Aladdin Travel Receives United Way Spirit of North Carolina Award 

United Way of Forsyth County recently announced that Aladdin Travel has been awarded the Spirit of North Carolina Award. The Spirit of North Carolina Award recognizes business and other organizations that are leading their communities in embracing a united spirit of giving and volunteering that extends beyond the traditional United Way campaign season. The Award was presented by United Way of North Carolina at its Spirit of North Carolina Award Luncheon in Greensboro on February 17.

Winners were selected based on seven “standards of excellence.” They have not only demonstrated excellence in their United Way campaign but also a strong philanthropic culture and community partnership. In addition to campaign participation and donations received, winning organizations received high marks for their overall organizational volunteer culture, including collaborative work with United Way as well as other organizations in the community; the benefit their employees receive from involvement in the community; and the role their leadership plays in promoting a culture of philanthropy and community support.

“The Spirit of North Carolina Award captures the collective, hands-on partnerships United Way of Forsyth County is building with our supporters,” said Cindy Gordineer, President and CEO. “We are honored to have Aladdin Travel as a key partner in making our community a place where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
