Change for the Better is part of the long term vision of our parent company, Sasser Family Holdings, Inc., to serve our communities through impactful social responsibility programs. We have established this tradition to encourage voluntary support of educational, cultural, civic and community, and health and human services organizations. This program now includes local service days, which are organized at the business unit level, and include all Sasser employees.
Union Leasing participates in programs ranging from bi-annual, company-wide service days to individual, company-supported charitable efforts. Coworkers serve side-by-side for an afternoon, perhaps packing food at the Northern Illinois Food Bank for families that need supplemental groceries, or mentoring at-risk adolescents through ChildServ, or supporting Habitat for Humanity.
In addition to these outings, Team Union has made significant strides in the fight to cure multiple sclerosis since 2009. The enthusiastic group now includes dozens of employees, family members, clients, vendor partners and four-legged friends, all joining together on behalf of Walk MS. Their dedication has earned them a place on the list of the Top 10 Fundraising Teams in Illinois. We look forward to this event every spring, and welcome you to join us.
In addition to this tremendous group effort, many individual employees are passionate about specific causes that speak to them, but no one stands alone at Union Leasing. Individual efforts generate waves of support among our staff for any worthwhile event, and it is our policy to offer sponsorships and matching contributions when appropriate.
We feel that contributing to the greater good makes us a happier and more cohesive team.
