Our teams across the country have been supporting their communities in innovative ways. From volunteer events to charity golf tournaments — we have a roundup of how NWN Carousel employees are making an impact.

Our expectations have significantly changed. COVID-19 compelled many of us to reconsider what’s important in our lives. This has led to devoting our time to purposeful work, as well as more meaningful personal and business connections. We support our employees in their pursuit to engage with community and keep good company!

NWN Carousel had the honor to sponsor four charitable golf fundraisers over the course of this month. All live events attended by dozens of enthusiastic participants from our customer, employee and partner communities!

People from every pocket of the country are saying the same: It is so rewarding to once again interact in a personal face-to-face setting!

Fortunately, each of this month’s fundraising events were set on idyllic golf courses stretching coast-to-coast from New England to New Jersey and California.
