TruGreen company has pledged to provide a 50 cents on the dollar match to every employee pledge for this year’s United Way campaign. TruGreen employs about 2,000 people in Memphis and Shelby County.
“We’re looking forward to getting the word out and we’re encouraging participation,” said Patrick Alexander, TruGreen’s United Way campaign coordinator.
“Whatever our employees give, we’re going to match that gift,” said David Alexander, TruGreen CEO. Alexander spoke about employees supporting United Way at a recent breakfast meeting for TruGreen Leadership Givers (who give $500 or more a year to United Way).
Campaign committee members for the TruGreen drive for United Way include Patrick Alexander, Rhonda Bologna, Brette Connell, Kim Norisse and Amy Simpson.
