Client Services Incorporated (CSI), one of the largest employers in St. Charles County concluded its 2015 charitable giving efforts with two successful employee supported events. CSI asked its employees to take time out of their busy holiday schedules in November and December and give back to the community by volunteering on behalf of the Salvation Army. Setting a donation goal of $5,000, CSI employees were encouraged to volunteer two hours to one of four volunteer events: Wehrenberg Cans Festival, Wal-Mart Fill the Truck Toy Drive, Toy Town Distribution and Kettle Bell Ringing. CSI employees responded by volunteering 87 hours of their personal time to assist the Salvation Army efforts in St. Charles and St. Louis counties. Scott Lindley, Executive Vice President, had this to say about his recent experience ringing bells,
“To help support an organization such as Salvation Army, the least we could do is to offer our employees an incentive for working. For every two hours volunteered, that employee received a casual day of their choosing and CSI is donating $100 per hour worked, up to $5,000. We have far surpassed our $5,000 goal, thanks to the generosity of our employees.”
Also during the month of December, CSI employees from our St. Charles location coordinated a toy drive to help bring a happy holiday season to a local Crisis Nursery. We are happy to report that thanks to these efforts, over $492 and more than 7 large containers of toys were donated to this worthy charity!
