John Ascuaga and the Ascuaga family are well-known for giving back to their community, and their employees at the Nugget follow their lead. This year, employees at John Ascuaga’s Nugget exceeded the $1 million mark in donations to the United Way. Since their annual campaigns began in 1998, employees have made direct contributions through payroll deductions, gave cash donations and held fundraisers. “I am honored to work in a business that values community involvement,” said Terry Maine, employee relations manager and Nugget United Way coordinator. “It’s amazing to see the employees come together for a common goal: living united.” On Friday, employees wore shirts saying, ‘One In a Million,’ which they purchased as an additonal donation.
