Intradiem has participated in the MUST Ministries’ Summer Lunch program since 2010, providing lunches for children who don’t have access to school lunches during the summertime. While the adults are making sandwiches in the office, we have our own children decorate bags. This is our way to begin teaching the value of community service to our children at a young age.
This year Intradiem decided to spread our wings and branch out for a new community service project. We teamed up with The United Way of Atlanta to take part in their annual Shoebox Project; this annual campaign collects and distributes shoeboxes filled with basic necessities to homeless women and children in Greater Atlanta who often live without these basic needed such as soap or a toothbrush. Our teams had a great time getting creative to decorate the boxes with happy messages for those in need, while also providing thousands of necessities! Overall in just one short month we contributed 271 full boxes and an additional 3,727 single toiletry items that will serve our local community.
Intradiem employees supported the WSB Care-a-Thon for the second year in a row. Our crew volunteered to work a couple of shifts answering phones and taking donations to raise money for this wonderful cause. The News 95.5 AM 750 WSB Care-a-Thon benefits the Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Center of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 100 percent of the donations received during this 37 hours Care-a-Thon help fund children’s cancer research, fellowship, and family support at the Aflac Cancer Center.
Reminders of home make all the difference for our soldiers serving abroad, and sometimes all it takes is something as simple as an Oreo! Since 2015, Operation Oreo (and of course, the Oreo Olympics), Intradiem employees donated more than 1,400 pounds of Oreo cookies to the cause.
Food drives are a competition between departments to see who can collect the most food and other essential items for those in need. Participation in the most recent food drive was intense, with employees donating 9,500 lbs of food to two local organizations.
Our 2017 visit to the Carnival at Camp Sunshine, a week-long camp for children with cancer, marks Intradiem’s seventh year of service at the Camp.
Intradiem employees spent time supporting the Humane Society of Forsyth County (HSFC) in September. Our crew volunteered to spend four hours grooming, bathing, and socializing with the dogs waiting to find their fur-ever home. The HSFC is an independent, privately funded, non-profit organization serving the people and pets of Forsythe County. Established in 1975, the HSFC has adopted over 20,000 animals into permanent and loving homes. The HSFC is the largest no-kill, non-profit humane center in Forsyth County, GA.
H.E.R.O for the Holidays provides holiday gifts to children infected with or affected by HIV and AIDS in low-income families. For the last several years, Intradiem has sponsored deserving kids by fulfilling their holiday wants and wish lists.
As part of High Tech Ministries Serve@Work program, our employees have served at organizations such as FCS Ministries, MUST Ministries, Sheltering Grace and 7 Bridges to Recovery to revitalize neighborhoods, refurbish community centers, build playgrounds, install landscaping, and help children with homework and crafts projects.
