MemberClicks prepares for the holiday season by giving back (print)
ATLANTA - NOV 21, 2013 - MemberClicks continues a long-standing tradition of helping out the local community and the association world by volunteering and giving back. MemberClicks employees or "Clickers" made good on a years-running offer to volunteer at association events in Atlanta. Clickers volunteered at the Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) National Conference in Atlanta on November 12-14, where they helped check in and organize attendees that serve at-risk, runaway and homeless youth throughout the U.S. for their customer, Youth and Family Services Network.
The Obesity Society, another MemberClicks customer, was also able to take advantage of Clicker help with their annual event for Obesity Week. Doctors, medical professionals, and others invested in the world's health gathered at Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center to exchange information and learn from November 11-16. Information on Obesity Week 2013 events and Obesity Society can be found at www.obesity.org.
As part of its focus on serving the association community, MemberClicks has a standing offer to any association, customer or not, holding an event in Atlanta. Associations that would like a MemberClicks volunteer to help with their event can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In keeping with its focus on service at this time of year, MemberClicks holds several charity initiatives for its employees, starting with a Thanksgiving canned food drive. This year it benefits Save It Forward, an organization focused on students in need and their families. More information about Save It Forward is available at www.aliveministriesinc.org.
MemberClicks employees are also donating items for homeless and distressed young adults ages 18-21 that are often overlooked in the holiday season. Clickers are donating items such as clothing, toiletry items, and journals to young adults in need. More information on Covenant House is available at www.covenanthousega.org.
Clickers are also animal lovers so additionally they are collecting items for the LifeLine Animal Project. LifeLine is a local group that provides low cost or free spay and neuter service, pet wellness programs, and shelter aid. MemberClicks has a donation drive for dog and cat food and other pet needs such as treats, toys, and leashes.
The season of giving doesn't end with the New Year. On MemberClicks' ongoing volunteer participation, CEO Mark Sedgley says, "I continue to be blown away by the 'heart for service' that our team continues to demonstrate. We are very committed to serving both the association community and our local one here in Atlanta."
