About

While there is an infinite list of worthy causes in our community, discomfort emerges whenever any need goes unmet. Therefore, rather than tether our corporate philanthropy to a specific charity, the Get Comfortable campaign harnesses both the data and local leadership to resource the agencies meeting the greatest needs. (But how?)

After all, it is only once we understand the need that we can select the agencies doing the most to meet it. And it is only once we’ve identified these partners that we can invite our customers and business peers to concentrate their generosity around this pressing work. This is serving made simple.
