The betterment of our community starts with the individual.
- At Centro, we believe that we can make the world a better place. The future of our lives, community, and planet is in our hands, and we have the ability and responsibility to change it for the better.Our philanthropic organization, The Giving Tree, encourages corporate social responsibility among all employees. The Giving Tree promotes volunteerism with various organizations across all of our local communities. Our goal is to partner with a diverse group of charities to drive positive change where we live and work.Through a company-wide match program, The Giving Tree matches the individual contributions of employees to the charity of their choice. Centro also offers every employee a Change the World Day, which allows employees to take a day off to volunteer and give back, because the betterment of our community starts with the individual.
Habitat for HumanityCentro has been lucky to partner and build homes with Habitat for Humanity for over a decade. Many employees use their Change the World Day to assist with this effort, by joining together, lifting a hammer (or two), and have a lot of fun along the way. We’ve teamed up with with other technology companies to work on a project lovingly coined as “The House that Tech Built”.
Cross-Country EffortsCentro’s offices across the U.S. and Canada have organized dozens of charitable efforts through The Giving Tree. Whether it’s joining tutoring programs, packing lunches for the homeless, donating and wrapping holiday gifts, or sending 20,000 backpacks to schools and shelters—employees in each and every office across-countries come together to give back.
Giving back in GuatemalaA love for travel and adventure took a group of employees to Guatemala, and allowed them take part in the Unearth the World Program—a social enterprise that helps facilitate responsible volunteer travel projects and unique cultural immersion. We learned a little about coffee farming and left with our hearts full and friendships strengthened.
