The Power to Give Back to The Community

We all care about our community, right? Although it’s true, The Power to Give is taking charitable giving a step further. We’ve been busy the last few months volunteering for causes important to the PowerTech team; groups that positively impact their communities in widespread, meaningful ways. This blog highlights four organizations we’ve been working with in the hopes of making the community a little better for everyone. 

Organizations We Love

  1. The 712 Initiative. PowerTech teamed up with The 712 Initiative to add a little light – literally and figuratively – to the parking lots behind Historic 100 Block of West Broadway.  It all started in November, when artist and Council Bluffs native Tyler Kissel painted a mural on the northeast wall of T’z Sports Pub.  Featuring “ENJOY” in large letters, the mural is a welcome sight for patrons socializing and relaxing the 100 Block passageway. The 712 Initiative is working to improve unused public spaces across the city. How did The Power to Give help? PowerTech donated the installation of festoon lighting that was hung over the walkway.

  1. New Visions Homeless Service. The Power to Give in December handed out gifts and goods to New Visions Homeless Services As the holidays drew near, it was more important than ever to lend a hand to families in need of help, especially men, women and children living in homeless shelters. “We were able to see all the families that we were making an impact on,” says PowerTech accounting manager Tara Vogel. The receiving families were so appreciative of what they were receiving.”  
  1. Thriving Titans. We recently handed out 425 backpacks of food to hungry families to help out Thriving Titans, the food pantry of the Lewis Central School District. In December, we dropped off 700 pounds of beef and chicken to the food pantry. The way we see it, every family deserves a good meal. “They had never had a meat donation to give to the families,” says Tara. “They should have meat to give through March!” 

The more we make, the more we give. It’s a simple philosophy that drives nearly everythingThe employees at PowerTech  do to help the communities we serve. Last year, PowerTech launched The Power to Give, the charitable giving division of the company. Since then, employees have donated time and money to organizations that are working to make our communities a better place. The PowerTech team hopes to inspire others to look for ways to give back. Let’s all adopt the mantra of “giving as much as we can, when we can.”
