Employee Giving Campaign

Each year The Wesley Foundation holds its popular Employee Giving Campaign. The campaign is an opportunity for employees to donate to one of several funds that benefit other employees and Wesley residents.

Employee Giving Committee and Foundation Board Member Tara A. Pleat display the final total raised. From L to R: Katelynn Donovan, Angie Scripter, Tara A. Pleat, Kati Squires and Kelly Macfarlane.

Throughout the campaign there were fun events, topped off by this year's Halloween-themed Employee Giving Thank You Party.  The party featured its popular annual pie eating contest. This year's champion was Maria Battisti, who beat defending champion, Jessica Fretto, and others. What wonderful sports!

The pie eating contest participants, complete with Halloween costumes. From L to R: Shelly Amato, Sandra Redding, Maria Battisti (champ), Jessica Fretto (defending champ), and Sharon O'Sullivan.

Wesley's employees outdid themselves with a record $26,200+ in donations! Thank you to all of our generous employees!


Throughout the month of November you may notice the hashtag #GivingTuesday popping up online and elsewhere. Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a day of charitable giving inspired by shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, instead of celebrating with sales and bargains, #GivingTuesday marks the start of the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

In addition to monetary donations, there are many ways one can take part in #GivingTuesday. Giving your time, talents or skills can also make someone's Holiday Season a bright point in the year. For more information and ideas on giving to The Wesley Foundation, please click here.
