FluidEdge Social Mission supports past charity partnerships
June 24, 2016
From its beginning in December 2012, FluidEdge Social Mission has worked with local charities in their efforts to support our community.
Created as a socially-conscious extension of FluidEdge Consulting, FluidEdge Social Mission’s aim is to mobilize the time, treasures, and talent of the FluidEdge Family of Companies to achieve the largest impact possible on our global community.
To do this, the FluidEdge Social Mission Board (made up of approximately 24 FluidEdge employees) chooses a theme each year, and through careful research, determines three charities that fit within the chosen theme.
Throughout the year, FluidEdge Social Mission gives donations, sponsors events, and volunteers with the chosen charities to provide support for the organizations that serve the community we reside in.
However, even after the year is over, the relationships between these charities and FluidEdge don’t cease to exist.
“There is no limit to our support, and [oftentimes], we find ourselves so happily involved with [past] charities that we have continued to promote them year after year.” said Colleen Fusetti, co-chair of the FluidEdge Social Mission Board.
This year, in addition to working with our three main charities, FluidEdge Social Mission has worked to support Chosen 300 Ministries and Rebuilding Together Philadelphia, two organizations that we have worked with in the past.
On Saturday, April 16, 10 representatives of FluidEdge walked in and raised money for the Five Mile Walk Against Homelessness, which was organized by Chosen 300 Ministries.
According to chosen300.org, the funds raised through the walk went towards “Feeding over 2,100 persons each week, job readiness training, [and] construction of a training/transitional housing center in West Philadelphia.”
On Saturday, May 21, seven FluidEdge representatives participated in the sixth-annual Run to Rebuild hosted by Rebuilding Together Philadelphia, an organization that rebuilds and fixes the houses of low-income homeowners in the Philadelphia area. This year, FluidEdge was named a Silver Sponsor of the event.
