Engaging in community service and supporting initiatives that care for individuals in need is an important part of our HCP culture. Created in 2017, our Employee Activities Committee works to identify charities that need support — and together with our HCP team members gather donations, collect supplies and raise awareness for the chosen cause.
The spirit of our HCP team is reflected in our varied events, and as a result has a great impact on the recipients of our efforts. We have been fortunate to share our expertise, fundraising, and care-giving – and in return, experience gratitude and pride in our company’s philanthropic approach to care for our members and others in the communities we serve.
Some of the charities that are close to our hearts include:
Department of Social Services – Adopt-a Family: HCP was matched with a family of 5, a mother with 4 children between the ages of 3-8 years old. Through our giving tree and basket raffles, we raised over $2,000 and provided the family with a new bunk bed, outfits, shoes, games, and gift cards to local stores.
Sunrise Day Camp: HCP staff laughed together at a comedy event held to raise funds for the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. Over $1,750 was donated to the Sunrise Association, whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer.
Marcum Workplace Challenge: A 3.5 mile run/walk for charity. Beneficiaries of our charitable contributions are distributed among Long Island non-profits for children and animals.
Additional charities that we work with include:
Other groups include: New York Blood Center, Walgreens’Red Nose Day to end Childhood Poverty, Thiessens Children’s Foundation – Back to School Drive, St. Baldrick’s Foundation
HCP’s Employee Appreciation Block Party: To honor our employees.
Our annual blood drive for the American Red Cross – helping to ensure blood is available for patients in our communities.
St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Pediatric Cancer: Shaving heads to raise money on behalf of pediatric cancer research.
Marcum Workplace Challenge 2019: Employees joined in the 3.5 mile run-walk to raise funds on behalf of Long Island charities.
Pajama Program – Providing warm pajamas and new books to children in the community that need it the most.
