About

While there is an infinite list of worthy causes in our community, discomfort emerges whenever any need goes unmet. So rather than tether our corporate giving to a specific charity, the Get Comfortable campaign channels the generosity of many toward the greatest local needs.

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 have identified these nonprofits that we can invite others to direct their resources where they matter most. This is serving made simple.
