United Way of Snohomish County’s 2014 award

Umbra Cuscinetti Inc. was among several other Everett companies (March 12th, 2015) who were honored at United Way of Snohomish County’s 2014 annual Community Caring Celebration. Umbra Cuscinetti, Inc. received the Best New Campaign Award for achieving a 20% employee participation in their first year. UCI matched all employee gifts 100%, sponsored an Aerospace Golf Scramble and raised money for United Way’s Disaster Recovery Fund for Mudslide Relief.

Funds raised support 106 multi-year grants. The grants address immediate needs in priority areas that were identified by community members. The funds also support long-term solutions through United Way initiatives that focus on education, financial stability and English language learners.

“2014 was a deeply moving year for Snohomish County with the devastating mudslide last March and the school shooting in October,” said Dr. Dennis Smith, president and CEO of United Way of Snohomish County. “As often happens in such circumstances, however, these challenges brought out the best in our community: generosity and resiliency.”
