There is more to the employees of Chappell Central than just knowledge of HVAC Systems and Metal Fabrication. They also know the value of helping their local community and even how to throw a bowling ball.
On Thursday, September 29th, 2011 the employees of Chappell Central and their families gathered at the Kandi Entertainment Center in Willmar, MN for some bowling and pizza. In a bowling challenge between the Trott Avenue manufacturing employees and the Gorton Aveneue HVAC and office employees, the Trott Avenue staff proudly made more strikes and spares. But even though the Trott team won in bowling, everyone there were champs, because the event has a much bigger goal in the end.
The bowling event was also part of a Kick-off for Chappell’s Annual United Way Campaign, where employees pledge how much they will give to the local West Central Minnesota United Way from each paycheck. This commitment of Chappell Central employees is something to be proud of, especially considering that they started giving to United Way over twenty years ago when the company had only about 30 employees, and now the company is 65 employees strong.
So far In 2011, the team at Chappell Central has donated $3,297.00 collectively. But the goal for 2012 is set even higher. Renee Nolting, Executive Director of the West Central Minnesota United Way expressed her gratitude, “Thanks to the donors at Chappell Central and other generous donors in West Central Minnesota, United Way is able to make a positive impact in the lives of over 47,000 people in our local communities.”
