Let's just say it: 2020 has been a wild ride for all of us. We have seen that many of the systems we rely on in our daily lives have been upended by the pandemic, and we have come to need our community more than ever to make things work.
We at Azurity are incredibly fortunate to work at an essential business that has flexed to ensure that we have safe and stable employment. Not everyone in our community is so lucky. In a 'normal' year, many people in our community face impossible financial circumstances when sending children back to school, and may students face embarrassment and instability if not properly prepared to learn. This year, many families face dire financial straits due to rising unemployment and simply cannot provide learning supplies for their students. In short, the need is greater than ever.
Our company prides itself in coming together to fill needs in our community and we are excited to partner with Catie's Closet to provide Massachusetts and New Hampshire students with new school supplies so they can confidently and safely learn.
This year, our community support will look a bit different than normal; in light of the pandemic and the social distancing practices that keep us healthy, Azurity will be making a cash donation to Catie's Closet, who will then purchase school supplies and distribute them to students in need.
You might be saying, 'OK, I'M IN. HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?' It's easy! You can make a donation here to help us reach our goal of $2500. And for every $20 donated, the employee will receive one entry into a raffle for a swanky sports jersey of their choice (thanks, Ciro!). Remember that you've got to put your name down on the donation to receive entry into the raffle.
We are so proud of the way our Azurity family bands together to give back and excited for you to join us in filling the bus!
