MIRAMAR, Fla., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the World Bank, 6 million Haitians, or 59% of the population, lives below the poverty line. So Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., the leader in on-demand customer management solutions, has been gathering supplies and raising funds for Haitian relief efforts this holiday season. The Arise Community Action Team is a committee made of employees who believe in changing not only the way the world works, but changing the world.
Additionally, Arise was excited to once again partner with Harvest Drive Florida to provide groceries to families in need for Thanksgiving. We teamed up with 11 local schools in the Miami area, with a combined goal of collecting enough food to feed 110 families.
Arise employees eagerly joined in to collect food, nonperishables, and supplies for Harvest Drive throughout November. In addition to the usual food and nonperishables, employees bought much-needed but often overlooked household supplies. After this successful collection, the team immediately set to work on their third year of Haitian relief fundraising.
Most offices have a Christmas office party to celebrate a successful year and reward their employees for their hard work. At Arise, employees turned their Christmas party into a fundraising event. While decked in ugly Christmas sweaters, employees pooled their resources together to donate to those still recovering from the devastating storms in Haiti.
"Arise is committed to serving the community all year round," said Tinica Mullings, Community Action Leader. "As the holiday season approaches, we always look for ways to take a little extra step in sharing what we can to benefit others. We're thankful for our supportive team, and happy to have the opportunity to donate to both Harvest Drive Florida and the Haitian Relief efforts."
Plans are already underway to support several charitable causes in the new year, including Habitat for Humanity, Support the Troops, and relief for those affected by the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area wildfires. Last year's event saw Arise employees dedicating hundreds of volunteer hours and raising money for various causes in Florida and across the country.
