The work that these organizations are doing on behalf of men, women, and children in need cannot be overstated. It is so important for businesses to support the communities that support them.
West Monroe, Louisiana (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Coast Professional, Inc., a leading provider of collection services to the higher education marketplace, was recently honored as a “Community Champion,” an award given to firms who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the greater West Monroe area. The award was announced on July 16, 2014 at the Small Business Awards Luncheon, which was held at the West Monroe Convention Center and was hosted by the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce (WMWO).
The Community Champion Award is presented to a business and current WMWO Chamber of Commerce member that has dedicated its time and resources to bettering the community through acts of volunteerism, financial donation and/or in-kind donation. Between January 2013 and June 2014, Coast’s West Monroe office has contributed over $41,000 to local organizations as part of the Coast Gives Back Program. The donations were a combination of individual employee contributions as well as a corporate match, and benefitted numerous charities in the area, including MedCamps, the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, Family Promise of Ouachita, and the Northeast Louisiana War Veterans’ Home.
“We are so honored to be able to contribute to worthy causes in both West Monroe and West Ouachita Parish,” said Everett Stagg, President of Coast Professional. “The work that these organizations are doing on behalf of men, women, and children in need cannot be overstated. It is so important for businesses to support the communities that support them,” Mr. Stagg concluded.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our employees, who are the main reason we have this award” added Brian Davis, CEO of Coast. “They have been both enthusiastic and generous in their support of the charities we’ve worked with, giving their own money to help people in need. We were excited to be able to add to that figure from the corporate level.”
