Gearing up for SPS Commerce United Way Campaign Week 2016

by | Oct 26, 2016

SPS Commerce is a little more than a week away from our 8th annual United Way campaign happening November 4-11, 2016.

Through our partnerships with various United Way organizations, all funds raised by each office go directly to our respective communities, building up the areas in which we live and work! Minneapolis gives to Greater Twin Cities United Way, Little Falls, NJ gives to United Way or Northern New Jersey and Passaic County, and this year, for the very first time, we welcome Toronto, CA to give to United Way of Peel Region.

But what’s fundraising without the FUN?! The theme for this years’ campaign is High School Homecoming – full of pride, excitement and dedication to SPS and our United Way partners! Employees are looking forward to a week packed full of fundraising, volunteer and thank you events – including an educational bingo event, a hands-on speed packing event to create care packages for the needy and the annual brew-off hosted in Minneapolis, where employees are incentivized to donate $150 or more to taste home brews created by their coworkers and collectively vote on the next ‘King of Beers’.

Year after year, team SPS bands together in creative ways to promote charitable contributions and make an impact in our communities. We’ve got yearbooks, an SPS cheer, mascots and more – ready to engage 1,000+ SPS employees in a crazy week of fundraising and fun! As employees, we are proud of where we work, the SPS blue we wear and the giving hearts we have. The 2016 SPS Commerce United Way campaign week is sure to be a success!
