ABOUT THE CARING STAR PROGRAM
The Win-Win-Win attitude is the heart of Bannister Plumbing. The customer must “Win”, the team member must “Win”, and the company must “Win”. The “Bannister Caring Star Team” is a group of individuals dedicated to appropriately distributing our company’s charitable contributions, sponsorships, community service efforts, and most importantly carrying out the team member “Win” in our mission statement. Our goal is to complete these tasks while adhering to the Bannister Plumbing values of “Faith, Family, and Excellence”.
The Bannister Caring Star Program will be funded in part by the “Bannister Caring Star Employee Giving Fund”. This fund provides an opportunity for team members to actively contribute and participate in our culture of giving. The Bannister Caring Star Employee Giving Fund will benefit, and be fully supported only by Bannister Plumbing team members.
We have also decided that Bannister Plumbing will be matching the team member contributions to the fund by increasing our budgeted Donations and Contributions by that amount each year. Employees will have the opportunity to provide the Caring Star Team with the name of their favorite charitable organization and the Team will decide where to place the available funds.
