A Win Win Situation

As the economy continues to cause problems for both companies and employees, one company is taking a unique approach to its business while providing a benefit for local charities. California Steel Industries, experiencing slower than usual demand, made the decision to re-assign its employees to projects at local charities rather than laying them off. The employees are performing a variety of tasks, including yard work and painting, for local organizations. In addition to the benefit of keeping its workers employed, California Steel will have the added bonus of a tax write-off at the end of the year.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>

Tough times have certainly impacted everyone. Another example of a company helping out during tough times is the Fueling Good campaign. Local heros are encouraged to submit their stories of doing good in their communities. Each month through the end of the year, one charity will receive a years fuel from CITGO. There are still plenty of chances to enter at http://fuelinggood.com
