Brake Parts Inc. Raises Money for United Way
Jan. 27, 2016—On Tuesday, Brake Parts Inc. (BPI) announced that it raised more than $175,000 for the United Way of Greater McHenry during its annual campaign drive.
“Once again, BPI employees took our United Way partnership to heart and generously gave to support our local chapter, which funds 27 health and human service agencies in the McHenry area,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of BPI. “I can’t say enough about our employees and how proud I am that they rose to this year’s challenge and not only matched last year’s donation, but greatly exceeded it. This donation allows us to give back to the community to help better the lives of residents who depend on the United Way for assistance.”
BPI matched the money that was raised by employees through special fundraising projects, such as a silent auction, “Jeans Month” where employees paid to wear jeans to work, raffles, golf passes, a taco lunch sale, computer sale and brake sale.
