Gorman Bros Lumber came up big in its United Way campaign this year.

The Okanagan lumber business, which started in 1951 and has not forgotten its role in the community, on Tuesday handed over a cheque for more than $60,000 to the United Way Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen division.

Employee donations came in around the $30,000 mark, and the business matched that total to take the total past the $60,000 mark. Gorman Bros Lumber donated the second most money among more than 110 businesses in the region.

“The United Way is an important partner that enables us to ‘give back’ in an organized and efficient manner ensuring the biggest impact for donated support,” Gorman Group co-CEO Nick Arkle said in a press release. “It is an expression of a community working together to ensure that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
