Valpak Saves Donates $35,000 to Charity
We recently challenged our franchise employees to “save something” in their communities with Valpak Saves. Twenty-two Valpak offices from across the U.S. and Canada logged hundreds of volunteer hours during this monthlong community outreach contest. We planted trees, we fed the homeless, we mentored kids, we collected trash – we made a difference!
Valpak Saves was an opportunity to benefit worthy causes, to build relationships within our communities and offices and to earn a chance to win up to $20,000 for the nonprofit of our choice. Please join us in congratulating the contest winners:
Valpak of Indianapolis
$20,000 to Salvation Army and other charities
Indianapolis truly embodied the spirit of Valpak Saves, volunteering more than 170 hours with nine nonprofits and helping to raise over $100,000 (not including the $20,000 donation!).
