Tremendous growth is underway at JX Gives Back in so many ways.
From 2002 to 2018, our charitable donations have been a little over $500,000. In 2019, we are projected to make over $160,000 in Charitable, non-profits 501(c)(3) donations.
Our second annual Charity Golf Outing is scheduled for Monday, September 16, 2019. Registrations are strong and we are hopeful for another successful event. A highlight this year is that one of our Hole-In-One prizes will be a brand new Peterbilt Quad Axle Dump Truck valued in the $200,000 range!
Activity, specifically in the growth of JX Employees participating in bi-weekly payroll deductions has increased as well as engagement in submitting charities that merit our donation considerations.
As we approach 2020, we will have more focus on our Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program for employees to engage and participate in various charitable events and be paid for it.
Putting effort into growing our culture of Giving Back, I felt a great way to summarize our positive progress was by sharing a great picture. JX Gives Back Committee member, Sandy Kennedy from JX Truck Center Elmhurst shared a recent picture of her grand-kids: L/R Julien age 7 and Noelle age 5 Volunteering at Feed Our Starving Children campaign. What a terrific way to help plant the initial seed of Giving Back at an early age.
Give Back & Be Well.
