Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
The CHASSE Building Team kicked off the holiday season early by coming together for CHASSE-Giving — an annual giving event wherein employees volunteer together to help the local community.
This year, more than 60 team members from CHASSE took part, helping put together nearly 1,600 holiday meal boxes for local families’ Thanksgiving celebrations, according to a press release.
The boxes were provided to families throughout the days leading up to Thanksgiving via more than a dozen pickup points in partnership with school districts across the Southeast Valley and more to ensure all items would get directly into the hands of those in need, the release states.
“We work extensively in K-12 construction, both in new builds and renovations, ensuring to make true connections with the schools as well as its students throughout the process,” said CHASSE Building Team business development director and CHASSE-Giving committee chair Taylor Perkins.
“When the opportunity presented itself to create a tangible program to help students and families, we jumped at the chance.”
According to Mr. Perkins, this is CHASSE’s third year partnering with local school districts on this program but just one of the local business’ giving initiatives statewide. The award-winning general contractor has supported more than 100 organizations across Arizona by fundraising, donating, and providing sponsorships in excess of $4 million.
CHASSE also collectively volunteers, on average, 4,000 hours each year through company and individual opportunities.
“We want to make a difference in our communities and support those in need. We are dedicated to community welfare because we have been building to make a difference in them for the past 16 years,” Mr. Perkins said. “Everyone deserves to experience the warmth of the holiday season. CHASSE-giving seeks to provide a means for our entire team to collectively make a positive impact as well as spread gratitude and kindness to those who may face challenges during the holiday season.”
