The Power to Give: Charitable Giving at PowerTech
At PowerTech, we believe success and philanthropy go hand-in-hand. Everyone who works here – from our administration team to our technicians and staff – is grateful for the support our communities have given us over the years. It has helped our company grow, create more jobs, and make us who we are today.
Now, it’s time for us to give back.
In 2019, PowerTech launched “The Power to Give,” the charitable giving division of our organization. Our goal? To inspire other companies to give and foster a culture of philanthropy throughout our organization. Giving should be the standard throughout all organizations, and we’ve made it ours. Our mission? To be very intentional with lasting contributions aimed directly at helping children across our communities.
What that means is this: We’re working with local schools to help kids have a better life through more opportunities for mental health services. Research has shown that good mental health is crucial to children’s success in school and in life, starting in grade school. Students who receive social, emotional, and mental support at school get better grades and more likely to be happy, productive, and healthy adults.
But let’s face it: Our schools have limited resources. There are not many opportunities to hire another school counselor, or even have a therapist on staff at all. Our work aims to help educators work with kids of all ages on how to cope with the ups and downs of life – and deal with their feelings and emotions in a positive, yet vulnerable and safe way.
It’s only the beginning.
We’re going to approach our charitable giving efforts the same way we do our business, with focus and intensity. Our ultimate goal is to make The Power to Give a self-sustaining entity that will help local children well into the future.
Many of us have children of our own, and all of us were kids once. Let’s do our part to help make today’s generation happier, healthier, and stronger.
