Community involvement is an important value to The So Cal Group. This weekend, team members met up for their annual Volleyball Tournament and Fundraiser for Operation Smile! Friends and family also joined the team, and together they raised over $700 to benefit Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that provides free life-changing surgeries for children with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities.
The So Cal Group gives back! Volunteers teamed up with the NCJW in support of the annual Tools for School/Back 2 School Community Day. The event provided children living on or below the poverty level with the supplies they needed to feel excited, motivated, and proud to start the new school year.
The So Cal Group supported Red Nose Day again! The team had a great time participating in the fun-raiser to benefit children’s charities. The Red Nose Day Campaign raises awareness and money to help kids who need support at home and around the world. Red Nose Day is on a mission to lift kids out of poverty and has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. To learn more, check out http://rednoseday.org/
At The So Cal Group, when team members are not busy learning, or helping out clients, they focus on serving the community. Looking to make an impact during the holidays, the team volunteered at Grandma’s House of Hope for the organization’s Annual Christmas Party event on Dec. 20, 2014. Team members spent the day helping the less fortunate, in Santa’s Workshop. Grandma’s House of Hope, a nonprofit organization located in Orange County, continuously inspires others with their encouraging message and vision for the future. The organization offers three assistance programs to aid the community’s impoverished population.
The So Cal Group team members, eager for an opportunity to help, spent the day participating in the event’s two shops. Working in two shifts, The So Cal Group successfully offered both parents and children the chance to select and wrap gifts for one another. Excited parents and children filled Santa’s Workshop, hoping to provide loved ones with holiday cheer. The So Cal Group’s efforts allowed guests to feel welcome and built lasting relationships.
After the event, The So Cal Group’s, Lindsay Brogan explained, “Volunteering was both fun and rewarding, overall. “Working with the families allows us to recognize and appreciate the opportunities we’ve been given.”
Moving forward, The So Cal Group will continue their philanthropic endeavors, while maintaining their commitment to professionalism and integrity.
