United Way’s in Northeastern PA express gratitude for P&G – Mehoopany
Raising $401,828 ($15,850 of which from retirees), a 71.5% employee giving rate, and 331 leadership givers, it’s easy to see why P&G – Mehoopany stands as a role model for employee United Way campaigns in Northeastern PA.
P&G Mehoopany’s $401,828 from generous employees will benefit 6 area United Way’s including: United Way of Bradford County, United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties, Sullivan County United Way, United Way of Susquehanna County, United Way of Wyoming Valley and Wyoming County United Way.
For seven straight years in a row, P&G – Mehoopany has increased their local contributions. 2016 saw a 10% increase in leadership giving – with an average employee gift of $210 – and an additional $13,000 more than last year to support area United Way’s.
United Way officials in all northeast PA regions were on hand Wednesday to show their appreciation and offer thanks during a P&G leadership luncheon.
P&G will also match the employee donations with another $135,000 in corporate contributions, making the campaign total exceed $535,000
