AdvantageCS is family-oriented in more ways than one. In conjunction with being a family-owned company, we’re proud to champion causes that are important to our employees. One of the ways we do so is through our annual drive for Hope Clinic, a local organization that offers free medical care and dental care plus a variety of social services to those in need.
Coincidentally, Hope Clinic was founded by the father of our Vice President & Chief Product Manager, Dan Heffernan. It all started as a Saturday morning clinic designed to serve those without medical insurance. Over 35 years later, Hope Clinic is a highly-regarded nonprofit with a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, which signifies high organizational efficiency. Each dollar donated to Hope Clinic provides $4 worth of services including medical and dental visits and much-needed items such as prescriptions, baby formula and diapers, groceries, and hot meals.
This year’s drive raised $11,240 from employees and the company matched the first $6,500, making the total given to Hope $17,740. “The continued generosity of AdvantageCS employees is remarkable. We’ve been holding this drive for more than ten years and our people continue to come through,” said Cindy Twiss, coordinator of the drive. “We are delighted to support Hope Clinic and look forward to contributing much more in the years to come.”
