The focus for Marion Body Works this holiday season was set on helping local families in need. Marion’s goal is not only to be the employer of choice, but also to look for ways that directly impact and help those living in our community. This holiday season Marion was blessed with two opportunities to make a difference.
Annually, in December, Marion holds a raffle amongst the employees for an extra vacation day for each of the two winners. The focus of the raffle is to raise money to give to individuals and families in our surrounding community. Lots of employees participated in the raffle, not only for a chance to win, but also have their dollars make an impact. $1072 worth of raffle tickets were purchased by employees. Marion Body donated a match of $1072, and the Union, USW Local 2-790 matched 50%, or $536, for a total of $2680. All of the proceeds went directly to reaching those in need this holiday season.
Along with the raffle, Marion was looking for another way to partner with nearby families. Giving trees were placed around the office and shop for employees to purchase gifts for local boys and girls. Marion and the employees were blessed to shop for 23 kids that were selected from our giving trees this year.
Marion Body will continue to strive to be a community supporter in every way we can. Special thanks to all that participated this year.
Merry Christmas from the Marion Body Works Team!
