Avanti's 4th Annual Giving Week: Strengthening Communities Together
At Avanti, giving back to the communities in which we operate has always been at the heart of our mission. We believe in the power of collective action and the profound impact that even the smallest gestures of kindness can have on the lives of those in need. That's why, since 2020, we have been hosting an annual Giving Week to raise funds for local organizations with impactful missions, ranging from providing job opportunities to essential life tools and combating homelessness.
A Look Back at Our Journey
In 2022, we celebrated our third annual Giving Week with great enthusiasm and a commitment to making a real difference. With the generous support of our community and a special matching donation from Chairmain Doug Andrews, we proudly raised a grand total of $7,350. These funds were directed towards eight deserving organizations, each dedicated to a unique cause that touches lives in our local communities.
Over the course of three years, our collective efforts have resulted in raising an impressive $40,675 for causes that truly matter. It's a testament to the dedication and compassion of our team members, partners, and supporters who have come together to create a positive impact.
The Giving Week 2023
As we embark on our 4th Annual Giving Week, which takes place October 16 through October 27, we are more inspired than ever to continue our mission of supporting local organizations with effective and transformative missions. In 2023, we are placing a special focus on organizations dedicated to working with homeless individuals.
Homelessness remains a critical issue in many communities, and Avanti is committed to making a meaningful contribution toward alleviating this challenge. We firmly believe that by working together, we can provide support, resources, and hope to those in need, helping them find a path to stability and a brighter future.
