Busey Celebrates National Volunteer Month

Busey associates and the community team up to serve charitable organizations

Busey is excited to celebrate service—taking action and solving problems in our community—during National Volunteer Month in April. Community Promise Month encourages Busey associates to volunteer their time and talents to organizations that fuel their passion for helping others. More than two dozen events are planned to support charitable organizations including: TAPS Animal Shelter and Carol House of Hope.

Community Promise Month volunteer opportunities in Pekin include:
  • TAPS Animal Shelter: Volunteers will assist the no-kill shelter with restoration projects at the facility at 100 TAPS Ln. on April 14 from 2:30-4:30 p.m.
  • Carol House of Hope: On April 22 from 2-4 p.m. at their sister organization, Center for Prevention and Abuse, volunteers will spring clean and sort donations.

Since its inception in 2012, Busey associates have volunteered nearly 5,700 hours in April alone, and we look forward to contributing even further in 2016.

In addition to volunteer opportunities, Busey makes it easy to give back through social media initiatives—Community Counts & Promise a Plate—during Community Promise Month.
  • Community Counts: Busey will award $250 the first three Fridays in April to a charity of your choice. Nominate your favorite nonprofit on Facebook or Twitter. The organization with the most votes in Busey’s Facebook photo album each week wins.
  • Promise a Plate: Busey will partner with Peoria Area Food Bank April 22-29 to stock their shelves. Since its inception, Busey has provided 52,000 meals to those less fortunate across Central Illinois. “Like” Busey on Facebook or “follow” them on Twitter or Instagram to donate 30 meals. Share or retweet messaging on Facebook or Twitter and Busey will donate 20 meals. For a donation of 10 meals, comment or reply on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
