Cone Health Receives Spirit of North Carolina Award from United Way

Cone Health received a “Spirit of North Carolina Award” for Campaign Excellence from the United Way of North Carolina in the category of “hospital/health system” with more than 5,000 employees. The Spirit awards provide statewide recognition for outstanding commitment and support to communities through local United Way involvement.

“One of our values is caring for our community,” says Karin Henderson, Chairman, Cone Health United Way Campaign. “I can’t think of a better way as an organization to show that we care about what goes on in our community than our involvement in United Way.”
Cone Health employees raised $571,138.05 during the Greensboro campaign.

The Spirit Awards were developed to recognize the companies and employees that demonstrate campaign excellence and community commitment. The Spirit Committee judged more than 70 outstanding submissions from top companies, organizations, governmental entities, healthcare and educational institutions, as well as businesses – large and small.

Organizations and companies were judged on a variety of criteria, including leadership giving, volunteerism, employee participation and giving levels, year-round education, corporate support, incentive programs and campaign rallies.

The Spirit Award was presented to Cone Health during the United Way of North Carolina’s Annual Meeting on February 3 in Pinehurst.
