and Puerto Rico to support the communities in which we operate.
We’re very proud of our 2013 result. For the third year in a row, we set a record, raising $12.6 million! This amount exceeds our 2013 goal, and it’s the most we’ve ever collected for United Way. Our Chairman, President, and CEO, John Lechleiter, Ph.D., presented a check to United Way at a special ceremony today.
It’s a privilege to give to our communities and see them thrive, and there’s no better partner to help us do that than United Way. United Way provides a simple and efficient way to help build our communities by empowering children, individuals, and families to succeed.
