We are changing the world right here at home through our mix of in-house Initiatives and funded partners. Together, we served over a million individuals since the pandemic. To be exact, 1,015,713 people! United, we can do so much more.
Because we know that UNITED is the word...
Catch The Feeling
Gregory P. Thibodeaux, director for business development at Turner Industries, assisted with the first Battle for the Paddle fundraiser and was the 2019 Leonard Richard Employee Campaign Chair (ECC) Awardee. Thibodeaux, an LSU graduate, will lead the community workplace giving campaigns with the 2022 theme of "Catch the Feeling."
"We are incredibly fortunate that we consistently attract dedicated community members who donate their time and talent to United Way of Southwest Louisiana," said Denise Durel, President and CEO. "These individuals are leaders who commit to our mission and four pillars: education, healthcare, economic mobility and basic needs. We are always grateful for their service as they help lead all of us forward after several devastating years."
