Operation Backpack

Operation BackpackIt can be discouraging to go to school when you don’t even have the basic supplies in your bag.  This summer Biddle Consulting Group participated in Operation Backpack. This was the perfect  opportunity to give back to the community and help less fortunate children find hope through education.

The goal of the drive was to collect and donate school backpacks and supplies for students in Pre-K through 12th Grade.  Our staff collected a total of 22 completely filled backpacks!

Thank you to everyone who participated!

 

 

 

Project Angel Tree

For the second year, employees at Biddle Consulting Group participated in Angel Tree.  Angel Tree reaches out to the children of prison inmates helping to meet their needs. On a volunteer basis, BCG employees “adopted a child” and purchased him or her a gift for Christmas. These gifts are then given in the name of their incarcerated parents as a reminder that they are not forgotten by their moms or dads. This year, 20 BCG employees bought gifts for 20 different children living in the Sacramento and El Dorado Counties!

Criselda Cooper, a consultant here at Biddle, coordinates this event for our office. She had this to say about Angel Tree:

“I love being part of making a difference in someone’s life whether it is to kids, people that are homeless, etc. Angle Tree is a simple way of giving back and reaching out to the community – more specifically to kids whose mom or dad (and sometimes both parents) is in prison. The simple gifts that these kids ask for could make a difference in their lives by knowing that they are loved; this to me is what Christmas means.  My heart is happy knowing that BCG employees are overwhelmingly generous in supporting this ministry. This is something that I will be doing every year. It’s a simple way of making a difference.”

Thank you to everyone who participated!

Honoring Our Veterans

This Veterans Day we say “thank you” to those who served or are serving now in our Armed Forces. These men and women along with their families sacrifice greatly in serving both country and freedom.

Partnering with Starbucks to Honor Our Veterans

As part of a company-wide initiative to honor our veterans, BCG employees purchased Starbucks’ Veterans Cards. For every card purchased nationwide, Starbucks is donating to Onward Veterans – an initiative by the Shultz Family Foundation focused on easing the transition to civilian life and promoting veteran/military spouse employment.

"Thank you, Veterans, for your service!"  "Thank you, Veterans, for your service!"  "Thank you, Veterans, for your service!"
