At SWCA, we believe in helping our communities in a meaningful way, collectively and as individuals.
What inspires me is the feeling of contributing in a positive manner to the social and environmental fabric of our communities.
- BILL HENRY, DIRECTOR, SAN LUIS OBISPO
Over the last decade, SWCA’s award-winning Gives Back program has grown to reach every community we serve. Each year our employees participate in an array of charitable service projects. We volunteer our time and professional expertise, raise funds for worthy causes, and donate everything from food and holiday gifts for needy families to school supplies for disadvantaged kids and personal care items for shelter residents. Most of these activities are grassroots efforts that take place at the office level.
In addition, SWCA offers employees Gives Back Hours. This annual benefit gives employees 8 hours of paid time to use toward volunteer events, such as donating blood or participating in a park clean-up. SWCA also offers employees the opportunity to donate to charitable organizations in lieu of receiving service awards and holiday gifts.
Last year, SWCA donated $163,000 to 152 charities, and together, our employees dedicated more than 1,600 hours to various events and causes.
