United Way 2019 Recap
Improving the quality of life in our community is one of our top values at Russell. One way we demonstrate this is through giving back to United Way. This year we once again had an incredible campaign and were able to exceed last year’s numbers. This year, our grand total between pledging, special events and a corporate donation was $39,901.62, exceeding last year’s total by almost $5,000! A majority of 2019′s grand total came from pledges made by Russell employees, amounting to a 72% participation rate, and the remaining came from special event fundraisers such as music trivia, progressive dinner party and a breakfast served by Russell executives. Additionally, Russell had more than a dozen employees participate in United Way’s Day of Caring where they spent the day cleaning, setting up and tearing down exhibits at the Putnam Museum in Davenport.
Russell is proud to make an impact on our community through organizations like the United Way. To learn more about United Way, please visit their website.
