At HW Staffing Solutions, giving back is a part of our core. As we serve our employees and clients, we strive to do the same in our communities. Because of our mission statement of Dignity, Excellence, and Service, we created HW Cares. Our goal is to enact positive change in socially responsible ways.
Through HW Cares, our national team comes together to give back through a variety of corporate social responsibility and philanthropic programs. We work together to build better communities, engage and reward employee participation, raise awareness, and encourage social change.
Here are a few recent activities HW Cares participated in to give back to the communities we work in.
One Warm Coat
In January 2020, HW Cares partnered with One Warm Coat to hold a multi-state coat drive. As a national nonprofit organization, the mission of One Warm Coat is to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need. Coats are distributed to children and adults in the communities where they were collected. HW Cares volunteers encouraged coat or financial donations at multiple drop-off locations.
Thanksgiving Dinner Donations
In November 2019, the HW Cares team from our Cumberland, RI, office learned that 16 families at a local middle school would go without a Thanksgiving dinner. Our team jumped into action by asking family, friends, and colleagues to collect turkeys and canned goods to deliver to the families. Everyone was grateful to be involved in enhancing the holiday.
Adopt a Park
In June 2019, HW Cares participated in Adopt a Park. This community event provides positive programming to youth during the summer months when school is out. As a community sponsor, we provided juice, granola bars, and fruit snacks for more than 40 children. We also organized arts and crafts activities that involved designing t-shirts, making shark puppets, and participating in a water balloon relay race.
Annual Food Drives
In December 2018, our team held our 3rd Annual HW Cares Food Drive. Our company and many clients worked together to donate food to local charities chosen by the branch or onsite. The two charities chosen by our Bangor, ME, branch were Unlimited Clubhouse Solutions and HOME. Both charities focus on supporting mental illness and homelessness. Our Taunton and Brockton, MA, branches donated to local shelters/food pantries St. Vincent De Paul Society and Catholic Charities. Our RI branch partnered with one of our clients and donated to the Blackstone Millville Food Pantry in Blackstone, MA. Our Nashua, NH, branch donated to a local soup kitchen. Our Florence, KY, branch donated to HOPE Ministries, which provides clothing, household items, food, and resources to community members in need. Our NY branch supported a local outreach center called PRONTO, which focuses their efforts toward the Hispanic community in need.
