Procurement Leaders Give Back to their Local Community
Calling home to Chicago and Philadelphia, the procurement and sourcing team at Source One support their local communities through a variety of give-back events and activities. Throughout the year, the strategic sourcing consulting team gather to lend their skills and talents to further the missions of area non-profits – including on-site activities at their facilities and hosting drives and events at our offices.
As a procurement consulting firm, team work and collaboration are core to our success in delivering spend management results for our clients. Community give-back activities are a prime way for not only fostering camaraderie as a procurement team, but allow our experts to make an impact in the lives of others.
Recent CSR initiatives include:
- Supporting local animal shelters throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania with donations and on-site care activities
- Partnering with the Philadelphia and Chicago chapters of a non-profit dedicated to fighting childhood poverty
- Teaming up with Chicago-area anti-animal cruelty organizations to provide toys for abused cats and dogs
- Volunteering to help train local K9 search and rescue teams to locate missing persons
