- Meals on Wheels – We are always looking for helpful hearts to assist in delivering meals to those who need it most – whether it be for those rehabilitating, shut-ins, or the disabled in our community. Delivery takes place on select Wednesdays during lunchtime throughout the year. Please contact Melody Niquette at email@example.com to help out.
- Save the date for Thrive 360 (formerly Million Meal Movement)) taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium on November 1st, 2016 to help pack meals for Indiana residents in need and also across the country.
- For information on any volunteering activity, questions, and ideas for future Community Service efforts, email firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to Ben Braun, Michele Collins, Anitra Lewis, Marietta Griffith, Maggy Kantz, Derrek Day, or Liz Kokosinski.
- We are approaching the last few months of our push towards the 50 @ 50! Campaign. Our goal is to reach 50% of the company participating in payroll deduction, hopefully by our 50th Anniversary date. American Structurepoint graciously matches any donations made, so your donation is doubled! Every amount helps the cause. Contribution forms are available by clicking on the intranet link or by contacting Michele Collins or Ben Braun.
