Annual United Way Campaign
We kicked off our annual United Way Campaign by dividing our firm into two teams for our annual  “PENNY WAR”  for the month of November. The goal is for each team member to contribute pennies into their Team’s jar. The team members of the winning team each won a free Works Car Wash at a nearby car wash.

Lohman Company also pledged to match the largest team total up to $250.00. The winning total was $214.58, with the firm’s match the total donated to the Mesa United Way from our “PENNY WAR” was $429.16. Thank you to all who participated.
