A company that gives instead of takes

We all know I don’t like Christmas, but I do like hearing about companies helping out their surrounding community.
Cydcor Corporation is one of those companies.

From their press release (source here)

“December 11, 2008 — This October, Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, hosted Business Building Blocks, a weekend filled with philanthropic and training activities for soon-to-be office owners. Cydcor elected to sponsor the Boys & Girls Club of Venice to support the ongoing efforts of one of its local independent sales offices heavily involved in the organization.

As part of the weekend, Cydcor team members and executives volunteered at the annual Westside Champion of Youth Dinner & Auction, an annual fundraising event at Marina Del Rey’s Ritz Carlton for the Boys & Girls Club of Venice, where Cydcor sponsored a table. Through a lottery, ten Cydcor team members were picked to sit at the sponsored table and enjoy dinner. Others volunteered their time during the event that celebrated 40 years of service in the Venice community. Cydcor staff rolled up their sleeves and encouraged patrons to “buy for a cause,” selling auction items, tickets, delivering prizes and acting as hosts and hostesses. The dinner was a great success, exceeding last year’s earnings and raising $150,000 for the cause.

We are pleased that our team members were excited to have this opportunity to contribute to the lives of young people in need

“We are pleased that our team members were excited to have this opportunity to contribute to the lives of young people in need,” said Gary Polson, CEO of Cydcor. “We continue to make it our goal – inside and out – to donate our time and resources, especially to help people reach their full potential.”

“Cydcor’s support will help us deliver exciting educational programs to more than 4,000 boys and girls each year,” said Erikk Aldridge, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club of Venice. “Every single contribution will touch young lives.””

Pretty cool if you ask me.
