Our commitment to Corporate Citizenship doesn’t quit! Find a few ideas for supporting the community in the face of COVID.
Now, maybe more than ever before, our communities and charitable programs need support. Despite the challenges of our current environment, we’re getting creative across the Company to support first responders and organizations in our local communities.
But, getting involved may feel daunting with COVID-related health and safety regulations in place and resource constraints that many of us may be experiencing. The good news is you don’t have to dig into your pocket to have an impact!
Here are some ways you, your team and/or your family can make a big difference in your community:
- Consider non-cash donations – for example: clothing, books, pet supplies, home goods or sports equipment
- Identify opportunities to donate your time or expertise – for example: walking dogs at the local shelter, serving food at a shelter, packing boxes at a food bank, delivering meals to elders or bell ringing (around the holidays)
- Offer other “in-kind” contributions – for example: airline miles, rewards points or building supplies
When in doubt, call your favorite local charity and ask them what would be most helpful. It’s even easier if you organize a team!
Many thanks to employees across the Company who continue to live our Core Values inside and outside of work and demonstrate that our commitment to Corporate Citizenship never quits – even when times get tough.
