Associa Minnesota Battles Sister-Branch in Charity Challenge

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn., Sept. 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Associa Minnesota recently contributed $250 to Associa Cares after emerging victorious from a friendly challenge posed by its sister-branch in Michigan.

The two offices squared-off in a nine-week challenge to see who could distribute the most mailing orders to its customers. The donation was provided by Optimal Outsource, the company both branches use for mail distribution.

"This was a clever and fun idea that promoted family spirit and at the same time, enhanced our communication efforts to the associations we serve." says Associa Minnesota President Lance Govang. "I want to thank Optimal Outsource for its contribution to this worthy cause and its consistent, professional handling of all of our mass-mailing needs."

Optimal Outsource also made a $100 contribution to Associa Cares on behalf of Associa's Kramer-Triad Management Group in Novi, Michigan.
