The Zimbrick Volunteer Network, a volunteer group consisting of Zimbrick employees and their friends and families, has joined the United Way of Dane County’s Business Volunteer Network.
The Business Volunteer Network (BVN) is Dane County’s resource for developing and coordinating workplace volunteer efforts and provides programs that can help build employee skills and attitudes that foster organizational commitment, company loyalty, and personal fulfillment.
BVN helps to build these skills and attitudes by partnering companies and their employees with community volunteer opportunities. The BVN is a natural fit with United Way of Dane County’s Volunteer Center, which provides critical administrative resources, guidance and support to BVN, in addition to access to hundreds of other non-profit agencies in Dane County. Through BVN, non-profit agencies and volunteers are strong partners in achieving measurable results, one goal of our community’s Agenda for Change.
Zimbrick is back in the BVN after a multi-year hiatus, and Kathy Martinson, the director of the United Way Volunteer Center, is more than happy to have them back.
“United Way is thrilled to have Zimbrick as a member of our Business Volunteer Network,” Kathy Martinson said. “As one of our founding members in 1999, two Zimbrick employees played key roles in developing this very viable and robust organization, which now has 33 members.”
The Zimbrick Volunteer Network (ZVN) is a growing group of employees at Zimbrick Fish Hatchery Road who is taking one of Zimbrick’s Core Values – Strong Relationships with our Business Partners and Communities – and elevate it to the next level.
With the assistance of the United Way and the Business Volunteer Network, the ZVN is putting together a schedule of volunteer activities for the year of 2011.
“The Zimbrick family of dealerships are an important part of our community and will be an important part of helping BVN achieve our goals and fulfill our mission to be ‘a catalyst for businesses to build and promote successful workplace volunteer programs.’,” Martinson said.
