City of Pocatello Employees Donate Over $25,000 to United Way

Pocatello

‘Tis the season of giving and employees of the City of Pocatello reached into their wallets, pulling out more than $25,062.10 for the United Way of Southeastern Idaho.


The gift was collected as part of the group’s annual campaign that began in the fall. Workers were able to select a specific area of focus for their pledge such as “helping children and youth succeed,” “enriching senior’s lives,” and “increasing self-sufficiency,” and “promoting health, healing and safe communities.” They were also given the options to have the donation passed along to a certain non-profit organization or allow the United Way to direct the money where it was needed.


“I’d like to thank the employees of the City of Pocatello for their generosity,” said Brian Wellard, Campaign Manager and Sanitation Department Operations Supervisor. “Through their gifts, the lives of Pocatellans and East Idahoans will be improved.”


The average donation was $157.62 for the 159 employees who took part.


Employees were able to make the donation as a one-time gift or through bi-weekly payroll deductions. Last year, the effort was able to raise $24,562.52 for the United Way of Southeastern Idaho.
