Supporting United Way
Not only did BankChampaign once again have 100% employee participation in the 2016 United Way campaign, there was an 8% increase in giving over the amount donated in 2015. One of several rewards for employees who contributed was a rare opportunity to have a jeans day at work, which was combined with the bank’s Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Day for a little added fun. The winner of the sweater contest won a $50 gift card of their choice, and $50 was donated to that employee’s favorite charity.
