Spirit Week 2018

Earlier this year, we held our annual Spirit Week of fundraising to support local classrooms through DonorsChoose.org.

What is Spirit Week? It’s a week where we take a few hours each day to have some fun and raise money for a local charity through team building activities and games.

How does it work? Employees pay an entry fee to participate in games which through generous donations from our vendors, business partners and sales reps, have some great prizes. Other fundraisers this year included raffles, bake sales and other homemade treats, a baby photo guessing game, casual dress passes, Family Feud, a dunk tank and a controversial head shaving vote that resulted in a 3-way tie (see photos).

IMETCO stepped up to the plate for their 3rd annual Spirit Week in a big way. Through the support of our team and many of you, we were able to raise $12,067 that funded 26 projects, supported 24 teachers and helped 3,134 students. We are delighted to be able to share some of the feedback we’ve received.

DonorsChoose.org is a US–based nonprofit organization that allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom projects. The organization has been given Charity Navigator’s highest rating every year since 2005. In January 2018, they announced that 1 million projects had been funded since 2000.

The IMETCO team is already thinking of how we can top this next year!
