Ways You Can Give Back Year Round
It was one year ago that Florida was bracing for Hurricane Irma. And just one year later, residents along the East coast in the Carolinas prepared for Hurricane Florence’s arrival. It’s time like this we want to help through volunteering and making donations. At Best Corporate Events, we know it is year round we can help those in need. Companies nationwide love our CSR, charitable team building programs. They are the most popular programs in our lineup. Organizations like American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Homeless Shelters appreciate the many items our corporate partners donate after their team building event year round.
In whatever city your company is hosting their next meeting or conference, there is a local organization in proximity. Best will work closely with you to learn the ultimate goal of your meeting. We will learn which types of organizations your staff is interested in giving back to and helping. Our Charitable Resource Manager will handle all the details of your charitable donation. From contacting the recipients, coordinating the donation and scheduling someone to accept the items live at your event when possible, we handle all the details flawlessly.
If your team of employees is interested in helping children in need, they will enjoy the Bike Build Donation®. The Bike Build Donation® is our most popular program to date! We’ve executed this program for small groups as little as 30 people to as many as 3,500 people, donating 1,024 bikes to local organizations in Las Vegas!
Here are just a few of the ways your team can make a difference based on who they are interested in helping.
Best offers a variety of CSR programs to help children of all ages. Children from as young as one year to 13 years old can benefit from a give-back program. Your team will feel all the benefits of helping those in need while having fun. Our newest program, Build-a-Computer was designed with technology in mind! Did you know some students can’t complete their homework assignments and school projects due to the lack of computers? Your company will assemble computers and full workstations complete with a desk and chair!
Another popular give-back program to help children in need is the Holiday Toy Donation. The time of year is upon us for donating toys for children’s gifts at the holidays. Most companies will participate in a charitable toy donation drive of some sort during the holidays months. So why not incorporate this popular holiday-themed drive with a team building activity. Our professional facilitators will help boost your team’s morale and create immediate results while giving back.
If your team is interested in helping the elderly community, your group will love the Build-a-Wheelchair program or Project Alzheimer’s™. Build-a-Wheelchair® is a corporate social responsibility program born out of a desire to help American veterans and others with various mobility challenges. Upon completion, the wheelchairs will be staged for a memorable photo shoot with your teams. Whenever possible, a representative from the chosen charity will make a surprise appearance, sharing information about their organization and the impact your donation will have on the recipients. The focal point of this CSR event is to benefit the countless people who, with your generous donation, will be gifted with these beautiful, brand new wheelchairs.
If your group is interested in helping Veterans, Best offers a variety of programs with Veterans in mind. Operation Military Care is a
unique opportunity to support the brave men and women proudly serving our country. Teams earn points by demonstrating high-performing team attributes such as clear communication, leadership, innovation, and team spirit. Teams will assemble their military care packages. The care packages will include personal touches in the form of letters written to the recipients that will be included in the boxes. The care package supplies are carefully chosen. Based on the items most requested by service men and women and their families. Your team will leave this event with a deep sense of patriotic accomplishment.
CSR programs are designed to boost team spirit and unity while helping less fortunate members of the community. Boost team morale and improve employee productivity with a CSR event.
