Our employees recognize the importance of giving back to the community. With their help, Synergy participates annually in giving to various organizations.
Thank you so much to all of our employees who donated to the Maryland Food Bank this year! In total, employees donated $2,000 which was matched by Synergy ECP’s $2,000 donation and then matched by an additional donor for a total raised of $6,000! The IC Community that worked together on this fundraiser will have raised a total of over $250,000 – an amazing result! In fact, the director of Donor Services at the Maryland Food Bank said that she believes this campaign has the most companies of any in the past and that the total contributions raised for a group campaign is more than any she is aware of.
This year, Synergy ECP got the opportunity to speak with Cal Ripken Jr. himself about the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, an organization created in honor of Cal Ripken Sr. to help guide the next generation and teach them valuable life skills, build character, connect positively with local law enforcement, and learn how to make productive choices for their future. Synergy ECP donated $1,500 towards their STEM program and matched the donations (dollar for dollar) up to $100 per person for any employee who donated as well.
For the past few years, Synergy ECP has been proud to support Wreaths Across America.
