As a Pacesetter organization for the United Way of Saginaw County Campaign, Covenant HealthCare is setting the speed for this year’s United Way Campaign. Last year, Covenant employees personally donated more than $75,000 in pledges to the United Way and their designated agencies.
For this year’s campaign, Covenant HealthCare wanted to give employees the opportunity to donate not only monetarily, but also with their time and energy hosting three events.
Thursday, August 18, Covenant employees donated their time to wash cars for a cause. In the parking lot of the McNally House, in front of the Covenant HealthCare campus, employees washed cars in an effort to raise funds and awareness of the United Way campaign.
