MFA Oil employees pledged to give $51,606 to four nonprofit organizations during the company’s annual Week of Giving campaign.
More than 170 employees contributed to the fundraising effort which ran from Oct. 29 through Nov. 2 in support of Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association, Children’s Miracle Network at MU Children’s Hospital, Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
“This is the second year we have extended the Week of Giving to all employees throughout the company, and it’s impressive to see how much good we can do collectively,” says Tom May, director of employee relations.
May is a member of the MFA Oil employee committee which annually organizes the Week of Giving. This year, the committee chose to focus the week’s fundraising efforts on charities that benefit children.
“There are many ways these organizations are helping kids in our communities through whatever trials they may be facing,” May says. “Whether it’s providing medical care, finding a home or simply ensuring kids have enough food to eat, these groups do tremendous work.”
Employees’ pledged contributions during the Week of Giving will result in the following donations:
- Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri – $16,445
- St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital – $15,451
- Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association – $9,857
- Children’s Miracle Network at MU Children’s Hospital – $9,852
Additionally, employees at the company’s headquarters helped to raise an additional $4,000 that will be split among the four charities through raffle ticket sales, a 50/50 drawing, concession sales and activities.
