RSW/CARES is the Philanthropic arm of RSW/US
The mission of RSW/CARES is to provide our employees opportunities to give back and to unite as an organization through serving. Serving others helps remind us what is truly important in life and is also one of the best avenues to unify as a team.
Each year, RSW/CARES seeks to give back locally, nationally, & globally. Locally, we partner with our city – the City of Madeira, Ohio – to help keep our community clean. Nationally, we partner with our states Foodbank to fight hunger during the Thanksgiving holiday. And Globally, we partner with Soles4Souls to help fight poverty throughout the world.
Feel free to check out our Facebook for up-to-date news on all our Philanthropy Events.
Philanthropic History at RSW/US
Each year during the Easter and Christmas seasons, RSW/US contributes time, talents, and money to charities such as the Ronald McDonald House and local churches.
In 2010, RSW/US partnered with Soles4Souls, an international organization that collects shoes for kids and adults throughout the world.
During the first two years of the partnership, RSW/US encouraged local area businesses and clients to collect shoes and donate money to the cause. For every dollar a client donated, the same amount was deducted from their next month’s invoice.
In 2010 and 2011, RSW/US collected approximately 500 pairs of shoes. In 2013, RSW/US increased its commitment to the program by including a local area Middle School, more businesses, and clients, and successfully collected over 2,000 pairs of shoes. In 2014, RSW/US created a competition among three area high schools, with the goal of collecting 4,000 pairs of shoes.
Every year in the Fall, RSW/US will host this drive with different area high schools and each year we hope to exceed the previous year’s goal.
It is events like Soles4Souls that not only allow RSW/US to do great things for our community and deserving people around the world, but it’s events like these that help bring the employees of RSW/US closer together – and make it that much better a place to work every day.
