Life can get busy. We all have priorities and expectations set upon us. When these expectations start to pile up, it’s easy to forget to think about others, and needs outside of our own.
Here at NextGear Capital, we strive to make time to give back and help our community. However, despite our best efforts, we all need a reminder when life gets hectic, to make giving back to our community a priority.
To keep serving our community as a top priority, NextGear Capital once again participated in a No Excuses campaign during the month of March.
No Excuses is meant to encourage Cox Automotive team members to avoid making excuses as to why they can’t volunteer or serve within their community. NextGear Capital, along with other Cox Automotive companies, participated in this initiative to make a difference.
At the NextGear Capital corporate office, we organized several different volunteer projects for team members and their families to get involved with throughout the month. Through those events, NextGear Capital team members contributed –
$3,600 for Special Olympics Indiana through the Polar Plunge
50 blankets made for Project Linus that will be donated to Camp Little Red Door
10,000 meals packed for Stop Hunger Now
48 pints of blood donated to the American Red Cross
278 dog and cat toys made out of donated t-shirts for the local Humane Society
$27,709.64 worth of coupons donated and sorted for military families living overseas
9,392 pounds of food inventoried and sorted for Gleaners Food Bank
Collectively, NextGear Capital team members volunteered more than 1,500 hours in the month of March for 80 different organizations, locally and across the nation.
NextGear Capital team members are proud to have the support of the local communities we live and work in, and there is no better way to show how grateful we are than by supporting those communities in return. Thanks to the team members and organizations that made No Excuses possible!
