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.
Stewardship and responsibility are at the core of Connected Nation’s mission. Our programs are aimed at enabling people and communities to improve their lives. Beyond the practical impact of resource conservation, stewardship is an important way to promote and experience our organizational purpose. Learn more about these efforts below.
Connected Nation employees are encouraged to be as "green" as possible in their home and workplace. In an effort to support these activities, Connected Nation has been highlighting green strategies and practices in our Connected Nation offices.
