Telestream employees earn award from United Way

Telestream, a leading corporation in Nevada County, recently earned a premiere gold award from United Way of Nevada County for its continual support and top participation in the United Way campaign.

Megan Timpany, executive director of United Way of Nevada County, presented the award to Dan Castles of Telestream for his company’s continuous, generous support. In the past five years, even as the economy suffered, Telestream employees increased their payroll pledging on an annual basis.

Thirteen other companies and government agencies received special community giving awards from United Way of Nevada County for the campaign year 2012-2013. Telestream, however, was the only company that received a premiere gold award. Along with growing its campaign on an annual basis, Telestream has also been involved with United Way’s Day of Action. Telestream employees have participated in this community day of volunteerism since 2008.

United Way of Nevada County’s newest participant in the Employee Giving Campaign is Texas Instruments Grass Valley Design Center.

Through a collaboration with United Way and the Food Bank of Nevada County, Texas Instruments was involved with a project to help pack Thanksgiving boxes for community members in need.

Nationally, Texas Instruments is very involved with United Way Worldwide and has been very supportive in encouraging the local employees of Texas Instruments to get involved with United Way of Nevada County.

Many businesses and government agencies across the county are currently participating in the United Way Employee Giving Campaign for the campaign year 2013-2014.

The money raised from these events and the payroll pledge campaigns goes into the Community Impact Fund or is designated for specific nonprofits.

This year, United Way of Nevada County will commit funds to health and human services to maximize community impact in three critical areas: education, income and health.

United Way of Nevada County currently has 21 partner agencies, all of which are local health and human service nonprofits. The Interfaith Food Ministry is the newest nonprofit to join the family of United Way of Nevada County.
