Brake Parts Inc (BPI) has raised more than $175,000 for the United Way of Greater McHenry, an increase over last year’s donation, during its annual campaign drive that ran in the fourth quarter of 2015, said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc.

“Once again, BPI employees took our United Way partnership to heart and generously gave to support our local chapter which funds 27 health and human service agencies in the McHenry area,” said Overbeeke. “I can’t say enough about our employees and how proud I am that they rose to this year’s challenge and not only matched last year’s donation, but greatly exceeded it. This donation allows us to give back to the community to help better the lives of residents who depend on the United Way for assistance.”

Brake Parts Inc matched the money that was raised by employees through special fundraising projects, including many held at the McHenry, Ill. headquarters, such as a silent auction, “Jeans Month” where employees paid to wear jeans to work, raffles, golf passes, a taco lunch sale, computer sale and brake sale.

Brake Parts Inc has been the largest contributor to the United Way in McHenry County for several years and has received the Landmark Award three times. The Landmark Award was created in 2011 and is reserved for companies that raise $100,000 or more during their United Way campaign.
