Team Vogel vs. Cancer and the Winona Area Veterans Relief Fund to receive money raised by Miller employees.
Employees from Miller Ingenuity recently announced that $17,212 will be split among two organizations, Team Vogel vs. Cancer and the Winona Area Veterans Relief Fund, as part of the company’s annual Employee Charitable Giving/Volunteer Campaign. The employee-driven campaign, now in its fourth year, has raised over $52,000 to-date for local and national organizations selected through a company-wide survey, including Habitat for Humanity, Pickwick Community Park Project, American Red Cross, and the Children’s Miracle Network. Through employee donations, payroll deduction pledges, and a company match, the campaign saw an impressive 76% employee participation rate and an increase of nearly 30% over dollars raised last year.
“Our employees’ dedication to upholding our company values of teamwork, respect, integrity and community continues to inspire me,” said Steve Blue, CEO of Miller Ingenuity. “Congratulations to our team for breaking our annual campaign record! And my call to our community leaders is this: Making social responsibility a key tenet of your business’s identity could be the best decision you’ve ever made. Giving back to your community fosters a culture of goodwill, positivity, and community within your organization in addition to providing local organizations with the resources that they need to succeed. Let’s come together this year to make our mark on the community!”
