In the spirit of the Christmas season, Enertech employees have made an effort to pause to remember those in need this month. We are incredibly proud of their charitable giving and generosity.
One way our Greenville employees gave back this season is by taking on “Toys for Joy,” a community program that provides gifts to local children in need. To participate, employees were encouraged to take an angel from the employee bulletin board and purchase an item for the child listed on the back of the tag, or give a monetary donation to the organization. We are proud that our employees donated gifts and monetary donations for 25 children!
Employees were also given an opportunity to donate to the Bond County Foster Hope organization. Employees who donated $25 were allowed to wear jeans for the month of December. Bond County Foster Hope is a grassroots organization committed to recruiting, educating, and supporting local foster and adoptive families. BCFH helps with the immediate needs after a child or children are placed in foster homes such as clothes, diapers, shoes, backpacks, and much more. Enertech employees came together and raised $150 for this fantastic charity.
Our employees also supported the Salvation Army by volunteering as bell ringers. Over the years, the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States – providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry and countless social service programs year-round. Every Christmas season they set up red kettles to collect cash donations and ask volunteers to ring bells near the kettles to attract attention. All of the money raised stays in the local community. Enertech took a 10-hour shift ringing the bell at our local grocery store on December 6, with different employees working for one hour at a time.
Thanks to all Enertech Global team members who participated in these charitable programs this Christmas season. We are proud that Enertech employees are making a difference for those in need!
