They play a major role in helping meet the needs of its most vulnerable clients.
Staff members at Republic Services often volunteer at Desert Mission Food Bank.
As part of a company's desire to give back to the community — and as a team-building activity — many local companies regularly make time for their employees to volunteer their talents to assist Desert Mission.
They assemble Snack Pacs so students don't go hungry over the weekend and Smile Kits so kids have a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. They organize food drives and volunteer at the Food Bank. In short, they do a world of good.
Desert Mission staff members especially appreciate corporate volunteers in the summertime when volunteerism traditionally declines and help is needed with such big projects as the Back to School Supply Drive. Corporate partners help collect, sort and assemble school supplies for Desert Mission student clients, helping kids succeed in the coming school year.
"We're able to fulfill our mission of helping clients, thanks to our corporate partners," said Cindy Hallman, executive director, Desert Mission, and John C. Lincoln Health Network vice president. "Their hands-on work energizes us!"
