NCCI’s two-week United Way campaign raised more than $256,000 this fall, proving once again that NCCI’s more than 900 employees are fund-raising champions for their favorite cause. This year’s theme was “Get in the Game.”
The Boca Raton-based company, which gathers and analyzes workers compensation data for customers across the country, has supported United Way of Palm Beach County for more than 20 years.
In the spirit of this year’s theme, employees dressed in brightly colored team jerseys and participated wholeheartedly in campaign from games to companywide raffles. Raffle winners won airline tickets to anywhere in the United States; a weekend hotel-stay in Orlando; and gift cards to local restaurants.
Campaign monies will help United Way support more than 45 charitable programs in Palm Beach County. These include food banks, homeless and victims of abuse shelters, training for the unemployed, and guidance to achieve self-sufficiency.
Earlier this fall, NCCI hosted a “United Way Agency Forum” for more than 30 nonprofit organizations. The event provided an opportunity for the agencies to talk about their United Way supported programs, and enlist new NCCI volunteers.
NCCI is the nation’s largest repository of workers compensation information. The company’s mission is to foster a healthy workers compensation system. NCCI integrates socially responsible principles into the workplace and the community. For more information, visit www.ncci.com.
