Five Star Call Centers Exceeds United Way Campaign Goal
Thursday, November 2, 2017
For over 30 years, Five Star Call Centers has been heavily involved in participating and raising money for the Sioux Empire United Way and this year was no exception. Five Star’s employees set the bar once again in all statistics that they were hoping to, which includes a 13% increase in participation. The 152 Heart Club and Rising Heart Members contributed to raising $76,671.49 in this year’s campaign which goes towards improving lives of community members in the Sioux Empire area. Five Star’s 2018 goal was 139 Heart Club and Rising Heart givers and a total of $65,000.
Five Star Call Centers did many events to not only help boost the participation of team members, but also make it fun! During the ‘rally’ week, there were donuts, root beer floats, pizza, cheesecake, and a popcorn bar. Along with these tasty treats there was also a companywide drawing which involved prizes like a Nintendo Switch, an Amazon Echo, and Paul Schiller prints.
