San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2016
Three time’s definitely a charm for Together We Bake (TWB) and Instant Checkmate(ICM), one of the world’s largest people search engines. For the third consecutive year, ICM has renewed its annual corporate sponsorship of TWB with a donation of $10,500.
The mission of Together We Bake--a comprehensive workforce training and personal development program that enables women in need of a second chance to gain self- confidence and food services skills--dovetails with Instant Checkmate’s corporate social responsibility. One of the San Diego-based company’s primary goals is to reduce criminal victimization by providing the general public with a tool to learn more about the people in their lives. ICM’s database offers instant access to information including criminal, sex offender and marital records.
"Helping the community is part of what Instant Checkmate is all about, so of course we understand the importance of giving back,” says Kris Kibak, CEO of Instant Checkmate. “Together We Bake is such a unique organization and we admire the work they do. We are happy to be able to support this great organization once again for 2016."
Instant Checkmate’s donation will sponsor one woman per each of TWB’s three sessions this year. Centered on a micro-baking business where participants become proficient in food production, food safety education and customer service, TWB is a multi-pronged success story. The program continues to thrive, with an 83% program completion rate, a recidivism rate of 8% (this towers over the national average) and a 55% employment rate for graduates working to re-enter society and forge a positive future.
“TWB graduates are empowered and ready to forge a positive future,” says Stephanie Wright, who co-founded TWB in 2012 with Tricia Sabatini. “Our program is specifically designed to meet the needs of women emerging from the corrections system or are in other transitional situations and we are extremely grateful for the support of Instant Checkmate.”
