During the month of October, Federated Insurance employees participated in an internal, company-wide, giving campaign to support the United Way. This year, generous employees pledged more than $277,000 to the United Way.  

“Federated has a longstanding partnership with the United Way and promotes a commitment to giving each year,” said Peng Olson, community relations manager at Federated Insurance and a member of its United Way corporate campaign team. “It was humbling to see all of our employees rally together — giving their time and resources — to help the United Way in their quest to Recover. Reimagine. Rebuild.” In addition to employee pledges, Federated Insurance made a $97,000 corporate donation for a total of $374,000 to be distributed to United Way agencies across the country.

Using a network of employee volunteers to serve as coordinators makes it possible to facilitate efforts during the annual campaign. These generous individuals assist with educating co-workers, raising awareness for United Way programs, and coordinating the distribution and collection of donor forms.

“I am constantly amazed and so proud of our employees,” said Jeff Fetters, chairman of Federated Insurance. “Their support during this year’s campaign demonstrates their compassion, generosity, and commitment to helping address the immediate and long-term needs of local individuals and their families.”

Approximately $304,000 will stay locally in Steele County to help fund critical programs.

“Time and time again, when it comes to impacting the lives of people in our communities, Federated is right there, doing whatever it takes,” said Annette Duncan, president, United Way of Steele County.  “They have a genuine desire to do good, and we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to partner on so many levels with this amazing organization each year.”
