Lee & Associates PNW Rallies to Support Hurricane Ian Victims

Christian Mattson, a Principal with Lee & Associates, has led the firm’s Pacific Northwest (PNW) response to Hurricane Ian victims by rallying its network to solicit financial donations and human capital support to assist with clean-up and rebuild operations. The effort was organized through the company’s CompassionateLEE program, of which Mattson is a Board Member.

“Philanthropy is important to me, which is why I’m so proud of my colleagues at Lee & Associates Pacific Northwest. I’m incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by people who share a love of philanthropy and foster the spirit of giving within our client base and at home,” said Mattson in a news release.

After the war in Ukraine broke out, CompassionateLEE raised over $19,000 in support of the Ukrainian people, and Mattson’s efforts helped the Pacific Northwest region contribute nearly 2/3rds of that total. In the Seattle/Tacoma area, Mattson is also a board member for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital and Health Network.
