The holidays are a perfect reminder that it’s important to always give back when we can. At Bel Red, we’re extremely committed to giving back to our community and beyond all throughout the year. We care greatly about philanthropy and community efforts. From corporate partnerships and giving programs, to the volunteer efforts of our team members in the community, Bel Red and our people are committed to doing our part to make the Pacific Northwest a better place to live and work.
One such program we support here at Bel Red is the Food Lifeline, Washington state’s largest hunger relief agency. Only 5% of every financial donation goes to administrative costs at Food Lifeline. For every $1 donated, the organization provides 5 meals to hungry people. At Bel Red, we encourage both employees and customers to donate non-perishable food items to this cause. In fact, for every donation of non-perishable food items from our customers, Bel Red donates $1 to the Food Lifeline program.
We’re also proud to work with some partners and manufacturers that share this same sentiment. One such brand is Rheem, who recently extended a very successful philanthropy program called the Heart of Comfort Program.
The program, implemented at Rheem and executed by their employees, serves to help communities and citizens in need by supporting charities in the locations of Rheem’s sites across the nation. At the launch of the philanthropy program, Rheem also launched a new website to highlight the impact of Heart of Comfort and provide Rheem customers, friends, family members and the general public with information about how they can be part of the initiative. This community-focused effort has had a significant impact on communities all over.
“The Rheem employee family has always been committed to giving back in ways that benefit our own communities and those of our customers,” said Karen Meyers, corporate director, government relations. “Heart of Comfort allows us to unify all the efforts of our individual Rheem locations and bring them under a single, companywide program so that we can not only improve our current efforts, but expand and amplify those efforts. In just our first year of the program, we have watched our impact grow exponentially.”
