Thanksgiving and Giving Back
The team at Best Corporate Events wants to wish all of our clients and partners a Happy Thanksgiving. As we look back on our year, we are grateful for the companies that reached out to us to fulfill their corporate social responsibility. Our CSR team building programs allow us to help charitable organizations year-round.
At Best Corporate Events we are proud to partner with 1,000s of companies nationwide to donate items to help less fortunate members of the community. While some tend to focus more on giving during the holiday season, we are pleased to offer give-back charitable team building programs throughout the year. Our CSR programs can be delivered anywhere in North America. They feature group bonding activities designed to boost team spirit. These uplifting events include activities, games, and challenges result in the creation of items for donation. The items are donated to local and national charities for the benefit of overseas soldiers, schools, the homeless, children, the elderly, and Alzheimer’s patients – to name a few.
It doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving or the holiday season to focus on giving back. Sure we all love pumpkin pie, turkey and football, but let us not forget the reason for the season. The meaning of Thanksgiving, as it is known today, has vastly changed from how it originated. There wasn’t always a Macy’s parade, or watching a football game, nor was pumpkin pie a dessert staple. These tried and true traditions only came into existence many years after the first Thanksgiving.
In 2012, #GivingTuesday was rolled out, making it another popular day to promote and celebrate philanthropy. According to givingtuesday.org, it’s easy to participate. Just come together and find a way you or your company can give back to the community. There are so many ways you can help others. Through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice.
Whatever your family’s traditions may be, Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday meant to show appreciation and thanks. BEST is thankful for all our amazing clients and non-profit partners. Without these organizations nationwide, we would not be able to offer over 16+ CSR programs and help those in need through our charitable donations. THANK YOU!
