Everyone here was really excited to be nominated as a finalist for the Community Impact Awards, especially after all of the awesome volunteering and charity efforts we put together last year. With this year underway we have bigger plans than usual for volunteering and charity. We’ve undertaken our own Habitat for Humanity House which is a huge plan as well as expanding our current workplace giving efforts.
What we need to kick off a year like that is a big boost to our confidence and inspiration to keep that spirit going through the year. That inspiration came for us on Thursday, February 25 when we found out that we were the winner of the 2016 Community Impact Award for Workplace giving! Here is our CEO, David Reiling accepting the award at the banquet:
This is so exciting for everyone here at Sunrise after the massive amount of time we put into our workplace giving program and how much our employees really enjoy giving back. It doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels though, we have big plans and we have to deliver, if you’d like to help, follow this link to our Habitat for Humanity project page: https://sunrisebanks.com/welcomehome
