2017 Philanthropy Week Brings Out the Best at Intouch

By Penelope LaRocque | Category: Intouch Culture |

Another Philanthropy Week has come and gone, and once again, we’re proud of Intouchers’ generosity!

In Chicago, Intouch sponsored the Anti-Cruelty Society’s fundraiser, Pints for Pets, and Gilda’s Club’s annual comedy-night fundraiser, Night of a Thousand Noogies. Back at the office, Intouchers made pet toys, raised additional funds for the Anti-Cruelty Society, and collected hundreds of items for each of those charities, as well as the local Ronald McDonald House and the people of Puerto Rico, who continue to struggle following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

In Kansas City, we collected much-needed items – including toiletries, household and pet supplies, toys, games and nonperishable foods – and raised money for local charities Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Mercy Hospital and the KC Pet Project. Along with on-site volunteering, Intouch also presented checks in the amount of $10K to Children’s Mercy and Ronald McDonald House, as well as a $5k check earlier in the year to the KC Pet Project.

Our New York office had to postpone its philanthropy activities until later in the year, but we have no doubt their events will be just as successful.

“We are continuously amazed by Intouchers and their giving spirits,” said Jessica Snider, senior manager of social media and a Philanthropy Committee member in the KC office. “Intouch came out in full force to make our third annual Philanthropy Week a giant success for three very deserving charities in our community.”
