FAITH TECHNOLOGIES CHOSEN FOR TEAM OF THE YEAR IN 2014 UNITED WAY FOX CITIES COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN
Company labeled winner for employee contributions in large business category
Menasha, Wis. (Feb. 5, 2015) – Employees at Faith Technologies, a leading electrical and specialty systems contractor have proudly accepted the award for the Employee Campaign Manager Team of the Year in the large business category for their contributions to the 2014 United Way Fox Cities Community Campaign. United Way’s Community Campaign aims to not only collect funds to support community needs, but to enhance the common good in the future.
Faith Technologies is no stranger to successful United Way campaigns. In 2014, the company took a national stance by asking their employees, who are located throughout the country, to support their local United Way. Overall, employees contributed more than $47,000 in addition to a $25,000 corporate gift. In the Fox Cities alone, Faith Technologies experienced growth of more than 131 percent in employee contributions with a total donation of more than $41,000. The company’s leaders in the Fox Cities also increased participation by 150 percent, resulting in a donation of $10,828.00.
“As a company we are committed to the communities where we live and work, and partnering with organizations that give back – like United Way – ensures the best use is made of our donation dollars,” said Jim Totzke, executive vice president of operations. “This is our ninth campaign year, and it has been tremendous to see the continued growth and engagement of our employees and leadership team. It’s even more rewarding to be part of a larger community of givers. It’s a community effort, and together we can all make a difference.”
