In addition to our global partnership with Save the Children, BGRS continues to our philanthropic efforts with local charities.
As we continue our support with Save the Children, BGRS offices across the globe also support regional charities whose focus is to help the world’s youth reach new horizons.
BGRS’s Scottsdale office recently participated in a United Food Bank fundraiser. Employees from the office visited United Food Bank of Arizona to prepare emergency family food bags. Each food bag will feed a family of four for three days during an emergency situation or time in need. The group of BGRS volunteers helped support United Food Bank by packing over 1,000 food bags to be sent to different agencies for distribution.
The Scottsdale office also participated in a fundraiser to support Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels, an organization that assists children with pediatric cancer and other blood diseases. During their annual Take Your Kids to Work Day, employees’ sons and daughters decorated tissue boxes to include in comfort packs for children in hospitals. Throughout the day, 60 tissue boxes were decorated and donated to Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels to be added to their care packs.
BGRS’s London office has supported a local organization, The Honeypot Children’s Charity, through different forms of fundraisers throughout the office. Recently, they participated in a fundraiser called Your Morning Buzz where employees purchased breakfast items and the money raised from those purchases was donated to The Honeypot Children’s Charity. This fundraiser raised over $130 USD. Employees also participated in a raffle event that encouraged employees to purchase tickets for a chance to win a chocolate egg. The raffle raised over $150 USD for the organization.
Meanwhile, employees from the Burr Ridge office volunteered at The Ronald McDonald House, an organization that helps families stay together while children are in the hospital. Volunteers visited The Ronald McDonald House to prepare lunches for families currently staying in the Oak Brook, Illinois location.
BGRS is proud of its employees philanthropic efforts across the globe and these local efforts are a reflection of BGRS’s commitment to helping the world’s youth overcome barriers to their success.
