After an uncertain year, we knew that our Caring for Community donation program would be more important than ever. In January and early February this year, we received 49 applications across three serving areas, so our committee (made up of team members spanning across departments and regions) had their work cut out for them in determining the 2021 recipients!
The primary goal of the program is to give support to the organizations that most impactful to the communities they serve. This year, $25,500 was distributed amongst 30 non-profits. Read about the work they’ll do with this funding below!
