Charitable giving is a part of the holiday season for many people. Volunteer work for a local charity or monetary contributions to a worthy cause may increase during this time of year, as the holiday season brings out the desire in many people to help others.
Signature’s charitable activities fall under the planning of our Events and CARES Committee. CARES is the acronym used to denote our charitable efforts. The Committee is made up of employees from across Signature who volunteer to coordinate these activities on behalf of their colleagues.
Our latest CARES activity was a food drive to benefit HomeFront, an organization that works to break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness in Central New Jersey. Our Thanksgiving food drive resulted in the donation of ten boxes of food as well as gift cards to HomeFront. Currently underway is our Toys for Tots drive to benefit the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The drive collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes those toys as gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
While the holiday season is a popular time to think of those less fortunate, Signature plans opportunities throughout the year for staff to give back to the local community, as well as to other worthy causes. Do you know of a worthy charity? Please let us know – we are always looking for new ways to give back to those in need.
