City of Pocatello Employees Donate Over $23,000 During United Way Giving Campaign


Thanks to generous donations, City of Pocatello employees have pledged $23,054 to United Way of Southeastern Idaho to help community members in need. Each year the City of Pocatello employees host a United Way giving campaign. This year the Pocatello Fire Department alone contributed over $15,600 of the City’s total contribution. One hundred percent of the donations by City employees go to local programs in the community. 

“We have the best employees here at the City,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “Each year they are able to increase the amount of money raised for people within our community.”

Thursday, January 9, a check for $23,054 was presented to United Way of Southeastern Idaho. Members from the Fire and Police Department were in attendance, City employees, and Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad.

“100 percent of this generous donation from the City of Pocatello and the Pocatello Firefighters Union will go directly back into local nonprofit programs that directly support community members in need,” said Wendi Ames, Director of Donor and Community Engagement. “We are so grateful for this partnership in lifting up our community together.”

Each year over 500 City employees come together to contribute funds to benefit local individuals and families. In 2022, employees pledged $20,122 to United Way of Southeastern Idaho.
