Nov 9, 2016
Nov. 8, 2016 — For the ninth consecutive year, Nestlé Purina and its associates have raised more than $1 million for United Way of Greater St. Louis’ annual campaign. Nestlé Purina has supported United Way in its hometown of St. Louis for more than 50 years.
Steve Degnan, Purina United Way Campaign Chairman and Vice President of HR said: “Nestlé Purina is proud to serve the needs of communities where we live and work, and our commitment to United Way is deeply integrated in our culture. Not only do we run a large campaign out of our headquarters to benefit United Way of Greater St. Louis every year, but our manufacturing sites across the country also run campaigns for local United Way chapters in their communities.”
The support from generous individuals and corporations like Nestlé Purina allows United Way to invest more than $1 million each week within the St. Louis region to help one in three people in the community create a solid foundation for a good quality of life through education, financial stability, health, basic needs and strong communities. The money raised for the local campaign stays in the 16 Missouri and Illinois counties United Way of Greater St. Louis serves: St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles, Jefferson, Franklin, Warren, and Lincoln in Missouri; Calhoun, Green, Macoupin, Jersey, Madison, Clinton, St. Clair, Monroe and Randolph in Illinois.
