Prom dresses and dashing for pets
I was perusing Craigslist last night preparing to sell a few items when I came across a listing of prom dresses for sale. They were bright and sparkling, dripping fabric everywhere – and a number of them were originally priced at $600. In resale, they were still going for more than $300. I realized that a “night to remember” can quickly add up for families, truly reaching heights that may be out of reach for many.
Recently, a group of employees in our Middleton office joined with the Junior League of Madison for the organization’s All Dressed Up prom dress drive. The team helped organize boxes of dresses for the 1,000 young ladies from the area who came in to prepare for their high school prom.
The Mead & Hunt Cares Program helped sponsor the event by giving employees time off to participate.
Another program component – Team Up for a Cause – is being tapped by some of our Sacramento employees, who are preparing to run the 24th Annual Sacramento SPCA Doggy Dash. Donations will be used to help with foster care expenses, microchipping animals, sending kids to camp, and more. The event takes place April 8 and donations are still being accepted. Go Mead & Hunt 5K9ers!
Next up: Our program will soon choose employee awardees of our grant program, which gives employees resources to use on a longer-term project in the community, nationally, or internationally. I am sure we will share the results here soon.
Take time to go make a difference today.
