Five Star Call Centers Wins Sioux Empire United Way Company of the Year Award
Wednesday, February 7, 2018
Members from Five Star Call Centers joined many other United Way donators and volunteers today at the Sioux Empire United Way's thank you lunch. The thank you lunch was more than having the opportunity to try out the scrumptious soups that were graciously donated by local Sioux Falls restaurants, however.
President of United Way, Jay Powell, and Campaign Chairman, Bob Thimjon had exciting news and statistics to share with the volunteers. The Sioux Empire United Way met the fundraising goal for the 23rd straight year which reached $10,060,011 on a goal of $10,057,891. More than 700 local businesses supported 89 programs to get adequate funding.
As well as sharing how the performance of the 2017 campaign went, awards were given out to businesses and individuals for the impact that they had last year. Five Star Call Centers ended up receiving the Sioux Empire United Way Company of the Year award in the 101-500 employee category. It was an honor to have received this award knowing all of the time, commitment, and courteous donations that employees of Five Star dedicated to the cause and making the community of Sioux Falls a better place.
