EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- During its recent Management Seminar & Vendor Show in Las Vegas, Hudson Group presented its annual contribution, a check for $350,000, to representatives of Communities In Schools (CIS). Throughout the year, Hudson stores in airports, bus and rail terminals collect the money in countertop boxes that encourage customers to donate their spare change to aid the charity.
Noted Hudson President & CEO Joe DiDomizio, "Hudson has been working with CIS for five years, and we have tremendous respect for the results they achieve with young people. It's a great cause, and we are always amazed at the generosity of our customers in their support of this worthy organization."
Communities In Schools, based in Arlington, Virginia, is the nation's leading dropout prevention organization, surrounding local kids with an entire community of support. The organization serves 1.25 million at-risk students through nearly 200 local affiliates in 27 states and the District of Columbia.
