November 1, 2022 – This past month, Esler Cos., and the entire Renewal by Andersen network, partnered with the American Cancer Society to raise funds for research and family aid.
All nine Esler Cos. locations united in a campaign they called, “Stronger Together.” Each office posted purple ribbons in honor of loved ones who are struggling with cancer, who have survived cancer, or have succumbed to cancer. Esler Cos. has always believed in meeting teammates where they are at and providing the support of a community when it’s needed most.
In total, the company donated $50,000.00 to the American Cancer Society, helping Renewal by Andersen surpass its goal of $500,000.00. In total, Esler Cos. and the Renewal by Andersen community have donated over $2 Million to this worthy cause.
Teammates were also invited to share stories and photos of their loved ones who have experienced cancer and shared them in weekly emails with teammate’s permission.
“Cancer affects us all – whether you’re a patient or not. We were happy to donate to the American Cancer Society to further their mission, but it also became a moment of community. The stories we heard… one was from a teammate whose father had lost a leg to cancer and through hard work and dedication, learned how to run with a prosthetic, going on to place in the Paralympics. I’m not sure it gets more inspiring than that. We’re grateful to our teammates for opening up and supporting one another.”
-Lauren LaBak, Teammate Experience Program Manager
The company also hosted a weekly raffle where the winner chose a non-profit to receive a $100 donation. During Week 3, the winner was a teammate whose entry had been submitted as a memorial.
“We rally around our teammates, but we’ve still lost some amazing people to cancer. I’m so glad we were able to honor her memory. I hope those we’ve lost know we carry them with us.”
This event has been held for six years and will remain an annual campaign for Esler Companies and its teams.
