United Way Mission United recently hosted a dedication ceremony to honor Miguel “Mike” B. Fernández for his support of Mission United and his own service to our country in the United States Army. Fernández and his wife Constance have contributed more than $100 million to charitable causes, including an $885,000 gift to United Way Mission United. As members of Tocqueville Society and our Million Dollar Roundtable, they continue to be true leaders and an integral part of our United Way.
The dedicated flag monument represents liberty, strength, unity and pride, and adorns the front of the United Way Empowerment Building, facing Coral Way.
It also serves as a mark of completion of the community service building, which houses two of our United Way’s signature programs: Mission United, which helps veterans and their families re-acclimate to civilian life in meaningful and supportive ways; and the United Way Center for Financial Stability, which empowers working families by offering a full range of free services.
