CoreMedical Group is celebrating twenty successful years of healthcare staffing by giving back! To commemorate the 20th-anniversary celebration, Core has selected twenty nonprofit organizations to sponsor with $500 gifts. Our executive team hand-picked each organization from those we’ve assisted with our CoreCares initiatives over the past twenty years.
“When we started to look back at the past 20 years, we kept coming back to the charities we have supported along the way. Helping these great organizations again was an easy decision,” says Core’s CEO, Aram Hampoian.
Of the twenty organizations gifted are globally-recognized nonprofits like The American Heart Association, the Red Cross, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. But it’s not just the big names that benefit. Smaller organizations like Bridges NH, New Horizons, and Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter fulfills Core’s desire to give in our local neighborhoods, too.
Since its first incorporation in 1999, CoreMedical Group’s dedication to giving back has weaved through the company’s identity. In the early years, the company and its team members would “adopt” families from local elementary schools during the holidays. Staff would then offer gifts to the children and their guardians affected by socioeconomic disadvantages. From national disaster relief to local animal rescue, CoreMedical Group team members have contributed more than $725,000 of goods and monetary donations to support underprivileged communities near and far. Now it’s a matter of keeping the tradition going strong.
As the company grows, so does our desire to assist those in need. By launching quarterly campaigns and emergency relief drives, compassion for our communities stays at the forefront of our minds. Instead of maintaining an ongoing grant or fund, employees are invited to participate in CoreCares charity initiatives. These quarterly efforts serve the community in our backyard as well as more well-known national organizations, keeping the staff motivated and engaged in philanthropy.
Within the last five years, Core has also launched an employee volunteer initiative. From day one of employment, Core now offers 8 hours of paid volunteer time (VTO). Staff can participate in philanthropy that fits their schedules and personalities in person. While the program may be relatively new to CoreMedical Group, 61 employees have already put over 475 VTO hours to use. Whether they’re building homes for Habitat for Humanity or taking pledges for the Veterans Count “Make 12 Hours Count” Radio-Thon, the staff are always ready to lend a hand.
“I am always so impressed with my colleagues; they go above and beyond to help local and national charities. Whether it be giving up their time or money, we have no shortage of people wanting to help,” Aram added. “That selfless attitude is how our organization has continued to thrive for the past 20 years. Looking forward to the next 20 years and who we can help along the way!”
