At the Cohn & Wolfe annual Thanksgiving potluck our employees definitely prove that we are an agency that loves a good meal. We also recognize that Thanksgiving is not only about being thankful for things we have, but also about giving back to those less fortunate than us. This year, for the third year in a row, C&W partnered with New York's City Harvest for our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.
We donated hundreds of pounds of food to help feed our hungry neighbors throughout New York. Our staff fully embraced this initiative by donating everything from cranberry sauce to stuffing. Knowing that our donations made sure that a New York family sat down to an awesome Thanksgiving meal made our own dinners taste that much better.
Helping make children's Christmas wishes come true has also become part of the holiday tradition for C&W. Right now the organization is in full swing with its campaign for the nonprofit Hearts of Gold, gathering a playroom-full of toys to bring happiness to homeless children and their families. Hearts of Gold reaches out to 216 women and their 450-plus children every year, and we love being able to do our part for this great project. This not only satisfies our lifelong aspirations of being one of Santa's elves, but we also get to make some very deserving family's Christmas a little bit brighter.
The agency's “Every Wolfe has a Heart” year-round volunteer program implemented employee initiatives designed to leverage the personal passions and talents of our people outside the work environment. These after-work programs feed our creative spirit while giving back to the community.
To keep ourselves on track and committed to partnering with the organizations our employees truly care about, staff nominate the charities they feel most passionate about. A yearly calendar is prepared, with each month dedicated to a new program. By knowing what's coming in advance, employees can plan accordingly and select which months they feel most passionate about.
