Realityworks has supported the Christmas is for Children campaign every holiday season for the past four years. In 2017, enough funds were raised through a non-competitive giving drive to support the purchase of holiday gifts for 16 children. This year, the group hoped to raise a few hundred dollars by giving this annual drive a competitive spin; instead, it was announced that the employees had raised $2,615.98.
“Finding out how many kids we could sponsor was my favorite part of this event,” added Terri Lokken.
The Penny Wars competition drove so much more giving this year, that the 70-person Realityworks team will be able to support 74 local children.
“It was really impressive to be able to support so many kids this year, and I think everyone took a lot of pride in it,” said Tiffany Olek. “We didn’t expect it, but we ended up creating a huge impact and it was a great success!”
