Link Companies Call-a-Thon raises $32K for charity

The Link Companies hosted a call-a-thon, raising $32,000 for charity.

The first-ever The Link Companies call-a-thon, held on June 22, was an initiative aimed at raising funds for supporting charities: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Wellspring Living and Gift for Life. With every appointment made, a set amount was donated to the efforts. The goal was to donate $25,000 in charitable giving, which was surpassed due to the number of appointments booked with retailers, according to The Link Companies.

“We’re thrilled with our first Link call-a-thon results,” said Fred Rosenkampff, CEO of The Link Companies and Gift for Life Board Member. “And we’re excited to donate to our Link Charities and help support World Central Kitchen through Gift for Life. This was a special day in our company history.”

The Link Companies booked a record number of appointments for July in one day during the call-a-thon, the company said. The effort was led by the company’s 90 territory managers getting their customers on the phone and booked in July, with a majority of appointments attending Atlanta Market, July 10-17. The number of appointments booked surpasses last year’s totals and creates an exciting foundation heading into the Market in a few weeks.

“You could sense the energy building throughout the day,” reported Fred Ballard, president of The Link Companies. “Our territory managers were super impressive and really stepped up for this special program. But our customers came through and we’re truly blessed to work with wonderful people. Their partnership and generosity showed out in a big way.”

The buzz of the day carried over to several vendors, the company said, many reaching out to share their support for the call-a-thon and rally their customer base to see them in The Link Companies showroom this July.

“We are more than grateful for our team and our retail partners,” said Brad Rosenkampff, chief marketing officer of The Link Companies. “We’re honored to work with these great charitable organizations and this tremendous team effort will have an immediate impact!”
