United We Care campaign full of fun and generosity

Giving to United Way is part of ATC’s commitment to the communities we serve. We just completed this year’s United We Care campaign, raising a total of $214,468, including employee pledges, special event fundraising and company match. This was a 16 percent increase over last year’s campaign. Working together with United Way, we are happy to support programs that make our communities stronger, safer and more united.

We owe the success of the campaign in part to the fun events employees planned to help raise awareness of the campaign.

Our De Pere employees set up a United We Care mini-golf course in the office for a one-day event that included employee hole sponsors and great prizes. Employees, and some of their family members, got creative to make it challenging, building obstacles into the course like an aerial saw in a transmission-line right-of-way.

We brought back our United Way Throwdown bag-toss tournament and United Way Trivia Jam. Both games take place companywide with teams at each office across our footprint holding preliminary rounds. The winning teams played final rounds in the Pewaukee headquarters at the campaign closing celebration.

In Madison, employees brought delicious fixings for a taco bar lunch to raise funds. And our Cottage Grove employees used their backyard basketball hoop for a ‘Round the World basketball challenge and food drive to benefit Second Harvest.

The spirit of giving and the camaraderie generated during the campaign were a genuine reflection of our campaign theme, United We Care.
