Novus supports St. Louisians in need with 2014 United Way Campaign
ST.LOUIS, Mo. (Oct.17,2014)—For the past 23 years, Novus International, Inc. has made contributions to the United Way of Greater St. Louis to benefit their programs in and around the St. Louis region. More than 90 cents of every dollar contributed to the United Way’s Annual Giving Campaign goes to services that help people in need, and the United Way enlists the help of volunteers to study community needs, evaluate programs and make strategic decisions about where donations are invested each year.
Since 2010, employees have contributed $633,730 to the campaign, including Novus matching donations. In 2013, donations totaled $94,865 and each year contribution amounts increase, allowing us to have a greater impact on our community. To reach our goal this year, we will host several events in October to encourage involvement. Today, October 17, Novus is hosting a golf tournament at the Missouri Bluffs Golf Club, along with a bike ride along the riverfront of St. Charles and an employee trivia tournament. The campaign finale will be next Friday, October 24, and will include a bake-off fundraiser.
“From my experience, giving through the United Way allows me to have the greatest community impact. United Way does what no other organization can – it brings us together as one community to strengthen dozens of local health and human service agencies that provide assistance to those in need,” said Jeff Klopfenstein, Novus International’s President of the Methionine Business Unit.
More than one million people receive services in our community through 170 locally supported health and human service agencies affiliated with the United Way. We believe that the strength of our business lies in the strength of our communities, which is why Novus maintains a long tradition of involvement and support for the communities in which we live and serve.
