FRENCH CAMP — Health Plan of San Joaquin employees have contributed a combined $37,392 for the just-ended 2016 United Way campaigns in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.
“Much of this always comes from office fundraising drives, everything from barbecue and bake sales, a silent auction and wear-your-jeans-to-work-days,” said HPSJ External Affairs Vice President David Hurst, a member of the United Way of San Joaquin County board of directors. “In addition to the fun engagement activities, most of the support comes from ongoing contributions that employees designate from their pay checks – one of the very best kinds of personal philanthropy.”
The contributions bring Health Plan of San Joaquin employees’ total contributions over the past 18 years to $395,000.
HPSJ employees in French Camp raised $29,492 during the 2016 campaign, while HPSJ’s Modesto-based employees raised $7,926. HPSJ recently expanded its Modesto presence in Stanislaus County; this was the first United Way/HPSJ employee team effort in Modesto.
