More than $2,700 raised for Project Pink’d; 100 Gifts Collected for Salvation Army Angel Tree; and Coats Donated to Open Door Mission.
Employees at CQuence Health Group chose to give back to the Omaha community in a big way this holiday season.
At the company’s annual holiday party, employees rallied together to raise more than $1,350 for charity, with 100% matched funds from the company. One lucky employee, chosen at random, selected Project Pink’d to be the non-profit recipient of the $2,700 donation.
The holiday party fundraiser is just part of CQuence Health Group’s larger internal commitment to volunteerism and helping others through its “CQ Cares” committee.
Mike Cassling, president and CEO of CQuence Health Group, has long been committed to helping those less fortunate throughout the metro. Employees who work at the Omaha-based company, which includes partner organizations Cassling and Ensocare, share his sentiment.
“I continue to be impressed by and proud of our employees’ generosity,” said Mike. “Our companies enjoy a culture of giving back to the community, and it is heartening to see iit played out year after year through the many events arranged by CQuence, Cassling and Ensocare staff.”
Additional holiday giving events organized by employees included 24 hours of volunteer bell ringing, which collected $401 for Salvation Army programs and services, and a coat drive that gathered coats, hats, gloves and scarves for the Open Door Mission.
In addition, employees collected nearly 100 toys to fulfill gift requests for the Salvation Army’s Angel Giving Tree, which provides holiday support for needy families and children. Participation in the Angel Tree program has become an annual event at CQuence, going back more than a decade.
Finally, employees opted to forego this month’s allotment of healthy snacks provided to them as a Wellness program benefit. Instead, $400 will be added to the Salvation Army donation totals.
