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.

“NWN Carousel is committed to helping ensure the success of our younger generation and had decided long ago that Big Brother’s Big Sister’s (BBBS) mission of providing one-to-one mentoring relationships was our best way to do so. The fact that BBBS supports healthy, social and emotional development, and improves mental health for America’s youth, is the reason we have been contributing to their various fundraising events for the last 17 years. We look forward to many more years of investing in this wonderful partnership.”
