Charitable Giving: Big Brothers Big Sisters
During the months of January and February, TrueNorth will be raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cedar Rapids & East Central Iowa. This organization allows for one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Based on the vision of all youth achieving their full potential, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cedar Rapids & East Central Iowa helps nurture children. They are committed to creating lasting friendships and supporting youth in the community.
HOW TRUENORTH PLANS TO HELP IN JANUARY
- During the middle of the month, TrueNorth will be hosting “Bean Week” to assist in raising funds. Employees can “Bean” a coworker, which includes an anonymous decorating of their desk with beans, balloons, streamers, etc.
- At the end of Bean Week, we will be hosting a Soup and Chili Cookoff.
- As always, you can count on seeing the TrueNorth team sporting denim the last Wednesday in January, as the office will be partaking in our "Casual for a Cause" day to help support Big Brothers Big Sisters.
