WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (November 17, 2006) – To help make this year’s holiday season a little brighter for deserving families in Palm Beach County, the law firm of Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart has made a donation to the Town of Palm Beach United Way that will be used to help feed the hungry throughout the community.
“Gunster is extremely proud to partner with the United Way to provide this much-needed assistance during the holiday season,” said Nicole Atkinson, attorney at Gunster Yoakley and a member of the allocations committee for the Town of Palm Beach United Way. “We are wholly committed to being active members of the community, helping however we can to improve the lives of those around us.”
The Town of Palm Beach United Way is a local, volunteer-driven organization that currently supports 109 vital health and human service programs at 46 local non-profit agencies, and has been aiding in the community for 62 years. Through partnerships, long-term planning and wise investment of donor contributions, the United Way works to create lasting positive changes in Palm Beach County. More than 50 volunteers carefully review agency requests for funding, paying special attention to agency management, program delivery and outcomes, as well as accountability to ensure that donations are really making a difference.
“The life-saving work of the United Way would not be possible without the financial support of local individuals and companies, like Gunster Yoakley,” said Peter Elwell, chairman of the Business and Professional Campaign Committee of the Town of Palm Beach United Way. “We thank the firm for their generous donation and support.”
