Uniting for a Cause: Russell's 2023 United Way Campaign

Aligning with our core value of community, Russell’s Quad Cities team hosts an annual United Way fundraising campaign to support the vital work they do in the Quad Cities. Our 2023 campaign aimed to raise both funds and awareness for United Way Quad Cities, and we’re excited to share the incredible success and fun moments from this initiative.

United Way Quad Cities is committed to ensuring the success of students, promoting financial stability for struggling families, and cultivating an environment where all neighbors can lead healthy, happy lives. Employing a hands-on approach, they actively seek and fund solutions to break down barriers and uplift the lives of everyone in the community. United Way Quad Cities actively addresses critical issues facing the region, going the extra mile to ensure Quad Cities residents receive the support they need to build a stronger, more inclusive community for all.

The week leading up to Halloween, our team enjoyed an array of engaging fundraising activities, from the thrill of a dunk tank to the sweet treat of caramel apples. Halloween candy bar sales, trivia, bingo, dingle dangle donut, and other fun events kept the campaign week lively, all while raising money and awareness for United Way. Raffle baskets filled with donations from our community partners and guessing jars added an extra layer of excitement and a competitive edge.

In total, Russell raised $40,000 for United Way Quad Cities! This total comes from a combination of donations through pledges, special events, and a corporate donation. 

We’re proud to have partnered with local businesses in the community that generously donated gift cards and raffle baskets, serving as incentives and prizes for the various events held throughout the campaign week. The collaboration with our partners underscores the strength of our community bonds and the shared commitment to making a positive impact.

To maximize our support for United Way Quad Cities, we provided multiple avenues for contributions. Participants were encouraged to pledge donations either as one-time contributions or through paycheck deductions. Every contribution, big or small, played a crucial role in helping us reach our collective goal.

We invite you to join us in supporting United Way Quad Cities. Visit their website to explore how you can contribute, whether through a monetary donation or by volunteering your time. 

As our campaign concludes, we celebrate the funds raised along with the community spirit and values that define Russell. Thanks to all who participated; together, we’re shaping a brighter future.
