The event takes place across the country allowing remote staff to be involved.

Season of Giving Campaign

Each December, Connected Nation employees are challenged to show their giving spirit by volunteering for local charities.  The following local charities have benefited from Connected Nation’s Season of Giving campaign:

  • The Salvation Army
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Low-income families in rural Ohio
  • Amethyst, Inc.

For example, in 2012, about a dozen employees took to the streets of Bowling Green, KY for a day of bell ringing for the Salvation Army and employees at the Columbus, OH office adopted a family through Amethyst, Inc.  And, in 2013, Connected Nation employees collected more than $2,700 in gift cards for ten families affected by job loss in Ohio to help them buy food, fuel, clothes, and gifts for Christmas.
