2012 Spectrum Charitable Giving Initiative
Written by Erik Whitton, Spectrum Enterprises
The Spectrum Companies has a long history of charitable donations to groups throughout the country. My proudest moments working for this company have come at our annual compliance symposium when Steve Rosenblatt presents checks to groups such as as the NYC Firefighter Widow’s and Children’s Fund, NYC Fire Department Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, and high school marching band members in New Orleans, Boston & Baltimore.
Starting in 2012 the Spectrum Private Monitoring Division has built on this important quality to include separate donations reflecting the work we do with affordable properties across the country. For every new property we begin working for we will donate $35 (the equivalent of one move in approval charge) to the following charitable organizations:
- The Fresh Air Fund: Providing free summer vacations to New York City children from low income communities since 1877.
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine: focused on helping children discover their potential and find their places in society.
- Open Door Mission: Located in Omaha, NE helping to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
- Preble Street Resource Center: Located in Portland, ME providing solutions to homelessness, hunger, and poverty.
We encourage our clients to nominate exceptional organizations within their communities for consideration in our 2013 initiative.
