United Way of Lincoln County has announced that its first Eastern Lincoln County Campaign Chairman will be Bob Hecht, current CEO of Century 21 Hecht Realty Inc. in Denver.
Hecht will assist in providing awareness of what United Way does.
â€œI didnâ€™t realize what it supported at first,â€ Hecht said. â€œWhen they told me the rescue squad and pregnancy council I thought they were worthwhile things to support.â€
Hecht said that if he had realized before what United Way was all about, he would have gotten involved a long time ago.
His goal is to provide people with the information on what the organization does.
â€œI think that people need to decide who they do and donâ€™t support,â€ he said. â€œI think people should support their county.â€
Hecht has been involved in the Lake Norman area and has been part of the Optimist Club where he was a baseball and basketball coach. Currently, he is a member of the Lake Norman Rotary Club and is on the board of directors for the East Lincoln Christian Ministries.
