1st Lake Properties, Inc. Raises 10K For United Way Campaign
NEW ORLEANS – 1st Lake Properties, Inc. team members helped raise $10,000.00 for the United Way 2015 Southeast Region campaign. These funds are given to local charities for basic needs with housing and food to more complex needs such as victims of domestic abuse.
Funds were raised through fun team competitions, personal donations, a raffle, and a “Wear Your Jeans and Jersey to Work Day” fundraiser. United Way reps said support from donors like 1st Lake Properties help to assure local families have shelter and housing, given employment assistance, child advocacy, financial stability and independence, and much more.
“We are grateful to companies such as 1st Lake Properties who recognize the meaning of ‘Live United’ and invest their time and dollars to better our region,” said Candice Caccioppi, United Way Director of Resource Development. “The need in our community is great, but through generous donations like those from 1st Lake Properties, we are able to support vital programs in Southeast Louisiana. From raising families out of poverty through financial education, with uplifting the spirits of cancer patients with support systems, to giving children a brighter future with early learning standards, our work is making a difference.”
“The tools and support the United Way gives to help struggling families become financially stable is recognized by our employees,” said Michele Shane L’Hoste, President of 1st Lake Properties. “Our team has a true sense of community and wants to invest in the best possible outcome for our neighborhoods.”
United Way of the Southeast Region focuses on three areas of impact: education, income and health. They invite anyone to join their organization who wishes to donate, advocate or volunteer.
Since 1970, 1st Lake Properties, Inc. has designed and developed over 70 apartment communities, as well as retail and office developments. Their mission is to provide their residents with a positive living experience and exceptional customer service.
