SOLitude Lake Management celebrates Creating a Better World in 2013

Jan 17, 2014

Through its corporate volunteering and outreach program, The SOLution, SOLitude Lake Management announced a banner year in 2013 for volunteering, outreach, donations and partnering with key organizations which share their passion for creating a better world. The company recorded 798 hours of individual volunteering, donated $21,540 in cash and goods, supported over 2,225 under resourced families, recycled 15,960 pounds of paper, plastics, and cardboard, and supported over 20 causes.

During the program's second year, the SOLitude staff increased their volunteering hours by 127 percent. SOLitude also donated $5,000 more in goods and services compared to 2012.

“Our goal going into 2013 was to get more people involved in the initiatives we started in 2012 and to look for opportunities to do even more for our local communities,” said Tracy King, SOLitude's director of marketing. “We found that the enthusiasm we cultivated last year was contagious to our vendor partners as well. We were honored to have several key partners join us and support our volunteer and outreach efforts this year.”

SOLitude also grew both of its holiday giving programs, Little Gobblers and HOLiday Cheer. The Little Gobblers program donated and delivered more than $2,600 in turkeys and grocery store gift cards to underprivileged families from 10 elementary and middle schools throughout the East Coast for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The SOLution is a company-wide program that encourages the company and all employees to strive to create a better world through volunteerism, community outreach, sustainability and environmental consciousness.
