Faith Technologies Employees Team Up to Raise $17,000 for United Way
Company Employees Place Focus on Their Community Commitment for 6th Straight Year
Menasha, Wis. (May 9, 2012) – The employees of Faith Technologies, a full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor, place a strong focus on their commitment to the communities that they live and work in. Employees teamed together to raise more than $17,000 in support of the 2011 United Way’s Community Campaign. The United Way Community Campaign works every year to gather funds in support of the community’s most pressing needs and priorities in order to create lasting changes in community members’ lives.
The Faith Technologies’ United Way Campaign held special events and fundraisers at the home office, Appleton branch, Kansas City branch and Madison branch to raise money for the United Way, which focuses on community education, financial stability, ensuring people have access to basic needs and improving the lives of those with health issues. This was the sixth year that Faith Technologies participated in giving back to the United Way.
“We believe the most effective and efficient way to impact and benefit the communities in our entire company footprint is to partner with the United Way,” said Rollie Stephenson, Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to support an organization that’s aimed at making a significant difference in the lives of the local community members around us.”
The home office and Appleton branch worked on separate campaigns that included activities such as a campaign kick-off informational breakfast, chili potluck luncheon, a “sales” week for jeans day stickers and an ugly holiday sweater competition. The Kansas City Branch campaign featured competitive events such as a Minute-To-Win-it contest, poker tournament, chili cook-off, beanbag toss tournament and golf ball drop. The Madison branch took a food approach with their fundraisers, hosting a burger sale, ice cream social, pizza party, chili dog luncheon, breakfast sandwiches, Taco Tuesday, bake sale and pie toss event. Employees raised $12,000 and Faith Technologies made a company donation of $5,000.
