PEOPLETEC RAISES OVER $3,500 IN SUPPORT OF THE HUNTSVILLE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION HUNTSVILLE, AL – October, 2009
Congratulations to the PeopleTec fundraising team on their efforts to support the Huntsville Alzheimer’s Association. This cause was selected on behalf of PeopleTec as a way to give back and show support to those in need within our community. This proved to be a very meaningful charity as many have been touched by this devastating disease.
As part of the fundraising efforts, PeopleTec employees, family members and friends participated in the following:
Alzheimer’s Cookout: Friday, September 25, 2009 – PeopleTec pre-ordered brown bag lunches for various local companies. Lunches included hamburger or hotdog, soda, chips and dessert. Employees worked hard to prepare, package and deliver the lunches, and raised additional funds by selling individual homemade desserts.
Memory Walk: Saturday, September 26, 2009 at Joe Davis Stadium- 15 members of Team PeopleTec participated in the local Alzheimer’s Association annual walk to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
T-Shirts Sales: Orders were taken for Team PeopleTec shirts designed with the Alzheimer’s Association logo. Shirts were worn at the Memory Walk as well as other fundraising efforts.
Donation Jars were set around the office for collecting spare changes-every penny counts!
“Forget Me Knots” paper flowers and Awareness Bracelets were sold to honor a loved one or display support for the cause.
Social Networking efforts were also utilized in this campaign via Face Book and were instrumental in raising over a quarter of the total PeopleTec proceeds.
Through these efforts, PeopleTec not only met but EXCEEDED the original goal of $2K by raising a final amount of $3,545.15. Special thanks for all of the donations and to the volunteers who worked tirelessly for several months to ensure that our company is proudly represented within the community!
