We at Eder, Casella & Co. believe that it is important to give back to our surrounding communities. While our employees and accountants regularly volunteer at various organizations throughout the year and we have quite a few active Rotary members on staff, we always select a few local organizations and make charity a company event! Click on the pictures below to view some photos of our most recent efforts to support these great organizations. Contact the head of our Volunteer Committee if you have an event that you would like us to consider for our next community involvement project: email@example.com.
Every December for the last few years we have gladly helped sort and wrap gifts with the good folks at the McHenry Sunrise Rotary. A perennial favorite because nothing brings warmth during the cold December days like donning your best "ugly Christmas sweater" and wrapping gifts for kids to ensure that their holiday season is merry and bright!
Everyone is Irish on Shamrock Shuffle Day! McHenry Kiwanis puts on this spirited 5K Run/Walk every March to help fund student scholarships. We'd like to say its all about helping the students, but the chance to dress in head-to-toe green is always a draw for us!
We're big supporters of our local Rotary International clubs here at Eder, Casella & Co. The organizations do such great work for their communities -- which is why we continue to link up with the Rotary Clubs in McHenry County and surrounding counties to help in any way we can. In the paste we've participated in the annual Woodstock Christmas Clearing House, Oktoberfest and Blues, Brews & Barbeque in McHenry.
Another perennial favorite is the McHenry Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning each year. This fun event was established by the Siman Family Charities in memory of Carlene Siman. All of the proceeds go to JourneyCare Hospice, who cared for Carlene in the last days of her life. What's better than helping a family to celebrate the life of their matriarch and provide supportive services for other families in need.
The Human Race in McHenry is another one of our favorites. We whole-heartedly believe in the amazing work that the local Not-for-Profits do for those who are in need.As such, we were happy to load up our families and lace up our runing shoes to raise money so that the programs that these great organization offer can continue and flourish.
We've been helping to prepare food packs for the world's hungry the last few years. No child should have to suffer from the pangs of hunger, and this amazing organization has designed packets of rice, soy, and vitamins to help feed children in third-world countries. We hope to continue to do this event with our employees and families.
Because blood cannot be manufactured, area hospitals rely on blood provided by organizations like Heartland Blood Centers for this life-saving component. We were glad to host a blood drive for both our employees and the community with this great non-profit organization. Not only did our employees staff the check-in table, but we also were happy to donate as well! Don't worry, we left the needlework to the phlebotomists.
We are so proud to be supporters of these other amazing organizations:
