2023 Community Campaign – Giving Back to the Medal of Honor Recipients


The 2023 Community Campaign was a blast. This weeklong fundraiser ran from August 21st-24th. The nonprofit LaForce chose to donate to is the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. Through games, lunches, donations, and more, we were able to raise more than $30,000 for CMOHS! Throughout the week, we had dress up themes, grab bags, an ice cream bar, a 52-club breakfast, a dunk tank, a bake sale, raffle baskets, company drawings, a bags tournament, scratch offs, 50/50, a guessing jar, bull naming, money wars, a cookout, and the finale lunch!

Our Green Bay Office and several of our other LaForce locations throughout the United States supported the Congressional Medal of Honor Society for this year’s campaign. The Society’s membership is comprised of those who wear the Medal of Honor, the United States’ highest military award for valor. Through the Society’s Outreach, Education and History initiatives, the Medal of Honor Recipients continue their service across the nation.

Friday’s festivities gave employees a preview of the week’s activities. They were invited to check out all the potential prizes, make donation pledges, and purchase event tickets. This year we had the chance to name a rodeo bull! Employees got to play scratch offs for prizes and put their tickets in the raffle baskets created and donated by departments.

We officially kicked off campaign week on Monday with a cookout sponsored by ASSA ABLOY! We had two of our employees grilling brats and burgers for all. Allen Lynch, a Medal of Honor recipient, came and shared his story with LaForce employees at our cookout. This speech by Mr. Lynch was very moving and kickstarted a great week of donations and fun.
