Bridge Gives Back in 2014 Holiday Season
North Kingstown, RI – Bridge Technical Talent, which has a long history of community service, donated $3,120 to two Rhode Island charities this holiday season.
The employees of Bridge generously contributed a total of $1,560 to the Rhode Island Food Bank, the Providence Center, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Bridge’s Partners, Joe Devine and James Wright, matched the amount, bringing the total donation to a total of $3,120 to these worthy charities. In addition, through Bridge’s annual food drive, the company was able to collect 412 pounds of food for the Rhode Island Food Bank.
“We created our matching program to encourage our employees to join in the spirit of giving, and we’re so proud to see them step up to support these great organizations,” said James Wright, partner at Bridge.
Beyond the holiday season, Bridge also gives back throughout the year through their bi-annual e-Waste Drives. As of October 2014, the company has collected over 24 tons of e-Waste to date and raised thousands of dollars for both the Providence Center and First Lutheran Church's discretionary fund.
2015 will bring more community service from the team at Bridge. They have plans for their next e-Waste drive on Saturday, April 25, 2015 and will continue to run community days, where employees are encouraged to take a paid day away from the office and give back through a charity.
In both 2013 and 2014 Bridge was ranked one of the top places to work in RI by PBN, and the company's community service focus has proven to be a big factor in employee satisfaction.
