Brock Participates in United Way Activities
MILFORD, Indiana, U.S.A. — Brock Grain Systems recently participated in The Big Give book drive and United Way Week to benefit United Way of Kosciusko County and the Milford, Indiana, area. During the months of August and September, 2018, Brock employees took place in a variety of activities and fundraisers as part of these events to help those in need in area communities.
In August, Brock participated in The Big Give, a book drive with the goal of gathering a total of 6,000 gently used children’s books. CTB employees contributed 335 books to The Big Give, helping United Way exceed its goal with over 11,000 books donated to the cause.
During the week of September 17-21, Brock also took part in the annual United Way Week, with this year’s theme being, “You Can Be a LIFESAVER When You Give to United Way.” Throughout the week, Brock employees made 1,100 hygiene kits to be distributed to men, women, boys, girls and infants in Kosciusko County. Brock also created 100 comfort kits, containing blankets, stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons, which area firefighters use to help comfort children during emergency situations. Additionally, Brock assembled four teams to take part in a dodgeball event, which helped raise a total of $612 for United Way. A gift of new dodgeballs was also given to Milford Middle School and Baker Youth Group at this time.
“Brock employees showed tremendous heart with their United Way campaign this year,” said Erin Syslo, director of development for United Way of Kosciusko County. “United Way is deeply grateful for our ongoing partnership with Brock Grain Systems.”
Jack Stambaugh, Vice President and General Manager for Brock, added, “We’re honored to have the privilege of helping the wonderful organizations in our area, such as United Way of Kosciusko County. And we’re extremely proud to have caring employees who show dedication not only to helping those in our communities, but also serving our company’s larger purpose of ‘Helping to Feed a Hungry World.’”
