The Stoneridge Gives, corporate gift initiative has awarded $4,300 in funds to three featured nonprofits for Giving Tuesday 2017, as chosen by employees! Feed My Starving Children received $1,500, enough to feed four families for one year. Churches United for the Homeless received $1,500, enough to provide a day shelter, services, and supplies for 23 people. uCodeGirl received $1,300, enough to provide access to all classes and programs for four girls for one year.
Throughout the year, each Stoneridge team member was able to donate $100 towards the charitable cause or organization of their choice in a Pay-It-Forward initiative. Organizations that received donations by November 2017 were narrowed down to three by a company vote, to be featured during the second part of the corporate giving campaign: Stoneridge Gives.
Stoneridge is delighted to contribute to these worthy organizations making a difference in the world.
