ALBANY, N.Y. – Dec. 20, 2016 – As 2016 comes to a close, CDPHP employees are celebrating a major milestone for the CDPHP Charity of Choice campaign. Over the past six years, the employee-based fundraising campaign has raised $301,647!
The American Heart Association, Northern Rivers Family of Services, the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity Capital District, Capital Region Sponsor A Scholar, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region, and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region have all benefited.
“We many have dedicated local nonprofits on the front lines offering help to those who need it most,” said Dr. John Bennett, president and CEO, CDPHP. “We wanted to find a meaningful way for our staff to give back to these organizations – something that would allow us to make a real difference in the communities in which we live and work. And so, the CDPHP Charity of Choice campaign was born.”
As we look ahead to the future, CDPHP has created a new vehicle for strengthening its culture of giving – CDPHP® The Foundation, which will help the company focus the Charity of Choice and philanthropic efforts, ensuring that employees and community partners have even more opportunities to support and serve our community.
In 2017, the giving will continue as CDPHP employees have chosen the Bus Stop Club and Family Promise of the Capital Region as next year’s recipients.
