AUSTIN, Minn.- On Wednesday, employees at Quality Pork Processors presented a check to the United Way of Mower County for $141,000. This money will go towards the United Way’s annual campaign.
They beat their total from last year by $10,000.
Folks with the United Way raise money each year to help support 55 programs within the community.
They say they love seeing the support from businesses like QPP.
“It’s huge and they’ve broken a record this year,” said Diane Baker, Executive Director for United Way of Mower County. “It was more than expected. I know how much effort they put into it and I know how much they care, so I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised. The community is really going to benefit from their work.”
