To celebrate our 50th anniversary, Schlesinger Associates, launched an internal campaign we called ‘50 for 50’. During the month of August our goal was for our employees to volunteer 50 hours of their time to celebrate 50 years of Schlesinger. We are excited to announce that our teams surpassed the goal and reached over 210 hours.  At Schlesinger we are passionate about giving back to our communities and we are very proud of our employees for their contributions.

We wanted to share some of the events we participated in, and maybe you saw us there.

Atlanta – Our Atlanta team packed lunches with LiftUp Atlanta.
Chicago – Our team attended the Julian D. King Hatch Day, where they passed out school supplies and backpacks.
Los Angeles – Our Los Angeles team spent the day at Westside German Sheppard Rescue cleaning the facility and offering the animals TLC to help prep them for adoption.
New Jersey – Our team spent two weekends in Elijah’s Promise soup kitchen serving a healthy meal to the New Brunswick’s homeless population.
Philadelphia – Our team collected donations for Build-a-Backpack for the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia and then distributed them to those in need.
Phoenix – Our Phoenix team collected donations and prepared sack meals for Phoenix Rescue Mission.
San Francisco – Our team prepped and served dinner to 340 residents of St. Vincent du Paul homeless shelter.
Individual contributions supported the following charities Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Spotlight, North Texas Food Bank, North Texas Rabbit Sanctuary, New Beginnings Domestic Violence Shelter and New York Cares.

  3. I loved when I raised money for John Hopkins Children’s Miracle Network. I also let my young children come with me and see the joy of helping people. We had car shows and haunted houses and got to go to T.V. Hill in Baltimore MD. for the Telethon.

    1. The John’s Hopkins Children’s Miracles Network is a great organization to get involved with! They’ve been helping many hospitals for over thirty years. And it’s great to hear that you let your children get involved, it probably makes a great family moment!
