The Roundup -

How Creative is Your Company?


Over the past several years, businesses and individuals alike have been very generous and supportive in giving back to their community. The Salvation Army is serving more people in the United States than ever before. Each year they are seeing large increases in the number of Americans seeking the basic necessities of life, food, shelter, and warmth. Approximately 30 million people received help from The Salvation Army last year alone.

The Salvation Army provides the following services, rehabilitation, elderly services, missing persons, hunger relief, Christmas assistance, youth camps, housing and homeless services, emergency and disaster relief, ministries, and so much more.

These assistance programs wouldn't be possible without your support. This holiday season look for unique ways to raise funds that will benefit our local Salvation Army. Employee contribution with company match. Boost employee morale by holding various fun events such as "Wear red on Fridays to support the Salvation Army." Each employee could pay a certain dollar amount to wear red. Do you work for a company or organization where business attire is required?  If so, jeans day fundraisers that benefit the Williston Salvation Army are a great way to boost morale, dress comfortably and help those in need in our community.

If your company already allows you to wear jeans every day, consider dressing up in different themes on Fridays, or coming up with another way to change clothes and change lives.

The list is endless. So, how creative is your company? Email me at [email protected] with details and photos on what your business or organization is doing this holiday season to raise money for The Salvation Army. You can also contact Kristin Oxendahl at 701-572-2921 for more information and resources to get you started.
