A Time to Give

Nov. 19, 2015

With Thanksgiving approaching next week, I imagine most of you are looking forward to spending time with your families and friends to celebrate the holiday season. For many, the holiday season is also a time to give back to the community.

Many companies also choose to participate in charity drives or events. Each year, the employees of Scranton Gillette Communications, WQP’s parent company, vote to select a charity that we will support during the holiday season. This year, we selected Journeys, a Chicagoland-based organization that provides shelter and services to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Cook County, Ill. Boxes have been set up in the office lunch room so that employees can bring in supplies that will help Journeys’ efforts, such as clothing, food, cleaning supplies and personal care products.

Does your company participate in any charity events or nonprofit organizations during the holidays? If so, how do you choose which organizations to support? Let us know in the comments or email us at [email protected]
