Haws supports the community through charitable contribution programs

As we look back on the year and gauge our organization’s global achievements, we look a little deeper than the numbers to evaluate success.

Haws has a culture that believes in supporting the community in which it resides. It’s one of our core values – to be a caring organization. This is evident by the various giving activities we participate in throughout the year to engage and help our local regions.

H2018_CasseroleFundraiser_1aws has a unique way of participating in local charities. Every two years team members are responsible for nominating and then voting on two charities to support company-wide. For the next two years, each charity receives a $5,000 annual contribution from Haws, and throughout the year we hold numerous unique employee fundraising events to support these charities and add to the Haws corporate donation amount.

In 2018, we once again supported the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and, for the first time, the team selected local charity, The Eddy House. On top of the corporate $5,000 donations, Haws offers a one-to-one matching program for employees. Through our matching program, we’ve been able to donate an additional $1,000 for each of the two selected charities.

And that’s not all! On top of organized giving programs, our employees step up during times of need. This year, many of our Reno employees donated their Haws gift, a holiday grocery voucher, to those who had lost their homes in the Northern California Camp Fire. The vouchers were used to purchase dinners for displaced families.  In addition, we hosted a denim and clothing drive for the Reno Rodeo Foundation.

It’s clear that there’s no shortage of charitable spirits here, and in 2019 we hope to surpass those numbers as we continue to support The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and The Eddy House!

Haws Employees Continue Quarterly Fundraising for Local SPCA

Haws volunteers and CEO presented the local SPCA with employee raised funds on September 30 at the Haws offices.

During the second quarter of 2015, Haws employees hosted multiple fundraisers to raise over $5,800 for the SPCA of Northern Nevada. Recently, Haws volunteers ceremoniously presented the SPCA with their donation at Haws headquarters.

The SPCA charity was selected as one of four charities that employees would support during the year. Charities are nominated and voted on every other year and an internal volunteer group develops creative fundraising efforts to engage and incentivize fellow employees to donate.  Haws employees have already donated over $20k this year. Other charities include the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, ALS, Veteran’s Guest House and more. The SPCA relies solely on donations from our community.

If you would like to make a one-time, monthly or yearly donation, please visit spcanevada.org or call 775-324-7773 x204. The shelter is always in need of dog and cat food, bleach, hand wipes, paper towels and other necessities.  A full list of items is available online.
