In August, Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation employees proved they were “Game On For Giving,” during the company’s annual United Way campaign. The campaign, which includes employee events and volunteer opportunities in the community is a much anticipated time of year for employees.
The campaign kicked off with service opportunities at five different local non-profit organizations in Nashville, Tennessee. Groups of employees spent a few hours of their work days giving back to their community by painting facilities, gardening, landscaping, filing and lending a hand to United Way partner agencies.
After seeing the impact United Way makes in the community, it was time to generate excitement for giving with a week of fun employee events at the office. This year’s campaign featured a sports theme, and events included a kickoff tailgate party, leadership investor event, 5k run and 1 mile walk, sports trivia, tricycle races, Bingo, ice cream social and a highly competitive lip sync battle, which proved to be the talk of the campaign.
The final numbers are in, and with a generous match from the Caterpillar Foundation, Cat Financial employees raised more than $674,000 for United Way, a campaign record! Congratulations to Cat Financial for demonstrating Caterpillar’s Values in Action. It takes a dedicated team of employees, a fan base of company leaders and a strong game plan to make a difference in the community.
Congratulations Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation!
