Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 04, 2011
Connolly employees and the company’s owners donated more than $30,000 to the American Red Cross for assistance with Japan’s disaster relief efforts. Connolly issued a company-wide bulletin shortly after the March 11 earthquake, describing the devastation and offering an organized avenue through which employees could join together to help. The privately held company has 23 offices throughout the U.S. and in Canada and the U.K. as well as remote locations from which auditors work. There are just over 800 employees.
“Our employees’ response was phenomenal,” Connolly HR Manager Mitch Podob said. He coordinated the fundraising effort from the company’s Audit Support Center in Wilton, CT. “Many of our audit sites, and those in remote locations, supported the effort and held individual fundraising events including raffles of homemade brownies, gift basket donations and more,” he said. “Then the owners generously offered to match the funds donated by the employees.” Connolly had set a goal of raising $3,000 over a ten day period. Instead, employees donated and raised more than $15,000 and the owners matched it dollar-for-dollar for a total donation of $30,642.
The American Red Cross’ David Wolff, Chief Development Officer, Connecticut Region came to the Wilton, CT Audit Support Center on Monday, April 25, to accept the donation. “We are very grateful for this donation, which will directly support the relief work in Japan,” he said. “The Japanese Red Cross is very organized and will know just how to use the funds to make the biggest impact. This donation is beautiful, really incredible,” he added.
