As we kicked off our annual United Way Campaign this year, we also kicked off our internal workplace campaign. Generally ours includes raffles, games, and food to get things going, but this year we decided to tone all that down.

We sent out a company survey and everyone wanted less.

Why?

One of the employees here answered the question perfectly. “Why do we need incentives to donate? We work here, we believe in the cause – we don’t need any more reason to give.  If you don’t believe in what we stand for you shouldn’t be working here.”

We genuinely want to help the community, and as individuals we understand that we are also members of this community – we don’t just work at United Way, we live in this community. If we want to see a difference we have to be the ones to make it. That’s how we, at United Way of Buffalo and Erie County, LIVE UNITED.
