Alicia Ralston is the Director of Procurement at Archer Daniels Midland in Decatur, IL. On the last Friday of every month her department has the option to wear jeans for a $5 contribution. Those employees who contribute are then eligible to recommend specific charitable organizations to be voted on to be the recipient of the funds collected. On the following Monday the leadership team votes on the organizations nominated. Last week Wade Wright, Global Category Manager at ADM in Decatur, was kind enough to nominate project AVA to be the recipient of the funds…and we were selected!
A big thanks to ADM and to Wade for nominating project AVA! Your “causal kindness” is surely appreciated!
