Columbia, S.C. (November 16, 2018) – Employees of Colliers International, the largest commercial real estate services firm in South Carolina and a long time supporter of United Way of the Midlands, completed their 2018 United Way campaign raising nearly $48,000, a six percent increase over last year’s campaign.
“Colliers International employees deliver outstanding results each year during their annual United Way campaign and continue to be an amazing partner for us and the Midlands community,” said United Way President and CEO Sara Fawcett. “It is always inspiring to see how dedicated their employees are to investing in United Way, even though many of the employees are compensated through commissions earned from real estate transactions.”
HR Manager, Christina Kutsherenko chaired this year’s employee campaign committee for Colliers International and stated, “One of the primary core values of Colliers International is ‘community’ and our staff embraces that commitment in great measure through our active participation in the United Way campaign and volunteer opportunities they present to us.”
Thanks to local partners like Colliers International, United Way is leading the charge in improving quality of life in the Midlands by working to prevent homelessness, to provide affordable eye and dental care, and to prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to learn and graduate high school on time.
