Barnabus Coffee House in Chippewa Falls is a non-profit community service organization and outreach ministry. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, they serve a free community meal. Recently, Great Northern employees Jennifer Hawke, Sara Grana, and Tami Ressler decided to join them in giving back to our community.
Employees from our Chippewa Falls location volunteered their time this summer to help teachers and students get ready for school this fall. Members of the Great Northern Cares team donated packages full of supplies, including tissues, paper towels, permanent markers, tape, zip-lock bags and antibacterial wipes to six local elementary schools. Our 3M team was happy to donate sticky notes as well.
Our Great Northern Cares program is a way for Great Northern employees to give back to our communities through service and donation. The Chippewa Falls team recently used this program to benefit the Chippewa Humane Association by collecting over 100 items, along with a cash donation. Well done, team!
The United Way is an organization with which we’ve partnered for many years. Continuing this partnership is one way we support a shared future with our team members & our community.
