Since 1987, our CEO Paul Barber has championed the spirit of giving by organizing a large yearly donation of toys and turkeys to the Salvation Army. This tradition has continued nearly 30 years later with support from our CSR committee.
In 2015, Phil Gravel, our Vice President of Professional & Client Services, decided to pursue his passion for making the world a better place by submitting a proposal for a formal Corporate Social Responsibility charter and committee.
There were two central tenets in Phil’s proposal that continue to inform our CSR efforts today:
In its first year, the CSR committee donated over $100,000 to support charitable projects in Kenya and India, as well as improve the lives of those who suffer from homelessness, women hurt by violence, and children afflicted with cancer and poverty in local communities.
Today, our committee has 15 members who are responsible for promoting, organizing, and supporting our ongoing CSR initiatives.
