Once again, Craig Station employees lead Moffat County United Way giving

Craig-Station-United-WayThanks in large part to Tri-State’s Craig Station, Trapper Mining, Colowyo Mine and Twentymile Coal Co. and their employees, Moffat County is in the top 10 percent of United Way donations per capita in the entire nation.

The companies were among those honored Feb. 26 during the United Way’s annual awards luncheon in Craig. Tri-State was recognized for the sixth consecutive year as the largest single donor during the 2012 fundraising cycle, contributing $87,334 to the local United Way chapter.

Craig Station maintenance planner/scheduler Steve Martin serves as president of the Moffat County United Way board. “Craig Station has increased our donations every year for the past five years,” he said. “The younger employees have really stepped up and it’s a big source of pride for us.”

Funds raised for United Way are distributed to local agencies such as Boys and Girls Club of Craig and the Moffat County Cancer Society to fund programs that better the health, education and quality of living for community members.

A total of $460,000 was raised by the community in 2012. Tri-State policy allows employees’ pre-tax donations to United Way to be matched dollar for dollar.
