Giving Back in The Community

United Way

United Way Logo

In addition to United Way fundraising barbecues, bake sales, chili cook-offs, and a silent auction, employees also give through a payroll deduction program where all contributions are matched by the company. We're very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish, together! $30,600 was raised for the local chapter of the United Way in 2015.
