United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee celebrated the success of the first year of their ReadingPals literacy program with a beautiful reception for the volunteer “Pals”, teachers, and school staff.

Volunteers were thanked for their dedication to reading to young children for one hour a week during the school year. Teachers and school staff were also recognized and thanked with gift cards donated by Target.

Thanks to FineMark National Bank & Trust for hosting this celebration in their newly remodeled lobby and for providing scrumptious appetizers, desserts, and beverages.

The VITA Volunteer Appreciation Dinner was held at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre's Café Cabaret on April 25th in honor of our fantastic volunteers! With volunteer assistance this tax season, United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee and our partners completed over 3,450 tax returns free of charge for families in our community. WE LOVE OUR VITA VOLUNTEERS!!!
This service helps hard working families claim the tax credits they qualify for while saving hundreds of dollars in tax preparation fees. This year, our volunteers assisted their clients in claiming over $4,689,000 in tax refunds!!! Money that’s now available to be used as a down payment on a first home, college tuition, payment for utilities, clothing, rent, car repair or necessary medical procedures. It can be the start of a new savings plan and the path to financial stability.
VITA volunteers make a difference in this community through their hard work and dedication. Thank you for Living United!!!
