Freelin-Wade employees make a difference
Freelin-Wade Co. employees set a new record for charitable giving this year, raising $13,062 for the Give A Little Foundation. Each year a group called the Freelin-Wade Force hosts dozens of fundraising events for area charities. Among the 2010 events were monthly lunches, a Civil War Chili Cook-Off, a middle school dance, three silent auctions and a Hot Wheels tournament. In 2010, the Force concentrated all of its efforts on helping the Give A Little Foundation, which provides emergency grants to families in Yamhill County facing financial crisis. "Last December, when we kicked the year off, we said that our goals were to raise money and raise awareness for Give A Little," said Matt Schaffner, captain of the 2010 Freelin-Wade Force team. "I think we achieved both. I'm also pleased that we had a great time doing it. We held some fun events and virtually all of the employees and many in the community got involved." Congratulations to the whole team at Freelin-Wade.
