In keeping with our philosophy that good morale is fostered by teamwork both inside and outside the workplace, Optio Solutions and CrossCheck, Inc. recently offered employees the opportunity to dress casually in exchange for a donation to The Human Race on behalf of our chosen charity, Petaluma, California’s Committee on the Shelterless, or COTS, as they are known locally. See our COTS Thanksgiving video here.
Optio and CrossCheck employees responded by donating over $875, which will help feed, clothe, house and provide training for locals in need.
“I’m proud of our response to this unique opportunity”, stated Chris Schumacher, Optio Solutions’ President and CEO. “Being able to provide assistance on a local level is particularly rewarding. We look forward to participating again next year. ”
In 2011, Sonoma County held the largest Human Race in the nation with over 9,500 participants and over $870,000 raised for 200 plus non-profit agencies. Optio Solutions and CrossCheck, Inc. are proud to have been part of the effort.
