Some companies may even make monetary donations to match their employees’ volunteer service. Retirees may have these benefits as well. Contact your company today to learn if you are eligible to participate in a matching program.
If your company does not currently offer a matching program, please encourage them to make it a policy for the future. A simple call, and request, may help your dollars go twice as far to help Arizona’s at-risk kids and their families.
