To facilitate opportunities for RegEd employees, families and friends to give their time, talent and treasure to service-focused organizations that work for the betterment of people, animals and the environment.
RegEd formed its Community Service Team in early 2012. Employees enjoy quarterly activities designed to improve the communities in which they live and work. RegEd and its employees contribute thousands of hours of time and monetary funds to the various charitable groups that RegEd supports through the efforts of the organization’s staff and the company-match program.
Specifically, RegEd supports nonprofit organizations focusing on children, animals, disease research and environmental preservation. These categories act as a guide when choosing which organizations RegEd supports throughout the year.
With a commitment to making an impact on the community, RegEd looks forward to strengthening its Community Service Team through the contributions given today and the causes supported tomorrow.
The RegEd Community Service Team is working to make a difference in 2015. RegEd employees have dedicated their time to make a difference in their community and have enjoyed volunteering for the following organizations:
Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina: Established in 1980, the Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for 30 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines) and Wilmington.
Relay for Life: The signature American Cancer Society, global fundraising walk designed to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease which has taken so much. For the fourth year in a row, RegEd’s Relay for Life Team has contributed their time to bring awareness to a disease that never sleeps.
In 2014, RegEd employees logged a total of 200 hours of community service and raised over $14,000. Most notably, RegEd employees enjoyed volunteering for the following organizations:
SPCA: Founded in Raleigh in 1967, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Employees took a weekend course on how to care for the animals and then individually donated their time to clean up after and play with the animals.
Relay for Life: The signature American Cancer Society, global fundraising walk designed to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease which has taken so much. Once again, RegEd’s Relay for Life Team raised the most money of any team at the local event. They also contributed their time to bring awareness to a disease that never sleeps.
Raleigh Parks and Recreation: Employees helped to build a playground at one of the local Raleigh parks.
Ronald McDonald House: Since 1974, the RMH network of local Chapters have been making children happier and healthier by keeping families together – giving them a place to rest and refresh. Employees helped to cook a meal for the families staying at the house.
Toys for Tots: The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The employees of RegEd collected over 85 toys for the local chapter.
