On Wednesday, December 10th, 2008, representatives from the charities were treated to a reception and presented with the collected gifts. Kempe received donations of children’s clothes, board games, and stuffed animals. All of the gifts together were valued around several hundred dollars. “All of the employees were very nice and excited to support Kempe. We’re grateful for their generosity,” says Beth Stefl, Kempe Development Coordinator. During the reception, the displays created by US Bank employees were judged and awarded and all attendees enjoyed meeting and greeting one another. Also, US Bank organized a contest drawing for the charities. The charity selected out of the drawing won $1000. With great surprise and excitement, Kempe was the winner of the prize.
Although budgets are tight this year, US Bank has continued to be champions in the community by providing a great holiday season to families less fortunate. Generosity is certainly alive and well and clearly a part of the company culture at US Bank. Kempe is appreciative and honored to have such great support.
