GFC’s Campaign Week Spotlights Community Involvement
One of the core tenants of Gallagher, Flynn & Co., is that we must be engaged in the communities we live in.
Each June, GFC employees take part in a “Campaign Week” with the three-pronged goal of engaging the company in the towns we live in, spreading the love outside of our organization, and helping others in need. This year, through a combination of silent auctions and a no-pressure pledge drive, we’re raising money for:
- Spectrum Youth & Family Services: A non-profit that empowers teenagers, young adults, and their families to make positive changes through prevention, intervention, and life skills services.
- Mercy Connections: Founded in 2001, this non-profit empowers people to make significant life changes through education, mentoring, entrepreneurship, and community.
- WISE: Based in the Upper Connecticut River Valley, WISE works to end gender-based violence through survivor-centered advocacy, prevention, education, and mobilization for social change.
- Humane Society of Chittenden County: A pet adoption service with a mission to ensure that every pet has a loving home and that every pet owner has access to the resources they need to give those pets happy, healthy lives.
As part of Campaign Week, employees in GFC’s Burlington office brought together their families at a local park to have a color war (similar to India’s Holi Festival) and had an absolute blast.
