Corvid Technologies LLC, completed holiday fundraisers to raise money for 11 mission-driven and nonprofit organizations in Iredell County. Corvid pledged a five-to-one dollar match for every employee donation and a 10-cent donation for every push-up completed in the first two weeks of December. The fundraising totaled $146,464.46 with employees raising $29,030.26 and completing 55,426 pushups.
“In addition to helping a number of charities, we also want to be good partners in the local communities where we work and live,” said David Robinson, Corvid’s CEO.
