Grinnell Mutual gives record donation to United Way campaign

Grinnell Mutual employees and matching funds from the Grinnell Mutual Group Foundation raised a record amount — nearly $125,000 — in pledges and contributions during the company’s 2018 United Way fundraising campaign in October.

“We have great employees at Grinnell Mutual. Their long-standing support of the local United Way campaign reflects their generosity and compassion,” said Grinnell Mutual president and CEO Jeff Menary.

Funds from the campaign will be distributed to several different community United Way, United Funds, and Community Chest organizations where Grinnell Mutual employees live.

Director of Advertising and Community Relations Barb Baker said, “We set a high goal this year and exceeded it by about $25,000. Our annual United Way fund drive resonates with many of our employees who generously support their communities. We are very proud that our employees are passionate about helping their neighbors.”
