“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
- Winston Churchill
Goodwill is one of StuartCo’s nine core values, and while we work throughout the year to embody this value, one week each year is dedicated to a spirited and fun event in the name of fundraising and giving back to our local community.
During this week, StuartCo residents team up to raise money for organizations where communities are located, including the Twin Cities, La Crosse WI, and Omaha NE.
This year, funds raised were donated to:
- Simpson Housing (Twin Cities)
- New Horizons Center and Outreach (La Crosse, WI)
- Visiting Nurse Association (Omaha, NE)
Our on-site teams hosted a wide variety of events and activities geared toward putting the FUN in fundraising. We have listed just a few of the creative events below:
- Wine & Canvas Night
- Bake Sale
- Root Beer Float Bar
- Silent Auctions
- Dog Walking
- Spaghetti Dinner
- Pie the Staff
- Pancake Man Breakfast
- Nerf Hoop Team Challenge
And so much more!
We want to extend a big thank you to all of our Twin Cities communities and their wonderful creativity with these events—in total, our residents donated over $19,000 for three incredibly worthy organizations! With the match from StuartCo, our total donation is over $30,000
