Our Colleagues are a generous group, and they support a wide range of organizations that help locally, nationally and around the globe. Each year, Colleagues are invited to nominate their favorite charities to receive charity donations for one month in the following year. The charities are selected by a random drawing, although the annual school supply drive to benefit our partner school always is one of the designated charity days. Another constant is our Colleague Relief Fund, which provides grants to Colleagues experiencing financial hardship due to natural disasters, medical issues or other calamities. Colleagues then pay $2 each to wear T-shirts on the designated day of the month with proceeds going to the selected charity. About 40 individual charities were nominated for 2016. Take a look at the charities that were selected to receive proceeds in 2016.
