ATTUS Technologies Gives Back to Local Charlotte Charities
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ — ATTUS Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of regulatory compliance software and services, along with its employees, has donated both cash and material goods to local charities in Charlotte, North Carolina, such as Urban Ministry Center and Crisis Assistance Ministry.
ATTUS has made it a part of its business mission to support its local community. Its 2009 donations include cash, toys, coats and other clothing, as well as significant volunteer hours to area charities that help families in need, the homeless, and children at risk. “It is very rewarding to give back to Charlotte, especially as a company. Not only in providing hands-on help but also delivering hard cash that is desperately needed for real-world necessities,” said Tom Fedell, president and CEO of ATTUS.
This joint effort between ATTUS and its employees included opting for a different kind of holiday celebration this year. Instead of its typical holiday party, a much smaller event was held and the appropriated “party funds” went to two local charities that support underprivileged families and children. Crisis Assistance Ministry benefited from coats, other clothing, and cash which will help support eight families, while Kids First of the Carolinas received toys and clothing which filled the personal wish lists of 25 children in need.
ATTUS also continued its long-standing contributions to Hands on Charlotte, a local non-profit that matches volunteers to service projects. The company’s 2009 commitment was dedicated to Alexander Youth Network, a leading provider of children’s behavioral healthcare. In addition to a cash contribution, employees volunteered their time to spruce up the non-profit’s facilities by painting, gardening, cleaning and assembling furniture.
“We are very fortunate to have built a loyal customer base with our well respected regulatory compliance products and services. Our strong financials in light of the current economic conditions, made it both possible and imperative that we give back to those who have been hit particularly hard by the recession. It has been our privilege to serve our community this year,” said Keith Haskett, VP of Operations.
