Grinnell, Iowa (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
For the second consecutive year, employees gave more than $37,000 in pledges and donations during Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company’s annual United Way fundraising campaign this fall.
“We have great employees at Grinnell Mutual. Their support of the local United Way campaign reflects their generosity and compassion,” said Grinnell Mutual’s President and CEO Larry Jansen. “This is another reason why I am so proud to lead this great company!”
“Grinnell Mutual staff members show extreme generosity in supporting their respective communities,” said Barb Baker, manager of advertising and community relations at Grinnell Mutual.
Funds from the campaign will be distributed to 27 different communities where Grinnell Mutual employees reside. Additionally, the Grinnell Mutual Group Foundation provides matching funds on behalf of the company, nearly doubling the impact of donations made by employees, which exceeded the goal of $36,000. Employees have increased their giving 10 percent over the past three years.
“We are pleased to support our employees and their generous efforts toward the organizations that benefit from United Way,” said Baker.
