An Annual Campaign, A Daily Need
MTD facilitates employee donations to the charity of their choice through United Way’s Champaign County Combined Charities Campaign (CCCCC). Our employees are given the option of donating one lump sum or donating in smaller amounts each paycheck throughout the year. They can chose one charity or half a dozen. MTD, along with 12 other governmental units, participate in the annual CCCCC.
There are over 500 charities in the catalog to choose from on the local, state, national, or international levels. There is so much MTD is thankful for and that’s why we love the Combined Charities Campaign and the opportunity to give back at the start of the holiday season. It’s simple for employees to participate and support the community we live in and serve.
We’re Doing it for Bill!
In honor of Bill Volk, MTD is dedicating this year’s Combined Charities Campaign to our Managing Director. Volk has been in this position since 1974 and is retiring on June 30, 2014. He has also been the Chairperson for CCCCC for several years. Because this is his last year serving as both Chairperson and the District’s Managing Director, we’re encouraging employees to Do it for Bill and donate generously!
“I’m particularly proud of the response from MTD employees in giving back to the community,” wrote Volk in an internal letter distributed today. “We’re able to put a roof over our heads, feed our families, and educate our children because of steady work and good paying jobs. It’s only right that we try to help others.”
In honor of our internal campaign kick-off, staff came in today at 5 am (the start of a new service day at MTD) to give out granola bars, donuts, and juice to operators and technicians starting or ending their day. It depends, of course, if they’re coming off a shift or just going on. This serves as a reminder that the time to renew their gift, or contribute a new one, has come.
Thank you for making MTD a valued part of the Champaign-Urbana community. What does your organization or business do to support area charities or causes? Share your story!
