WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group on Tuesday announced its employees made a difference in 2011 by donating thousands of dollars to local and national charitable organizations.
The company has always had a strong emphasis on giving back to the community through donations and volunteerism, and offers employees multiple opportunities to participate in fundraising activities, such as casual days and potluck lunches. The HRG owners group believes in giving to organizations that employees are personally connected to and passionate about helping. Employees are encouraged to suggest organizations they would like considered and at the end of each year, everyone votes to decide how the money raised will be donated.
“We are fortunate to have generous employees who want to support organizations that are meaningful to their fellow associates,” HRG president Dawn Vogelsang said. “By providing fundraising opportunities that are fun to participate in, we not only give employees extra incentive to donate, it also brings us closer together as a company when we rally for a good cause.”
