2012 Recipient – May Oberfell Lorber
May Oberfell Lorber was indeed the cornerstone as PHMEF was ready to build successful corporate partnerships in our community by becoming the first Corporations for Education partner. In 2007, as a result of its desire to make a difference in the educational opportunities for students in P-H-M schools, May Oberfell Lorber made a generous donation and multi-year commitment to the Foundation to establish a reading program at Walt Disney Elementary school – its neighbor to the east. In addition to helping young students strengthen their reading skills, May Oberfell Lorber helped the Foundation strengthen our ability to fulfill its mission. The firm’s demonstration of commitment to education in our community and confidence in the work of our Foundation served as a catalyst to other area businesses. CFE now has five corporate partners and two corporate team members.
May Oberfell Lorber’s contributions to to PHMEF are truly exceptional, and its involvement has had a substantial impact on the growth and impact of the Foundation.
We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership and are glad to have this opportunity to publicly thank them for all they have done and continue to do for PHMEF.
