United Way Of Hendry Glades announces campaign chairs


LABELLE — United Way of Hendry and Glades is pleased to announce the co-chairs for the 2021-2022 United Way Campaign. On October 26, Dr. Barbara Mundy and Mr. Andy Tilton will be kicking off this year’s campaign at the LaBelle Civic Center. Join them at 8 a.m. as they prepare to take our community “Back to the Future." The goal for Hendry/Glades has been set at $339,370. United Way is so pleased to have these two leaders of the community spearheading the campaign.

Dr. Barbara Mundy is currently serving as the Director of Federal Programs at the Hendry County School District. Barbara was an Upthegrove Elementary Golden Apple recipient in 2005. She received her National Board Certified Teacher Certification the same year. Barbara’s hobbies are reading, going to the beach, spending time at the pool with grandchildren, and boating in Matlacha.

Barbara has served on various committees over the years including United Way Fund Distribution Committees, a National Pre-K Task Force, Migrant Comprehensive Needs Assessment Committee, National Migrant Conference Committee, and as a Board Member of the United Way Partner Agency, ChildCare of Southwest Florida. Mundy states, “I am proud to be a campaign co-chair for United Way. The assistance United Way provides to families in need and their support for the community is very inspiring. In working for Hendry County Schools, I come across many needy families. When that happens, I know I can count on United Way for assistance and referrals for them. This assurance makes me proud to be a campaign co-chair.”

Mr. Andy Tilton is the Director of the Water Resources Group at Johnson Engineering. He represents the company as engineer for the City of Clewiston and has served as the senior engineer for surface water on many of the firm’s roadway projects for Charlotte County, Glades County, Hendry County, Lee County Department of Transportation, City of Cape Coral, City of Fort Myers, Collier County, and the Florida Department of Transportation. He provides direction for monitoring, permitting, design and construction related issues. Andy has also worked on many mixed used developments, which range in size from 300 acres to about 18,000 acres, which are located in Charlotte, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties.

Andy has served as a volunteer for the Fund Distribution process for more than 13 years in Hendry and Glades counties; most of that time operating as a Team Leader. He has also previously served as a Campaign Co-Chair for Hendry and Glades, so he brings along the knowledge of running a successful campaign. Tilton says: “The reason I got involved with United Way is recognizing that they are a hardworking umbrella organization that lifts people up in their time of need. They encourage organizations to collaborate and work with each other to make the best use of the available funds. United Way is a good steward of the funds donor entrust to them.”

United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades has raised and distributed almost $200 million since established in 1957. Introduced into the Hendry and Glades area in 1999, all money raised in the United Way Hendry and Glades campaign stays in the Hendry and Glades communities to help support the local human service network. United Way Partner Agencies and initiatives include Hope Hospice, Sunrise Community Center, Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Clubs, and United Way 211, to mention a few. These agencies serve a diverse range of needs in our community such as nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, and meeting critical needs like helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods.

In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies and initiatives, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives.
