AgCarolina Farm Credit recently donated $2,000 to the UNC Children’s Hospital.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the third quarter was the UNC Children’s Hospital. Fifty-six employees participated in the campaign for a total of $1,400. AgCarolina Farm Credit management made the decision to donate $600 for the total $2,000 donation.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit prides itself in our commitment to being an active part of our community,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter was the idea of one of our employees, and we have had a great amount of success with the campaign so far this year. We encourage all of our employees to take an active role in making NC a great place to live and work.”
