In 2017 we launched our Corporate Program in response to the increasing trend for companies to promote volunteer work as part of their social responsibility initiatives. The program was created to help companies manage employee volunteer programs and provide resources for employees to volunteer in their communities.
With over 550 employee volunteers between our corporate partners, these companies are making a great impact on local non-profit organizations through the projects created by Volunteer Square. We tailor projects based on what the company is looking to achieve and the needs of the agencies they are seeking to serve. We create projects such as half days of service, donation and supply drives, in-office arts and crafts projects, and much more. We are always looking for new companies to work with and will continue to expand our program to meet the needs of local companies and non-profit agencies.
Here are some of the projects we've done with our corporate partners. We are so proud to assist these companies as they make a difference in their local communities. If your company is interested in learning more about our program, let us know. Email Julianne Alberty, Executive Director - firstname.lastname@example.org.
