Charity Begins in Colorado

Employees from ViaWest – a  Colorado data center company – gave even more donations than last year in the charity-giving program.  The program is for employees to give a donation and to be matched by the company.  Well, at ViaWest in Colorado, clearly charity begins at home (or at the office) since the average donation was $50 per person (made of cash and gifts). This is a staggering 60 percent more than the amount that was donated last year.

The donations were given to the Family Tree, a charity that gives services to people in the metro Denver area who are confronting difficult issues in the home like child/domestic abuse; financial problems, etc. As well, Family Tree donates to the Autism Society of Colorado, Servicios de la Raza (which gives culturally responsive human services to all Colorado communities in need) and MaxFund (a no-kill animal shelter).
