The Spirit of Giving

Posted: Dec 20, 2016 by Marketing

One of the greatest aspects of working at Strativity is having the opportunity to give back and make a difference in people’s lives.  It allows us to connect with and impact those who need a helping hand.

It has become a Strativity holiday tradition to donate to charities, chosen by employees, on behalf of those employees. The charities that each person donated to this year range from education organizations and medical research to animal protection and more!

Read through to learn more about the charities Strativity’s employees feel so passionately about. You can visit each organization’s website by clicking on the corresponding logo.

Wishing you, your team, and your loved ones a very Happy and Healthy Holiday season, from the Strativity team!

adopt-a-classroom

The right school supplies can make a big difference. Most states are providing less support for K-12 schools than ever before. And over half of public school students are low-income. This leaves a big resource gap in many classrooms. Kids just aren’t getting the materials they need to learn. Every day they bring more supplies to more classrooms across the U.S.

“That’s why our mission is to give teachers a hand and provide needed classroom materials so their students can succeed.”
