When is a business not just any business? It is often understood of the positive benefits that any organization can have on a community by adding wealth with in a community through payroll and business operations purchases. Yet, it takes the caring of the business to provide a higher level of service to a community. It is not just any business when it takes the time to give back to its local community through community outreach programs.
Donations and sponsorships to non-profit organizations and local communities can give the opportunity to provide a vast amount of good. For an example with most food banks, for every dollar donated they can provide five meals to those in need. Those organizations who can also assist by providing meals for those in need, which lessons the demand upon the local food banks and other non-profit organizations.
Providing non-profits with donations and sponsorships provide them with the ability to assist the community with being self-reliant to those who would ordinarily not have a chance if they were left on their own. No matter if it is helping a struggling family make an important bill or helping disabled individuals becoming self-sustaining this service is critical to every community around the country.
Therefore, when local business provides financial sponsorships to these organizations it is to provide a hand up in the community that they live and work in. Local businesses are a great source of assistance for these programs as they are not likely to move away from the area and provide the workers with a great sense of connection with the community.
There are many great local companies that do this for their community, but a great example of one is Dulles Motorcars in Leesburg. They not only sponsor one initiative, but seven local initiatives that provide great services to their local community. I hope there are many more to follow in their footsteps.
