What does Community Appreciation look like?
In years past, we have collected new socks, undershirts and gently used pants and jackets to fill care packages for needy families. We’ve written notes encouraging people to have faith in their own ability to improve their lives. We have shopped for supplies, cooked and served meals, and cleaned up afterwards. We’ve packed first aid kits and filled backpacks with school supplies. Our employees are vested in these efforts because they help choose the organizations we sponsor. They also join us in the work—and the joy—of helping others.
The organizations we partner with serve people of color who are going through hardship. By helping others, our own employees expand their awareness of community needs and various organizations they can support. They also learn how to incorporate giving back into their lives. It is our sincere hope to inspire lifelong change within our own staff, empowering them and their family members to become civic leaders who will work to strengthen our community as a whole.
