WHO WE ARE
Since our founding, Avatar Solutions has played an active role in the community by participating in philanthropic events and making charitable contributions to important causes. Our company culture drives home the continued importance of being responsible citizens both inside and outside of the workplace. In addition, we firmly support our employees' and clients' passion for giving back to their local communities. Together, we can all make a difference.
Below are some of the ways in which we have given back to the community.
In December 2013, Avatar employees worked with Heartland Alliance, the leading anti-poverty organization in the Midwest, to adopt a family and provide them with gifts and basic necessities such as winter outerwear, toiletries, boots, and children's toys. Heartland Alliance works with families who struggle day-to-day just to get by, many of which are unable to provide something as simple as a holiday meal or a gift for their children.
JPMorgan Chase & Company Corporate Challenge
In May 2012, Avatar employees participated in the 31st running of the JPMorgan Chase & Company Corporate Challenge in Grant Park. Charitable giving is an important component of the JP Morgan Chase & Company Corporate Challenge Series. More than a dozen of our employees will compete in the 2013 challenge.
15th Annual Aon Step Up for Kids
On January 29, 2012, several Avatar employees climbed to the top of the Aon Center, one of Chicago's tallest buildings, to raise money to help children and families served by one of our clients, Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Our employees raised $1,400.01 for the event.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America
