OP3 NEWS:
CSR Creates Social Capital + Boosts Bottom Lines

We know from studies that volunteering is good for morale, but did you know that it also fuels social capital and, as a result, creates corporate growth?

By developing valuable relationships and doing something for the greater good, employees create trust and higher levels of teamwork. According to Gallup companies with that high level of engagement are more profitable, productive and have highter customer loyalty.

Want to become more engaged in your community in a profit-centric way? Contact OP3 to learn about opportunities.

PARTNERSHIP PROFILE:
Medical Care for Children Partnership Foundation (MCCP)
The Medical Care for Children Partnership Foundation levels the playing field for children who live in low-income families and who do not have access to medical and dental care. We make sure they can go to school each day in good health, without being hampered by chronic illness or toothaches, so that they can learn and have the chance to grow up to be doctors (like MCCP graduate Jorge Ramallo)athletes (like MCCP graduate Eddie Royal), engineers (like Andrea Suarez), artists or whatever their hearts desire.

Give & Get Involved Recognize Companies that Care! Training & Resources

Animal lovers --the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FCAS) invites you to donate needed supplies (leashes, collars, cages, chew toys,towels) for their newly renovated and expanded facility on W. Ox Road. You can also purchase comfy new beds for shelter dogs and cats (and hammocks for reptiles) from their Amazon Wish List.

Greeters, groomers, walkers, and gardeners are some of the volunteer opportunities. Groups of adults or teens can help with monthly special events at the shelter or in the community. Seniors (age 55+) interested in fostering, adopting, or volunteering are invited to visit on Wednesdays when adopted animals will be spayed or neutered at no charge.

 

Kaiser Permanente, a medical care provider organization, offers free health care services to qualified children living in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church. They continue to work to improve the health care of the children of Fairfax. In addition to the 1400 children that Kaiser is serving, in early 2013 they offered 300 more slots of free health care services. Know a child in need? Refer them and see if they qualify for free medical care.

Locally their doctors, nurses and staff participated in MLK's day of service volunteering at the Annandale community health fair. They called it a "Day On" for service. These volunteers showed their commitment to the Kaiser mission and honored Dr. King's legacy of service.

Kaiser has demonstrated through its actions that it truly cares about the people of Fairfax. We salute them for their continued commitment to caring for people's health.
