AspireHR Foundation Celebrates the Continued Tradition of Giving
Plano, TX (December 30, 2011) – The AspireHR Foundation is proud to celebrate its continued tradition of giving.
2011 marks the fourth year the employees of AspireHR have united under the AspireHR Foundation banner. A corporate initiative designed to provide support to charitable organizations and to encourage volunteerism within the organization, the AspireHR Foundation sponsors several donation activities throughout the year. All employee donations are matched by the company. 2011 included donations to the Community Partners of Dallas' Back-to-School Drive, Toys for Tots, the North Texas Food Bank, and care packages for active duty soldiers.
The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a nonprofit hunger relief organization that distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods in 13 North Texas counties. This year, the employees of AspireHR, through the Foundation, donated over 24,300 meals, a 20% increase from 2010.
For the third year in a row, AspireHR will be reaching out to U.S. soldiers overseas with care packages to express our appreciation for their service. Each year, the care packages contain letters of thanks, the Aspire Bluebearies, socks, magazines, candy, hand sanitizer, puzzles, books, and more things commonly requested by our soldiers.
“AspireHR’s core values stress the importance of people and a natural extension of our focus on our people is a need to give back to the community, both locally and nationally,” said Joseph Hillesheim, President and Founding Partner of AspireHR. “While there is nothing we can do that is enough for what our men and women in active duty deserve, we think it is important to express our gratitude on both a personal and corporate level. Every person at AspireHR puts together a box to send. It is something that we look forward to and are proud to do as a family each year.
Preparations to send care packages to active duty soldiers still deployed overseas have begun; the packages will be assembled at the annual company convention in January.
