On January 23, 2013, the United Way of Portage County recognized the Associated Bank Service Center in Stevens Point at their United Way of Portage County Recognition Luncheon held at the Holiday Inn and Convention Center in Stevens Point.

The Stevens Point Service Center colleagues were recognized with the Best Campaign Coordinator Team Award for the United Way’s 2012 campaign.

Colleagues were also recognized with three additional awards. The $100,000+ Club Award recognizes corporations with corporate and employee gifts of over $100,000, the Gold Employee Campaign Award recognizes an employee gift average of $3 of more per week ($156 per year), along with the Large Employer Gold Award.

Jennifer Fox and Renee Carlson were the coordinators and Jean Jakusz and Dennis Schenk were the co-chairs of the 2012 campaign at the Stevens Point Service Center. They raised $127,640 and had 89% colleague participation.

“Thank you to all the colleagues at the service center who participated in the various events and fundraisers, such as basket sales, car washes, and much more,” said Jennifer Fox. “Without their participation and enthusiasm, we could have never achieved raising $127,640.”

“Jennifer and Renee are very deserving of the United Way’s Best Campaign Coordinator Team Award as they worked tirelessly to lead a very successful 2012 campaign,” said Lorraine Avery, Senior Vice President, Director Customer Service. “I look forward to them continuing in these roles as co-chairs for the 2013 United Way campaign.”
