Chevo's Charitable Givings
Charitable Giving in 2013
Jeans for Charity:
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS): "The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services. Our Key Priorities will ensure that: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helps blood cancer patients live better, longer lives."
Homestretch: "Homestretch is designed to address the root causes of homelessness for each family and reverse it. All of our clients have children under the age of 18. Homestretch is one of the few programs in the country with the comprehensive services to gather each family, address each dynamic, and enable permanent change. Homestretch families are able to achieve transformational change because they have, perhaps for the first time, the chance to address every problem in their lives with sufficient support to make swift and lasting progress."
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI): "NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community for hope for all of those in need."
LLS Light the Night Walk: This September we were drawn to another charity, due to the illness (and subsequent passing) of a colleague: the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk, held in October. We formed a team to walk in honor of this colleague, who had been battling leukemia for the past year, and raised over $12k. Chevo and its employees also donated to a charity fund set up to help our colleague’s family (the Patty Pollatos Fund).
Our fourth quarter Jeans for Charity ends 2013 with a second collection of donations for LLS, in memory of our colleague.
