Everyone should make an effort to help out great organizations like Make-A-Wish. We’ve made it a part of our culture, because it supports a stronger more involved community and workforce.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Converged Technology Professionals, Inc. made a donation in lieu of gifts to its customers this year to Make-A-Wish Illinois. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. The donation this year helped a twelve-year old boy named Ben. Ben was recently diagnosed with a blood disorder which resulted in a bone marrow transplant. His wish was to travel to London. Make-A-Wish transported Ben and his family to the airport in a limousine, where they began Ben’s adventure. He toured London in a double-decker bus and saw Big Ben, the Tower of London, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, and saw spectacular views of London from atop the London Eye Ferris wheel. Ben’s mom wrote about the trip, “We had such a wonderful time and are so grateful to Make-A-Wish. Thank you! This was awesome for our whole family. Ben really deserved a week about him.”
Chris Frey, Vice President of Operations at Converged Technology Professionals, Inc. stated, “We are very proud of the contribution we made to Make-A-Wish. We are grateful for our customers for giving us the opportunity to support such an inspirational organization. We have a strong commitment to serving our community at CT-Pros and Make-A-Wish grants wishes to the children in our community that need them the most.”
Inspired by the efforts of Make-A-Wish Illinois, Converged Technology Professionals, Inc. gave its employees the option to earn paid time off for time spent volunteering in the community. The program was adopted enthusiastically by their employees and community service and involvement are now thoroughly embedded in the company’s culture.
Chris Frey added, “Everyone should make an effort to help out great organizations like Make-A-Wish. We’ve made it a part of our culture, because it supports a stronger more involved community and workforce. Volunteering, lending a hand to those who need help, are transformative behaviors that cultivate strong moral convictions.”
