Collective held a companywide community outreach program, Collective Cares, on Sept. 24. The provider of audience-driven media and technology solutions for marketers designed the program to encourage volunteerism and service to employees in its nine U.S. offices.
In New York, staffers did some cleaning and provided dinner for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of New York, which provides a temporary home for pediatric cancer patients and their families. In Los Angeles, Collective employees manned the call center at nonprofit Wise & Healthy Aging, contacting people about helping prevent financial abuse of seniors.
Meanwhile, in Texas, employees in Fort Worth put in time cleaning at Save Haven, a nonprofit facility devoted to ending family violence, and helping in the Special Olympics office, while in Dallas, they delivered meals for the Visiting Nurses Association.
"Collective Cares provides an opportunity for the entire organization to impact the community by supporting various charities and community programs," said Jennifer Morgan, chief operating officer at Collective, in a statement. "Assisting communities where Collective offices are located is an important part of developing the values that define our company."
Collective Cares will work throughout the year with organizations such as Angel Tree and the American Heart Association, as well as with local food banks and shelters in areas where Collective offices are located.
