We are lucky to live in a country where we have the amazing opportunity to build our organization and to serve our customer.
Particularly at this time of year, we feel we also have an opportunity to be a good corporate citizen and to give back to our community, state, country, and planet. We wanted to let our customers and friends know about an innovative program we’ve developed to connect our employees with their favorite nonprofit organization and also to encourage you to do something similar - whether it is with time or money.
WhiteStar reserves a portion of its profits every year to support charitable, educational and volunteer organizations. Rather than make a lump sum to any one organization, each employee is allocated a sum that he or she can donate to their organization of choice. The only requirement is that the organization be a qualified nonprofit.
In Colorado, our home state, we have an organization in coloradogives.org that will, for some nonprofits, contribute additional funds for every donation received.
This year’s nonprofits supported by our employees are astonishingly diverse and serve a variety of important causes:
We Don't Waste - Food otherwise wasted is distributed to those who need it.
New Mexico Humane Society - Animal well-being in New Mexico
Jefferson County Action Center - Teaching people locally to become self sustainable.
Wounded Warrior Project - Help for injured American service people.
Freedom Service Dogs Service dogs for returning American injured veterans.
Colorado Hands & Voices - Support for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Fins Attached - Marine conservation, education, and protection.
Water for People - Dedicated to safe and clean drinking water worldwide.
Cat Care Society - Veterinary care, adoptions, low income assistance.
Jewish Family Services - Services to community regardless of race, creed.
Ignite Adaptive Sports - Recreational opportunities for those with disabilities
Urban Peak - Homeless center for young people
