I love working for a company that insists on making an impact in our communities. If half of the corporations in the world had half the heart that Foundation Financial Group does, world hunger would not exist and cancer would already be cured.
Savannah, GA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Foundation Financial Group announced its partnership with Goodwill of the Coastal Empire and People Helping People for a clothing distribution event. FFG employees from the company’s Savannah office, located at 17 Park of Commerce Boulevard, supported the drive which took place in Forsyth Park. The event was organized to directly benefit the displaced persons of Savannah.
“When I think about homeless families with toddlers sleeping on the streets and veterans eating out of trash cans, I immediately want to help,” said Foundation Financial Group Event Coordinator Gregory Ludwig. “Most of our city’s homeless are good people who have been knocked down by hard times and need a hand up, not a handout.”
In preparation for the clothing distribution event, FFG employees organized a clothing drive in which the staff collected and donated over 200 pieces of clothing, including shoes and eye glasses, to Goodwill. Additionally, Foundation Financial Group purchased Goodwill gift cards that FFG volunteers offered to the families of their choice during the event. The gift cards were an important way to empower recipients and provide them an opportunity to shop for clothing that best suited their individual size and style preferences while enabling them to maintain their dignity. In addition to the company’s volunteer efforts, Foundation Financial made a significant financial contribution to Goodwill of the Coastal Empire.
“Volunteering can actually benefit you, your company and your family as much as the specific cause,” continued Ludwig. “I love working for a company that insists on making an impact in our communities. If half of the corporations in the world had half the heart that Foundation Financial Group does, world hunger would not exist and cancer would already be cured.”
Goodwill of the Coastal Empire started in 1965 with eight employees and a $60,000 budget and now employs over 500 employees and wields a budget of nearly $24 million. The nonprofit organization’s mission is to help people with barriers to employment find ways to overcome these challenges. Goodwill’s ultimate aim is to teach these individuals how to live independently and find employment. In 2012, Goodwill provided services to 24,000 people and placed about 1,400 people in real jobs.
