Crye-Leike of Memphis Continues Partnership with United Way

Memphis, Tenn. –  Crye-Leike, Realtors in Memphis is continuing its commitment to participate in United Way’s 2001 workplace campaign, announced Steve Brown, vice president and general manager of Crye-Leike, Inc. in Memphis, Tenn.

“With the devastating events of September 11, 2001, Crye-Leike understands the important role United Way plays for those communities directly affected by the terrorists activities,” said Brown. “The donations collected from United Way workplace campaigns are vital in maintaining the community-wide infrastructure that helps sustain the quality of life in our communities. Long after the rescue teams have dispersed, United Way will be there for the recovery and rebuilding process to heal lives, families and shattered communities.”

Crye-Leike’s United Way workplace campaign for its Memphis Region is being held in its 22 branch and franchise offices located in nine counties throughout a three-state Mid-South region:

ARKANSAS –  Crittendon, Craighead and Mississippi counties; MISSISSIPPI – DeSoto, Lafayette, Lee and Union counties; and TENNESSEE: Hardin and Shelby counties.

“Crye-Leike also is committed to supporting United Way corporate wide because of the depth of health and human services needs it reaches within the communities in which Crye-Leike serves,” said Brown. “We have regional fund-raising workplace campaigns also being conducted in the Greater Nashville and the Greater Chattanooga areas.”

Crye-Leike has a network of over 2,200 sales associates, 600 support staff and 54 branch and franchise offices in a four-state Mid-South region. Since Crye-Leike’s 2000 United Way workplace campaign, sales associates and employees have contributed in excess of $79,000.
