CB Wholesale, a Bellingham-based roofing, drywall and steel-stud dealer, donated more than $1,000 total to the Whatcom Humane Society and Skagit County Meals on Wheels.
“We donate money to local charities throughout each year,” said Mark Mendenhall, general manager of CB Wholesale, in a press release. “This time we wanted to incorporate an additional level of visibility to the charities we donate to – that’s when we decided to utilize our Facebook page.”
CB Wholesale employees brainstormed and came up with the idea to donate $5 to each charity for every new “like” they received on the company’s Facebook page.
“Our no-profit organization is thankful and appreciative of the generous donation from CB Wholesale. It’s great to see local businesses thinking outside the box when it comes to ways to raise money,” said Laura Clark, director of the Whatcom Humane Society.
