Fourstar’s Social Give-Back Committee Pays it Forward
Fourstar Connections Will “Help Make Tomorrow Matter” at Treasures of the Community Gala Event and Auction
Hudson, MA — (ReleaseWire) — 05/11/2015 — Fourstar Connections, a solutions-based contract manufacturing company, joined hands with the Treasures of the Community, an ecumenical auction committee, to raise funds for three worthy charitable organizations: Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), La Romano Mission, and First Church in Sterling, at its 9th Gala Event and Auction to be held on Saturday, May 16 at 5 p.m., at the Sterling National Country Club, Sterling, MA. IHN is a faith-based program supported by volunteers from churches and synagogues that provides housing for families in the Worcester area who find themselves temporarily without a home.
Fourstar’s Social Give-Back Committee is dedicated to identifying, connecting, and supporting community-specific needs. The committee found IHN’s program to be a great fit with Fourstar Connections’ mission of being an involved, positive force within the community. As a major sponsor of the event and auction, Fourstar Connections makes its presence felt by donating employees’ time, money, and auction items through direct solicitation from its business associates. Some of the donated items include a Snapper LT300 heavy-duty lawn tractor, Amazon gift card, Lowe’s gift card, and a Sahara restaurant gift certificate, among others.
Philip Holman, President of Fourstar Connections, is one of the founding members of the auction committee and currently is the chair of the auction committee. He said, “Fourstar Connections is built on two priniciples: to find a better way to manufacture with and for our colleagues and to serve the community for the greater good. We promote work-life balance, and for many of us at Fourstar, our involvement and contribution to charitable causes is a positive and rewarding extension of that. Through the efforts of our Social Give-Back Committee, we get to combine our collective resources and create a greater contribution to the charities we endeavor to support. We are always happy to hear from people in the community at large in regards to any donation they want to offer—whether monetary or in service.”
