In just the first four weeks of The Homer Fund campaign, we have had over 13,000 new donors sign up and 68% of our associates company-wide are now donating to the Fund. That’s a great start, but we still have a lot of work to do before the campaign ends on May 31!
We are confident that this year’s campaign will end with more associates supporting the Fund than ever before. As an added incentive for our associates to give to the Fund, our CEO, Frank Blake, has issued a special challenge:
Currently, 84% of salaried associates are giving; if we increase that to 90%, Frank will donate $250,000 to The Homer Fund!
No other leader at the Company lives by the inverted pyramid more than Frank, and he is encouraging all salaried associates to respond to this challenge and join him in showing support of our hourly associates by giving to the Fund.
Signing up to donate is easy– just click the Donate tab on our website and choose your preferred method. You can enroll in automatic payroll donations, donate via credit card, or print out the contribution form to use with your one-time check donation. Completed contribution forms can be returned to your Homer Fund captain along with payment to be mailed to The Homer Fund.
Meeting Frank’s challenge will send a powerful message to all of our associates and reinforce our values of taking care of one another and giving back. During the campaign, you can track the progress of Frank’s Challenge each Monday by viewing the salaried participation reports.
