The Spector Building in Sarasota, FL gains The United Way as a anchor tenant
The Sarasota Office of United Way Suncoast will soon be moving – albeit just down the street from where they have occupied offices since 1997. On June 18th, the nonprofit sold the building they have owned and occupied for 16 years at 1445 2nd Street in Downtown Sarasota. The United Way staff will continue to work from this location until later this summer.
Katie Knight, Sarasota Area President for United Way Suncoast, said it was important to the United Way board in Sarasota to remain in the downtown area. “We are moving just a few blocks down the street and have the opportunity to champion our work in the community from a new professional space that better meets our needs.” Knight also reported that United Way will remain co-located with the staff of United Way’s 2-1-1 – a three-digit call in number used to direct people in need to the appropriate community services.
“The new office is located on the first floor of the BB&T Financial Center and will be easily accessible to our volunteers and community partners,” offered Knight. “We want the office to be a resource to our community and will have adequate facilities for learning and collaboration.”
United Way Suncoast anticipates they will move to the new Sarasota office on or about September 1, 2013, in time for the launch of United Way’s 2013 community campaign season.
