Unsung Heroes of 2017


Each year, Community Foundation of the Florida Keys honors an Unsung Hero volunteer from non-profit agencies in the Keys. This year, they instead chose to honor the agencies' hurricane recovery work.

Leah Stockton, Ann Sandlin, Maria Jones, and Andy Griffiths represented UWFK at the annual Unsung Hero Luncheon was held on January 26.

"Thanks to generous support from near and far, the United Way of the Florida Keys has been working hard to serve our friends and neighbors impacted by the hurricane’s destruction, earmarking over $1 million towards helping our community on the long road to recovery. Just days after the storm we distributed supplies and gift cards, and have continued to assist by providing over $600,000 to 31 local nonprofits and beginning an emergency case management program. United Way of the Florida Keys is committed to helping the Keys community rebuild and recover."
