Lending a helping hand – charitable giving

Charitable giving is a great way to connect within your community and with fellow coworkers. But more importantly, charitable giving helps people that are in need for one reason or another (job loss, illness, etc.). Charitable giving by definition is the act of giving money or other items of value to charitable organizations without expecting anything in return. That’s where Circle Of Concern comes in.

Their goal is to “provide a variety of resources that empower individuals and families to become self-sufficient.” Their main focus is to provide food for struggling families, but they do more.
