We feel our Prosio Communications team is at our best and happiest when we’re able to positively impact our community. Nothing puts a smile on our faces quite like potential volunteering opportunities, or hearing about how our efforts to make a difference have made a significant impact. As 2017 comes to a close, here is a recap of a few of our non-profit support efforts this past year.
Aly & Izy Foundation:
Gift Bags for Mother’s Day: In May, we dedicated one of our Teambuilding Thursdays to the Aly & Izy Foundation and it was for Mother’s Day. Team PC stuffed Mother’s Day bags for high risk soon-to-be moms on bed-rest at area hospitals. We hope the bags helped brighten up their Mother’s Day!
Aly and Izy Foundation Golfing for NICU Babies Tournament:
Every August, the entire Prosio Communications team supports the nonprofit foundation in holding its Golfing for NICU Babies annual tournament. PC handles promotional efforts, assists with sponsorship development, and of course, helps out on the course. With 130 participants this year, the tournament exceeded our expectations once again – all for a great cause!
Holiday Stocking Stuffing:
This holiday season, Team PC added a fun twist to the typical Teambuilding Thursday by assembling 150 stockings with holiday goodies, on behalf of the Aly and Izy Foundation. Completed stockings were delivered to the many well-deserving families with infant(s) in the local NICU. Stockings included candy, holiday themed socks for mom AND dad, lip balm and other fun goodies. We can’t wait for them to be delivered!
Whitney High School:
In the spring of 2017, Lori was thrilled to take advantage of a unique opportunity to help out a group of local high school students. It all started after getting word that students behind Whitney High School’s broadcast TV station, WCTV-19, were in the process of raising money to buy a trailer – an investment that would be utilized to move hundreds of pounds of video equipment to the school’s athletics games. While the students had successfully raised more than $4,000 toward their $7,000 goal via a GoFundMe page, Lori couldn’t pass up the opportunity to donate the remaining amount needed. What a perfect opportunity to lend a helping hand to those that are already working toward careers in the communication industry.

We’ve loved giving back to the community throughout the past year, and can’t wait to see what new volunteer opportunities 2018 brings for the PC team!
