SCHOFIELD – Greenheck Group team members raised $28,000 in June to help fight hunger in communities across the country.
The campaign, organized by the Greenheck Group Women’s Network, was initiated as a way to continue to live the company’s values during the pandemic.
“We are a group of people who love to volunteer and help fill the need within our communities,” said Amanda Irwin, senior financial analyst and treasurer of the Greenheck Group Women’s Network. “This fundraising campaign was a way for our employees to join together and make an impact while COVID-19 social distancing guidelines are in place.”
Each of the seven states in which Greenheck Group is located chose a nonprofit specific to the area. In Wisconsin, the team chose to support The Neighbors’ Place, which provides a food pantry to residents of Marathon County.
Other organizations benefiting from the campaign include:
· California – Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services
· Kentucky – Emergency Community Food Pantry of Franklin County
· Minnesota – Feed My Starving Children
· North Carolina – Cleveland County Nutrition Council, Lunchbox Ministries
· Oklahoma – Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
· Tennessee – Golden Age Senior Citizens Center
