WPX Energy Runs a Successful United Way Campaign
WPX Energy raised $10,450 for the United Way of Susquehanna County’s 2014 Community Campaign. The funds were the result of a combination of employee pledges, corporate-matched gifts, a breakfast burrito fund-raiser and cookie sales inside the company’s Northeast Pennsylvania offices.
“At WPX, giving back to the communities where we live and work lies at the heart of who we are as a company and as individuals,” said Ralph Hill, WPX Energy president and CEO. “The United Way campaign is just another way for us to show our company pride and spirit.”
More than 86 percent of WPX’s Northeast Pennsylvania staff supported this year’s United Way campaign.
“Most of our employees in Northeast Pennsylvania are from the area, so they have seen the work of many agencies supported by United Way of Susquehanna County,” said Scott Miller, WPX community relations representative. “Giving through the United Way provides employees the flexibility to support specific initiatives if they want, or to put funding decisions in the hands of the local United Way’s very capable committee.”
“WPX Energy ran a model campaign and we are extremely grateful for their support. Their management team and all of their employees understand that it takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. We are proud to have WPX as a partner and we can’t thank them enough for their commitment to improving lives in Susquehanna County,” said Kim Merithew, United Way of Susquehanna County, Director of Corporate and Community Giving.
The 2014 campaign is still on-going. Any individual or organization that would like to make a pledge is asked to call 570-465-3868.
