STOP. COLLABORATE. “ENLIST IN”:
APPLIED CONNECTIVE EMPLOYEES: Per our philanthropy policy, each employee is allotted 8 paid hours of philanthropy leave* that they can choose to use or lose each year. To help you out, we put together a list of charitable events below that you can participate in. If there are other events or opportunities you know about, just run it past Ed to be sure it qualifies and enjoy!
*Be sure to record your time in TSheets! To do this, simply clock in with a note labeled “philanthropy” and leave a few brief notes detailing the cause or event (what it is, where it’s at, etc.). Then just clock out again when you’re finished.
HOURS STILL UP FOR GRABS

Sara’s generosity, humility, and penchant for going above and beyond have more than earned her the philanthropy spotlight. On top of her greatest role of being a mom, Sara skillfully juggles her full-time work at Applied Connective with her “side hustles” at Kay Nicole Salon and the Albion Country Club—as well as a membership as an EMT on the Albion Volunteer Fire Department—and still somehow makes time to consistently give back to her community and those in need.
In addition to all the commendable non-charitable volunteering she does for school (class buddies, etc) and events for the fire department, last year alone, Sara also helped with the following charitable initiatives and programs:
- Donating her time for the Pheasants Forever Mentoring program
- Routinely donating blood to the American Red Cross
- Delivering Meals on Wheels to Albion recipients
- Packaging meals for students in need through Blessings in a Backpack
- Participating in our Game of Donations Food Drive
- Participating in our Santa Buddies nursing home gifting project
- Participating in our breast cancer awareness tee shirt fundraiser
- And donating her skills/services in makeup application to cancer patients through the BCHC cancer care program
Hats off to Sara for her generosity and kindness! Thank you for making it such a high priority to make an impact for people in need.
