When the team at United Stationers Supply Company plans for Customer Service Week they included some of their favorite things from past celebrations along with a few new ideas. One of the most popular recent additions, says Raechal Schneider, was the Pay it Forward Campaign.
“Our associates always come together and demonstrate what huge hearts they have,” she says, “that was again evident in all the donations we collected for three charities!”
Each day of the week had a different theme and activities including a 50s day, relaxation day, and formal wear day. On Tuesday associates dressed down in t-shirts supporting their favorite causes and throughout the week they brought in donations for three different groups.
By the end of the week the team had collected:
- Over $1,000 for Toys for Joy
- Hats, scarves, mittens, and gloves for more than 100 children
- Food and personal hygiene products for a local food pantry to supply over 50 families.
