KAR Honors Volunteer

By Staff Writer October 14, 2020

KAR Auction Services Inc. recognized outstanding employee volunteer, Jenny White, during the annual Jefferson Awards ceremony. A program of the nonprofit service organization Multiplying Good, the Jefferson Awards is the nation’s largest and longest-running awards ceremony honoring community volunteerism.

“At KAR, we’re passionate about giving back and doing good, and we celebrate our incredible employees who create positive change in communities across the globe,” said Lisa Price, EVP and chief people officer for KAR. “As a Multiplying Good Champion partner, we’re honored to recognize Jenny for her meaningful volunteer work, supporting children worldwide.”

Since 2013, White has volunteered as a sponsor and advocate with Compassion International, traveling five times to Uganda, forging and making connections with children that will last a lifetime. Compassion International works in 25 countries to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. When White’s not traveling abroad on mission trips, she serves as an advocate raising awareness and funds for the organization.

Multiplying Good presented the 2020 ceremony as a one-hour streaming video, providing an opportunity to share inspiring stories from honorees and present awards in a variety of categories, including employees, private citizens and corporations.

“The Jefferson Awards celebrate extraordinary service to others performed by unsung heroes from around the country, corporations, and national figures,” said Hillary Schafer, CEO of Multiplying Good. “We’re thrilled to continue this 48-year-old tradition, bringing together the incredible spirit of those who have proven that service to others is a salve for everything that seeks to divide us.”

Nearly a dozen employee volunteers were nominated for the award by their peers. A judging panel consisting of members of KAR’s management team selected the following Jefferson Awards honorees: Gina Kerr (KAR Global), Randy Murphy (OPENLANE), Kathy Sabaski (AFC Philadelphia), and chose White (KAR Global) as the company’s finalist.
