More than 100 Gifts Collected for Salvation Army Angel Tree
Omaha, Neb. (Dec. 17, 2014) – Employees at CQuence Health Group collected more than 100 toys and nearly $1,000 in total cash donations to fulfill gift requests and provide holiday support for needy families and children.
The effort was part of the companies’ annual Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree program, which provides clothing, special-needs gifts and other wish list items to kids and senior citizens experiencing financial hardship. Participation in the Angel Tree program has become an annual event at CQuence and is a part of a larger, internal commitment to volunteerism and helping others through its “CQuence Cares” committee.
Mike Cassling, president and CEO for CQuence Health Group, is a member of the National Salvation Army Advisory Board and has served locally with the organization for many years. His commitment to helping those less fortunate is a tradition carried out all year long by those who work at the Omaha-based company, which includes partner organizations Cassling and Ensocare.
“I continue to be impressed by and proud of our employees’ generosity,” Cassling said. “Our companies enjoy a culture of giving back to the community and it is heartening to see it played out year after year throughout the many events arranged by CQuence, Cassling and Ensocare staff.”
Additional holiday giving events were organized by the companies’ employees, and included 12 hours of volunteer bell ringing, from which $220.80 was collected for Salvation Army programs and services. More than 50 staff members also pledged to walk 15 minutes as part of a CQuence Wellness Committee stress reduction initiative in return for a $250 corporate donation to the Salvation Army. Finally, employees opted to forego December’s allotment of healthy snacks provided to them as a Wellness program benefit. Instead, $500 will be added to the Salvation Army donation totals.
