WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group employees contributed nearly $10,000 to local charities in 2013, the company announced Thursday.
Not only did the company of 60 associates contribute to their community through workplace fund-raising activities, they also participated in several external volunteering efforts and activities. HRG teams organized auctions and book sales, among other internal events, to raise money for breast cancer awareness and men’s health. HRG associates also volunteered for public park and river clean-up efforts, joined run/walks, and put together a team for the Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour, benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“We have always placed a priority on giving back, but the last few years were more focused on fund-raising and we had gotten away from regular participation in community welfare events,” stated Dawn Vogelsang, HRG president and member of the owners group. “I’m glad to see this resurgence in ongoing external volunteering, and am very proud to continue our legacy of contributing to the causes that are most meaningful to our associates.”
