At the end of 2019, the JBS USA Worthington, MN, pork team shattered their one-year-old record for giving to the United Way of Nobles County. The facility announced it was making a $167,496 pledge for the agency’s 2020 fundraising campaign, representing a 9.1% from the $153,544 donated by team members in 2019.
United Way of Nobles County’s fundraising goal for 2020 is $200,000. The pledge by JBS USA Worthington employees brings the total donations within 9.5% of the goal. 70% of the total JBS pledge was contributed by line workers.
Safety administrative assistant Cindy Elsing, who has managed the JBS USA Worthington United Way program for more than 20 years, expressed special gratitude to JBS team members.
“None of this is possible without them,” Elsing said. “I can’t begin to thank these employees for their donations, their support. They give to our community because they’re a part of our community.”
