U. S. Steel Employees Crush Fundraising Goal for 2024 March for Babies Campaign!

May 9, 2024

U. S. Steel Employees Crush Fundraising Goal for 2024 March for Babies Campaign!

The March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. From advocacy to education to research, they help level the playing field so that all moms and babies are healthy before, during, and after pregnancy.

2024 Impact: At U. S. Steel, fundraising efforts for the annual March for Babies campaign were held at all locations through the leadership of our SteelPARENTS, SteelABILITY, and LEAD ERGs. These included gate collections, email blasts, and employee-specific fundraising initiatives.

  • U. S. Steel set an ambitious goal of raising more than $50,000. Not only were we able to meet that goal but we came close to hitting $60,000 when all donations were counted!
  • Several locations held gate collections with the teams at Gary Works and Midwest Plant collectively raising over $25,000. Gary's Clara Wineinger was our company’s top fundraiser with more than $8,000 raised. This effort was incredible and shows a true commitment for service to the community.
  • March of Dimes held its annual walk event in Pittsburgh on April 14th. In addition to U. S. Steel’s platinum sponsorship, ERG volunteers and their families participated in the walk itself and passed out freshly made cotton candy and U. S. Steel-themed sunglasses at our company booth.

Take Action: There is still time to donate and join the team! Virtual donations can be made here (www.marchforbabies.org/USSteel), and you can designate your gift for a specific U. S. Steel team.

Thank you again for all who donated to such a worthy cause and a special thanks to those who volunteered and participated at the in-person walk in Pittsburgh!
