Our business is about helping people and companies achieve their staffing and career goals. During the past 10 years, the staffing divisions of C&A Industries have literally helped tens of thousands of people do this. It’s wonderful to work for a company where you can personally impact someone’s life so directly.
C&A also serves others in a variety of philanthropic ways. Employees have the opportunity to participate in programs and activities individually, with their co-workers, or even with their families, if they choose.
Just last week C&A hosted a pancake breakfast fundraiser benefiting the 2010 National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Nebraska fundraising walk. A total of $296 was raised with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to the walk thanks to the generosity of several C&A employees who personally donated items for the breakfast.
The pancake feed is just one of several C&A fundraisers planned to benefit the NAMI Walk, which is just one the many philanthropic events C&A will help support through out the year. Check our blog regularly as we’ll be updating the site with information about all of our community programs with information on how everyone can get involved.
I’m proud to be associated with a company that makes helping others a significant part of the C&A culture.
To date, we have 31 walkers signed up for the C&A team and have raised almost $1,900 of our $7,000 goal. If you would like to join our team on June 12, click here to sign up. There are only 84 more days until the walk!
