Tyler, TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2014
The employees of Mentoring Minds have a spirit to serve and share. It’s more than just part of a mission statement or policy; it’s actually part of the Mentoring Minds’ ethos. Because of a shared passion for helping others, Mentoring Minds created a program for service called MindSHARE. MindSHARE encourages the team at Mentoring Minds to be active members and volunteers in the community. Employee-nominated organizations are evaluated by the employee-based MindSHARE committee on several factors such as employee involvement and organizational reach. Recently, the MindSHARE committee awarded a total of $5000 to four organizations to assist the non-profits’ missions.
Awards were given to:
- Casa Esperanza – House of Hope is an independent non-profit home that houses families who are referred to Albuquerque, NM for cancer treatment, regardless of their financial situation. More information can be found at http://www.casanm.org.
- Salvation Army, a local chapter of a national organization, intends to provide musical instruments for the children in their After-School Program. Visit http://www.salvationarmy.org for more information.
