It warms all our hearts at Valley Community Healthcare, that the employees of Birch Gold voted to donate their bonuses to us, a local community health center on the front lines of fighting COVID and devoted to protecting the health of those most vulnerable. There can be no higher accolade.
BURBANK, Calif. (PRWEB) April 20, 2020
Birch Gold Group, a national dealer of physical precious metals, announced today that it has made a donation to Valley Community Healthcare, a non-profit organization in its community that focuses on providing health services to low-income and otherwise marginalized individuals. The business now joins the ranks of the non-profit's Corporate Partners.
The decision from Birch Gold, along with its choice of the beneficiary, comes as a result of the unique situation that the coronavirus pandemic has created. Due to the severe financial turmoil that the unprecedented crisis has brought on, investors around the globe have fled to safe-haven assets, with gold and silver being among the first choices for many.
By the end of March, Birch Gold Group had processed the highest amount of monthly sales since the company opened its doors in 2003.
For many companies, the best month in its history might result in a bonus for its employees, but given the circumstances, Birch Gold Group opted for a different route. Instead of receiving their bonuses, employees voted that the money be given to an organization in their community to help bolster the crisis-fighting efforts.
After an exhaustive search of various non-profits, Valley Community Healthcare was selected as a clear-cut choice. While the coronavirus has affected most of the world's population in some way, those who normally struggle to obtain basic medical services have been hit especially hard, as hospitals become crowded and the health care industry's resources grow thin.
Andy Klein, Marketing Director at Birch Gold Group, said of the choice, "We identified a number of deserving organizations, but we were especially drawn to Valley Community Healthcare due to its roots in our community and its organized response to this crisis. We are thrilled to provide financial backing to help them take on this new challenge."
With its network of health centers spread throughout the San Fernando Valley area, Valley Community Healthcare provides mental and physical health care to those who have little to no way of obtaining it, even in non-crisis times. Established in 1970, the organization serves more than 20,000 people annually, including children and seniors.
Given the organization's experience, purpose and dedication, Birch Gold Group has no doubt that its contribution will make the exact kind of difference needed in these troubled times. Valley Community Healthcare was thrilled to become the recipient of the donation, not just because it will provide much-needed funds but also due to it being a testament to the importance of their work.
Judi Rose, VP of Valley Community Healthcare, said, "It warms all our hearts at Valley Community Healthcare, that the employees of Birch Gold voted to donate their bonuses to us, a local community health center on the front lines of fighting COVID and devoted to protecting the health of those most vulnerable. There can be no higher accolade."
