Community Hospital Corporation Tops $185,000 in Giving to The Salvation Army
PLANO, TX (Dec. 11, 2014) – Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) is proud to announce philanthropic giving to The Salvation Army totaling $31,600 for 2014, representing 100 percent participation among 56 corporate employees plus a corporate match.
A proud supporter of The Salvation Army Angel Tree, CHC first adopted The Salvation Army as its “charity of choice” 17 years ago when CHC was created, according to founding CEO Mike Williams. At that time, the company’s four employees together donated $750. All years combined, CHC has exceeded $185,976 in donations to the Salvation Army.
“Participation has grown tremendously over the years, but what’s important is that all of our employees want to share our success with others less fortunate,” Williams said. “CHC is not a faith-based organization, yet our organization is filled with people of various faiths who want to reach out and help make life easier and better for others. This aligns directly with our mission and core values, especially ‘Stewardship’ – which defines our individual responsibility to care for one another.”
CHC’s growth in giving has evolved to support the needs of The Salvation Army Carr P. Collins Social Service Center. Donations are earmarked for the Center’s purchase of beds, including bed frames and mattresses, as well as housewares for those individuals transitioning out of the program into their own apartment or home.
“We cannot take for granted what the comfort of a bed can mean to a family,” said Licia Lichliter, HR manager for CHC, who has spearheaded the program for CHC since its inception. Many CHC employees will also participate on December 20 in ‘hands-on’ distribution of gifts to Angel Tree families at The Salvation Army Distribution Center in Dallas.
