The idea of having a “United Fund” to support local needs spread to Lee County in 1958 when area business leaders joined together to offer a giving opportunity for their employees. The tradition of giving via payroll deduction at work continues to this day and the annual United Way campaign is still the largest communitywide fundraiser in Lee County. The workplace campaign is at the heart of that effort.
