For ePlus, good corporate citizenship is fundamental to who we are as a company, and our global team is committed to making a positive difference in the communities in which we live and work. ePlus, its employees and its partners contribute in many ways to charitable organizations that support individuals facing challenges from homelessness and hunger to blood cancers and access to education. A sampling of our collective efforts, which include a combination of employee giving, corporate matching, and volunteerism, can be found below and is a source of great pride for our company.
Habitat for Humanity
We are honored to have had the chance to work in partnership with Habitat for Humanity on multiple home builds in locations across the U.S. over the years. Not only does it provide our employees with a hands-on way to give back, but it is a true pleasure to see the joy and happiness provided to families who need these beautiful homes.
GRIT: Girls Re-Imagining Tomorrow
ePlus and Cisco developed a unique program called GRIT (Girls Re-Imagining Tomorrow), to mentor young girls and expose them to careers in technology, introducing them to successful women to act as mentors and examples of what their future can hold.
A Healthy Dose of Gratitude
The doctors, nurses and support staff working in healthcare positions are always heroes, in our eyes. But recently, the challenges they have faced have been unprecedented and relentless. Working regularly with our partner community, we are able to provide hundreds of on-site meals and treats to some of the Healthcare Heroes working in different facilities across the US as a way to express our continued gratitude for all they do.
Be the Match
Our ties to Be The Match are strong, unique and inspiring. They are a customer we have proudly supported for many years whose sole purpose is to give patients suffering from blood cancer a second chance at life. Our continual fundraising efforts for Be The Match support donation logistics, including transportation of people and bone marrow to and from hospitals and expenses associated with transplants.
ePlus participated in the celebratory signing of the final beam of Harrisburg University’s new Health and Science Education Center. As a valued technology partner of Harrisburg University’s Security Center of Excellence, the Analytics Institute, and the Government Technology Institute, this latest project demonstrates their commitment to the community, students, innovation, technology and sponsors. ePlus is honored to partner and to support these endeavors.
Tech in Pink
ePlus worked with The Estee Lauder Companies on its annual campaign to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation – donating $10,000 and encouraging employees to spread a sea of pink across social media to raise awareness and funds.
