Discovery Benefits, United Way Team Up to Help Communities
September 5, 2018
The United Way’s impact on our communities is immeasurable, yet the results are clear. The organization’s branches in Fargo and Brookings are on a mission to reduce hunger, homelessness, poverty and mental health issues. It’s an easy mission to get behind!
We set a lofty goal last year. Not only did we exceed it, but our employees’ efforts landed us in the top 10 of the United Way of Cass-Clay’s list of the most generous workplaces. So we increased our fundraising goal again for this year’s annual weeklong event in late August. And guess what? We eclipsed it again!
A dream week of giving
Our employees were swept up in a magical week of giving for our Disney-inspired campaign to support the United Way. The week included a number of events for employees to participate in during their morning and afternoon breaks, with proceeds from each going to the United Way of Cass-Clay and the Brookings United Way.
“The great thing with United Way is they focus on the community,” said Darin Lovin, who is a software education manager and a member of the United Way Emerging Leaders Committee. “Everybody at Discovery Benefits either knows someone impacted by the United Way or has been a part of one of the wonderful benefits that United Way has.”
