We are proud to announce that Lauren Choiniere, our promotional project manager, has recently been named as the new chairperson of the Philanthropy Committee for the Chesapeake Promotional Products Association (CPPA), a non-profit trade association that connects and educates more than 200 promotional product manufacturing firms throughout Maryland Northern Virginia, and Southern Delaware.
Lauren’s involvement in the committee will allow her to utilize the resources and manpower of CPPA to benefit local non-profits. Lauren will be primarily working with Sarah’s House, a local homeless shelter, and Comfort Cases, an organization that provides backpacks and suitcases filled with essential items to children in foster care.
Upcoming service projects include:
- A service day making meals for the residents of Sarah’s Houses (Summer 2019)
- A service day packing bags and donation drive for foster children as part of Comfort Cases (Fall 2019)
The first event will be a donation drive for the youth program at Sarah’s House to collect items for their summer day camp and sleep-away camp. We will be hosting a donation drive for those needed summer camp items here at Millennium from June 17-28. A box will be at the front desk to collect donated items. You can help make a difference by fulfilling items on their wish list such as:
- Drawstring backpacks
- Lunch cooler bags
- Reusable water bottles
- Flip flops/water socks
- Rubber duckies/water toys for the water table
- Battery operated portable fans
- Beach towels
- Duffel bags
You can also make a donation by personal check or sign up for a donation online here.
We are so proud of Lauren for getting involved in her business community to give back! Please contact us to learn more or get involved.
