Earlier this summer, we held our 10th annual fundraiser for Hope Clinic (www.thehopeclinic.org), a local nonprofit dedicated to providing free care (medical, dental, food, and more) to those in need. While their services are always necessary, they have become essential as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact millions of people. More individuals than usual are unemployed, increasing the need for food and other necessities. Since April, Hope has more than doubled its meal services, serving meals five times a week. They have also more than tripled the amount of groceries they’re giving away, with half the households receiving food assistance being new to Hope’s services.
Thanks to AdvantageCS’s deep connection to Hope Clinic---the organization was founded by Dr. Dan Heffernan, the late father of our Vice President & Chief Product Manager, Dan Heffernan, Jr.---each summer fundraiser is significant. The circumstances made this year’s fundraiser even more special. We are pleased to contribute $16,660 (which comprises AdvantageCS employee contributions and company matching funds) to support Hope Clinic’s crucial work. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone at Hope Clinic for all that you’re doing to help our community through this challenging time.
