Jeppesen Finance puts their pennies together to buy books
As a way to support "Reading is Fun Week" and to create a fun competition between colleagues, the five Finance functional groups were given a challenge to raise money for the literacy organization "One Book 4 Colorado." The teams had one week to collect change, and the winner of the challenge would be the team with the heaviest donation and would win a team breakfast.
In just five business days, the teams collected 151.25 lbs. for a total donation of $559.62! The donation was so heavy they overwhelmed the change counter machine at the bank. We know the Finance team knows a thing or two about money; now their good deed will go to buy some good reads for some very special children in need.
