We’re about to make your Friday a whole lot funnier. United Site Services Inc. (USS), the nation’s leading provider of portable restrooms services, temporary fence rentals, luxury trailers and shower trailers, roll off dumpsters and other site services, recently launched an employee driven fundraiser “challenging” its associates to send a short video clip of a fun and family-friendly turkey impersonation in return for a donation to Hire Heroes USA.

And guess how much the company raised? $10,000! What a fun group of employees to take on this challenge for such a great cause.

Hire Heroes USA provides free employment services to thousands of transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses every year. It recently earned Charity Navigator’s highest possible 4-star rating for a third consecutive year.

United Site Services is also focused on community engagement via its #USSGivesBack program.  Through this program, the company supports community organizations promoting youth sports, theater groups, and organizing food and toy drives throughout the United Sites. The company has deep roots in local communities it serves with its employees living and working in those communities.  United Site Services’ decision to partner with Hire Heroes USA is coupled with the company’s commitment to hiring veterans and honor their commitments to our country. This initiative is a way to raise awareness of Hire Heroes USA and link the two organizations for future collaborations.

“Employee engagement is always a focus for USS; we like to challenge our employees to think of others, especially during this time of year,” commented Ron Carapezzi, Chief Executive Officer of United Site Services.  “We are honored to give to an organization that helps our service men and women is such a powerful way. We are also humbled by the response of our people.  Our employees really made this something fun and memorable.”
