Through this annual fundraising event, employees raised $11,789, setting a new all-time record since the inception of this fund drive in 2011. SupplyCore matched the amount raised, bringing the grand total of money donated to $23,578. Recipients of the donation include Rockford MELD, RAMP, and the Veterans’ Drop-In Center in Rockford.
Earlier today during a special ceremony at SupplyCore corporate headquarters in downtown Rockford, SupplyCore representatives presented each agency with a check in the amount of $7,860. SupplyCore President and CEO Peter Provenzano, a longtime supporter and advocate for the greater Rockford community, promotes a company-wide culture of giving and voluntarism.
“SupplyCore is dedicated to our role as a responsible and active corporate citizen of the greater Rockford region,” Provenzano said. “Our associates dedicate thousands of hours of volunteer time both through our company and in support of their personal passions outside of work. We are a stronger company because of our associates’ commitment to giving and to our community.”
Associates raise money for various causes throughout the year, and this particular fundraiser – which involved associates donating and bidding on auction items – dates back to 2011. The event, organized by SupplyCore’s Activities Committee, included items generously donated by local, Rockford-area merchants.
