Brake Parts Inc. Recognized by United Way

The United Way of Greater McHenry County honored Brake Parts Inc. (BPI) with the Landmark Award for its 2015 donation of more than $176,000.

The Landmark Award honors companies that raise $100,000 or more during their annual United Way campaign. Brake Parts Inc. matched the money raised by employees during the 2015 campaign through fundraising projects such as a silent auction, “Jeans Month” when employees paid to wear jeans to work, raffles, golf passes, a taco lunch sale, a computer sale and a brake sale.

“I am extremely proud to say this is the sixth time that Brake Parts Inc has received the Landmark Award for its generous donation to the local United Way chapter,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc. “This award really goes to all of the BPI employees who go above and beyond to give to this organization that funds health and human service agencies right in our area. Donating to the United Way is our way to give back to help better the lives of people in the community that need assistance.”
