United Way of Brevard 2023 Campaign – Lotane & Associates strives to lead by example by creating an impact in our community. Our team is a proud partner with United Way of Brevard.

We run a campaign each year with a week full of events to educate and encourage giving back to the community and the 44 local agencies supported by our United Way. This year we were able to raise over $3,600!

Junior Achievement Classroom Visit – Lotane supports Junior Achievement by providing opportunities through Junior Achievement Internships, hiring high school students to learn and gain experience in a professional environment.

United Way of Brevard 2022 Campaign – As we do every year, Lotane conducted a campaign to raise funds for the United Way of Brevard, where 88% of our employees pledged funds to this wonderful organization.

This amounted to nearly $19K. We also raised nearly $3,400 via our special events, including the All-American Cookoff, scratch offs, BINGO, and 50/50 raffles.

These dollars are stretched far beyond their initial value thanks to matching programs with state and federal dollars, which help to enrich the lives of those members of our community who most need it.

The Great Brevard Duck Race – While charitable giving is a reward in and of itself, our company was thrilled to have come in 2nd place in Crosswinds Youth Service’s annual duck race! Our 360 adopted ducks swam with gusto, and in doing so helped Crosswinds in their mission to provide emergency shelter, food, and mentorship opportunities to at risk youth in Brevard county.

Jingle Jet 2021 – Christmas is a magical time of year, but for many it can be a very trying time. Some families are facing challenges that are nearly insurmountable, and want nothing more than to allow their children to still feel the magic of Christmas.

The Zazza Community foundation spends all year planning to make that happen for as many children and families as it can every year. Lotane donated throughout the year during the Jingle Jet radio drives, and volunteered to make the final event happen by wrapping gifts, setting up decorations, serving food and more. This is one of the most heart warming charities we participate in.

Meals on Wheels – Lotane and Associates is proud to have partnered with Aging Matters in Brevard by adopting a meals on wheels route in order to provide fresh hot meals to seniors in our community! Monday through Friday, our employee volunteers have the pleasure of providing not only a hot meal to someone who needs it, but also a quick wellness check and a human interaction that can be rare and vital for some of our aging neighbors. The seniors on our route have quickly become members of our family, and we’re very happy to be serving them.

Sharing Center of Brevard – We were humbled to volunteer and make a difference in Brevard during our 2021 United Way campaign.

We sorted and organized food in preparation for the pantry to fill bags and distribute to those coming to the Sharing Center of Central Brevard. We were able to empty 5 huge food containers in the warehouse when the guy who usually works in this area usually does one bin per day.

Enduring the heat was well worth it knowing those in need are picking up grocery bags to feed their families!

Children’s Hunger Project – In 2 simple hours, we were able to pack 1,000 food packs for our community! Imagine the impact!

The Children’s Hunger Project reported they were used to helping 2,400 kids per week which has risen to over 6,000 since mid-March due to COVID-19 impacts. They now have 3 mobile units where food can be picked up!

What an amazing experience! They had a goal of 800 and their highest was mid 600’s for 2 hours.

LA exceeded their expectations and set a record! We will do this again!
