Congrats to Carl Laski for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: UnitedHealthcare
Honoree Category: Health
Why Nominated: Carl Laski championed efforts to collect items for the needy through his outstanding skills to organize and implement the highly successful Easter Basket Drive, Back Pack & School Supplies and Adopt a Family programs on behalf of UnitedHealthcare. Carl’s superior team building skills helped promote this worthy volunteer and giving opportunity to his peers, and his peers responded to his call. His success can be measured by the more than 400 Easter baskets that were collected and personally delivered to four local non-profit organizations including San Clemente Military Family Outreach, Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa and Boys & Girls Club of Cypress.
His efforts to encourage employee participation in the drive also resulted in UnitedHealthcare providing over 60 underserved families with food, clothing and other items during the December holiday season through an Adopt a Family Program. He also helped to assist some 1200 children to receive much needed school supplies including back packs, pens, paper calculators and pencils. He has been a true leader in our employee volunteer program for several years. His dedication is demonstrated through the successful results of his efforts.
“Carl’s ambitious goals to encourage and foster UnitedHealthcare employees to help support their local community makes him a unique member of the UnitedHealthcare family,” said Greg Siebert, 2011 Co-Chair, UnitedHealthcare of California Social Responsibility Committee. “His passion to serve truly inspires others to participate in helping others. His talents do not go unnoticed.”
Last year, Carl successfully encouraged several UnitedHealthcare employees to help volunteer and give back to the community by providing items that enrich their lives throughout southern California.
Carl Laski is an exceptional employee who graciously gives his time and talent to work to improve the overall health and well-being of the people in the local community. He is a shining example of UnitedHealthcare’s mission to help people live healthier lives and the Spirit of Volunteerism. His work is greatly appreciated.
