Paying it forward is in our blood. For us, itís critical to a happy, healthy work environment, another important way we support each other, our friends and families, clients, business associates and our community.
It might sound corny, but it's a prerequisite to work at Trio. Itís part of our company culture, and has been since the beginning. Call it karma, giving back, paying it forward, making a difference...we just call it the right thing to do.
We take part in many charitable and community activities, regularly participating in fund-raisers and benefit races, and volunteering our time with local organizations.
Some of the many ways we pay it forward:
- Each holiday, we donate to a nonprofit in honor of our clients
- We host Createathon every year
- We support and get behind causes that have a positive social impact, such as Save Veronica Rose, and give it everything weíve got
- Each September, we participate in the Trident United Way Day of Caring (last year, we painted the Charleston Miracle League facility)
- Each Christmas, we ďadoptĒ a family through the Families Helping Families program
- We sponsor many fund-raising events
- We avidly recycle, and try our best to reduce and reuse in our office
