Partaking in the spirit of giving this holiday season, A-LIGN entered its eighth year of its Holiday Charity Donation Program.
This annual tradition gives clients the opportunity to donate to a charity of their choice in place of client appreciation gifts, and it is a way for both clients and A-LIGN to support those who have been deeply impacted by COVID-19 and the subsequent challenges during the holiday season.
One hundred A-LIGN clients donated to the below nonprofit organizations to support their mission and commitment to serving those in need.
- Junior Achievement USA – Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. They have 106 local JA areas across the nation, and together they are the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices.
- Think Big for Kids – Think Big for Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged youth discover their untapped potential by bringing them exciting opportunities for career exploration, mentorship, and skills development. Their mission is to introduce students from 6th to 12th grade to exciting career opportunities and assist them in achieving post-graduation goals for employment.
- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) – The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is one of the largest in the world. The organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law.
As we enter 2021 with newfound hope and a positive outlook after a particularly difficult year, we want to take a moment and recognize how important the human connection is when faced with adversity. We see it in our own employees – our CLIMBERS – and in all the ways they represent us through their many business and professional relationships. And it is that same spirit that naturally extends out to our clients, partners, and the community at large.
In a year that pushed individuals, businesses and communities together, we appreciate our clients taking this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
