SFM Mutual Insurance Works Hands-On To Give Back 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Workplace giving isn’t solely about meeting CSR or company goals—it’s engaging employees by helping them give back to their communities.

SFM Mutual Insurance knows this first hand. For their second annual giving campaign with Community Health Charities, the company focused on giving employees the opportunity to work hands-on with the charity partners they support.

February is American Heart Month. Nearly 85.6 million Americans are living with some form of cardiovascular disease or the after-effects of stroke. Chances are, your coworkers are living with a heart condition or know someone who is. This February, start some heart-healthy habits in your workplace.

March is National Kidney Month: Celebrate your kidneys this month by keeping them healthy with National Kidney Foundation’s Tips on How to Heart Your Kidneys.

American Diabetes Association Inspires New Giving Campaigns

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two companies, Carman and Munich, started employee giving campaigns with Community Health Charities thanks to American Diabetes Association recommending us on their website. Be sure to talk about your partnership with Community Health Charities in your communications to encourage more organizations to join. The more we work together, the more we can improve health and wellbeing

Volunteer Toolbox: Max Straps

 

 

 

 

 

 

This month’s featured tool is the Mask Straps—they are used to improve the comfort level for patients required to wear masks to prevent the spread of infection or protect patients from infection. These mask straps replace the elastic band that comes standard on the mask. Patients say that flannel and fleece material feel much better against their cheek and cause far less rubbing than the original elastic band.

This volunteer idea, and many more, are available in our “Volunteer On the Spot” toolkit.
