Each year we have a large Christmas party for celito staff and spouses. Instead of throwing a big party this year, the celito team used the money to give back to children in the community. We partnered with Children’s Home Society of North Carolina to sponsor local foster children. Each employee chose a foster child’s Christmas wish list and was given $100 to shop. “Partnering with celito and other great community members to fill each child’s wish list and bring Hope for the Holidays is a special way for our community to help kids heal from their past and look forward to a great future,” says Debbi Fox-Davis at CHS.
“Every year, children enter the care of Children’s Home Society because they need a permanent, safe and loving family,” says Debbi. “We are so excited when we help them find their forever family, but we never forget that this is their only childhood and each holiday is important.
Sharat Nagaraj is passionate about supporting the arts, children, and veterans/military. Participating in CHS Hope for the Holidays is just one example of what makes us unique. We don’t just say that we are committed to the community, we act on it as well. Supporting charities can make good business sense too. Here are some great reasons for your business to support nonprofits.
