Dittman is very excited to be participating with these exceptional charities in NJ.
New Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Introduced in 2009, the Yankees’ HOPE Week initiative (Helping Others Persevere & Excel) is rooted in the fundamental belief that acts of goodwill provide hope and encouragement to more than just the recipient of the gesture. Dittman Incentive Marketing, admiring the Yankee’s HOPE Week initiative, received permission to duplicate the model to mark the 35 Year Anniversary of Dittman Incentive Marketing.
Like the Yankees, each day during HOPE Week, Dittman Incentive Marketing employees will reach out to a non-profit organization to provide recognition and support. Outreach often takes place outside the office, so as to personally connect with people in the location and settings that honor the spirit of charitable endeavors.
Says NY Yankees Director of Communications and Media Relations Jason Zillo, “HOPE Week is an initiative meant to inspire others, and it is very fulfilling for the New York Yankees to see businesses carrying on the tradition. We know that the Dittman team-mates will get as much gratification from their efforts as our players do.”
By involving every one of the Dittman team during HOPE Week, Dittman hopes this helps send the message that everyone can give to make a better community.
Equally significant during HOPE Week is spotlighting worthy organizations. The greatest challenge facing many not-for-profits is generating interest, awareness, and funding, particularly during times of economic turmoil.
35 Year Celebration… Dittman HOPE Week
Dittman’s team is as diverse as the corporate clients, and Dittman's 35 Year Celebration is in keeping with the corporate vision: "To help people and organizations exceed their own expectations."
Dittman has taken this celebration to a very personal level this year, selecting five New Jersey-based charities that focus on children and families in need. Dittman Team Members are excited about participating in HOPE Week and have all signed up for a day of service, some asking to do more than one day:
- Elijah’s Promise
From a small soup kitchen serving meals to moving people out of poverty, Elijah's Promise uses food as a tool to feed people, train people and employ people in the work of ending hunger.
- Healing the Children New Jersey
Healing the Children® New Jersey provides life-changing medical care for poor children at home in the United States and throughout the world.
