In a story filed by WMC TV 5 reporter Joe Birch, United Way volunteer Shannon Brown was recently honored with a Crystal Award for his work to raise $25.7 million as General Campaign Chairman of United Way’s 2010-11 fundraising drive. You can read Birch’s story on the WMC TV 5 website here.
The Association of Fundraising Professionals presented the Crystal Award for Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser to Brown (Sr. Vice President / Chief Human Resources Officer at FedEx Express) in a ceremony at the University of Memphis shortly after Thanksgiving.
Brown led United Way of the Mid-South’s fundraising drive across our entire region last year, raising a tremendous amount of support for United Way during difficult economic times. He continues to supply volunteer leadership to the Mid-South as a member of the United Way Board of Directors.
