Lynne Cameron has 40 years of experience in the media and public relations with an emphasis on community and the environment. For the past 27
years, she has been the Executive Director of Neighbors 4 Neighbors, a South Florida non-profit organization founded in partnership with South Florida’s CBS television station in 1992. Using a combination of resource development, collaboration with service providers and the power of media, Ms. Cameron has built an organization to empower our neighbors to use the talents, time and money they have to help others. She was instrumental in creating an award-winning volunteer matching website, Helpingfeelsgood.org that connects the everyday skills of our neighbors with hundreds of nonprofit organizations.
Under her leadership, Neighbors 4 Neighbors has responded to local, national and international disasters, coordinating donations, volunteers and funding. With a network of resources and experts from government, the private sector and non-profit organizations, Ms. Cameron has mobilized efforts for families in crisis through her strong partnership with CBS4, and local media. “The power of media to motivate human kindness is extraordinary," says Cameron. Building collaboration and partnerships is her specialty. Her efforts have resulted in a one of a kind program that connects those in need with those who can help on a daily basis.
Prior to joining Neighbors 4 Neighbors, Ms. Cameron had a long history in media and public relations. Her focus during that time was on the arts and environment, and her work on behalf of Biscayne National Park was recognized when client Herbert W. Hoover Jr. received the first Take Pride In America Award. Her work has been recognized through numerous national, state and local awards. Among them, the National Association of Broadcasters Service To America Award, The Governor’s Hurricane Conference Award, the Public Relations Society of America’s Golden Palm Award, the Governor’s Emmy Award for Community Service, The Claude Pepper Memorial Award for Media Service, and Most Valuable Protector Award from Voices For Children.
