SWC Group, an ACA International member company in Carrollton, Texas, chose to support local organization Hope’s Door as its 2016 Fourth Quarter Charity of Choice.
Employees assembled 500 personal care packages and contributed $645 in cash donations to Hope’s Door.
“It is our culture to give back to our community. Each employee is offered a paid day to serve at any charity of choice and as a company, we select at least one charity to sponsor each quarter,” said Jeff Hurt, CEO of SWC Group. “We chose Hope’s Door because of their dedication to providing safety and shelter to community members affected by intimate partner and family violence.”
Employees contributed to the charity in two ways. First, they worked together to assemble personal care packages using items purchased by SWC Group, such as shampoo, lotion, mouthwash, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste. These care packages are typically given to people staying at an emergency shelter. Employees also contributed by making cash donations.
“We are continually impressed by our employees’ desire to give – time and time again,” Hurt said. “And our hope is that our small contributions will continue to better our community for years to come.”
