Rockford, IL, June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SupplyCore Inc., a supply chain and technology integrator, donated $30,860 to local non-profit organizations today after a successful fundraiser.
Through this annual fundraising event, employees raised $15,430, setting a new all-time record since the inception of this event in 2007. SupplyCore matched the amount raised, bringing the grand total of money donated to $30,860. All proceeds will be donated to four not-for-profit organizations, including Youth Services Network, RAMP, Walter Lawson’s Children’s Home, and the Veterans’ Drop-In Center in Rockford.
Earlier today during a special ceremony at SupplyCore corporate headquarters in downtown Rockford, SupplyCore representatives presented each agency with a check in the amount of $7,715. SupplyCore President & CEO Peter Provenzano, a longtime supporter and advocate for the greater Rockford community, promotes a company-wide culture of giving and voluntarism.
“SupplyCore is proud to be an active corporate citizen of the greater Rockford region,” Provenzano said. “Our associates are community-minded, generous, and passionate about volunteering. Though SupplyCore matches the auction amount raised, this event is 100% driven by our associates which makes it even more satisfying.”
