TruGreen_logoIn celebration of #GivingTuesday, TruGreen donated more than $95,000 to the United Way, with most of the contributions coming directly from employees. In three weeks, TruGreen employees donated more than $63,000, exceeding the $60,000 goal. The company matched 50 cents for every dollar donated, creating a total of more than $95,000 offered to the United Way in 2015.

“We have amazing employees at TruGreen and this recent fundraising campaign for the United Way once again proves it,” said TruGreen CEO David Alexander. “As an organization, we have created and fostered a culture of giving back, and our employees demonstrate that commitment by making positive impacts in the communities where they live and work. Every year, I’m thankful for the generosity of our team. This year we raised an impressive amount of funds in a few short weeks, which will directly support the good work the United Way is doing around the country.”

This is TruGreen’s second United Way campaign, which has raised more than $180,000 to support United Way’s mission of helping others in times of need. The United Way campaign is one piece in the company’s overall giving efforts, which include Service Days where employees do hands-on projects in the local community and the Lawn Stars program where TruGreen awards high-performing branches with a $2,000 donation towards any non profit of their choice.
