CertaSite, a commercial fire protection and life safety company, announced today its latest community initiative by giving back to local humane society branches in the 16 markets where CertaSite has offices. Humane societies across the country depend on donations from their local community.
Many humane societies are at or near capacity and don't have the necessary supplies to care for all the animals in their shelter. Through this donation drive, CertaSite is encouraging all employees, friends, and customers to participate in an effort to bring attention to the voiceless, who happen to be some of our most vulnerable: animals. The goal is to gather 100 supplies at each location, including the Action For Animals Humane Society, over the span of the 5-week campaign totaling more than 1,000 animal supplies.
“I’m so excited for this initiative,” said Jim Palumbo, market leader. “Being able to support the communities, Action For Animals Humane Society, and furry friends, that faithfully support us is the kind of work we pride ourselves on. Our people have the hearts for this community initiative, and the commitment to show our communities that we are more than fire extinguishers. We’re here to offer a helping hand and provide a meaningful impact to our neighbors, and animals, in need.”
The CertaSite Serves donation drive runs from now until April 15.
This is CertaSite Serves’ third community initiative. Last year, the company collected more than 7,500 pounds of food and essential items in response to COVID-19. Over the 2020 holiday season, the company partnered with Toys for Tots to make the holidays brighter for kids by donating more than 1,000 toys.
