United Way of Nevada County Workplace Giving Campaign Season Begins

United Way Workplace Giving Campaigns are starting all across the United States and locally. National businesses such as JC Penney, UPS, Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, Texas Instruments and AT&T started encouraging their employees to give back to the community through the United Way annual employee payroll pledge process recently. Local campaigns such as Telestream, County of Nevada, B &C True Value Home & Garden Center, the City of Grass Valley and The Union Newspaper generally start their employee giving campaigns and special events in the month of October.

Many businesses and government agencies across the county are participating in the United Way Employee Giving Campaign for the campaign year 2017-2018. Some of them also host events such as Soup-a-thons, Friday Jeans Day, and used book sales to raise money for United Way of Nevada County.  The money raised from events and the employee payroll pledge process goes into the local United Way Community Impact Fund, or employees can designate through payroll pledging to any specific 501(c)(3) non-profit of their choice. Learn More. For more information contact us at (530) 274-8111 or admin@uwnc.org.
