Donation brings United Way fundraising to 98 percent of its goal

Employees at the Hormel plant in Austin completed their 2017 fundraising campaign for the United Way of Mower County, raising $136,000.

Representatives from Hormel Foods Corporation and the United Way of Mower County met on Tuesday in the plant lobby to unfurl a banner commemorating the employees’ efforts.

“Fundraising is no easy task year after year, but the plant employees continue to be committed to the community through this effort,” said United Way of Mower County Executive Director Diane Baker. “They continue to be one of our strongest partners and this moves us closer to our goal and meeting community needs.”
