Community Involvement & Giving Back
This quarter we had the opportunity to prepare a full dinner to our friends at the Ronald McDonald House Charity! It's unimaginable the heartache and stress these families are under. In some small way, we hope the benefit of enjoying a home cooked meal will ease the burden, if, but for an hour or so.
In March, NYS banned the use of plastic bags. We purchased and distributed reusable bags to help our planet and to help minimize our clients' and employees' costs of purchasing bags elsewhere.
In addition to making a monetary donation as part of our Referral Rewards campaign, we have been busy over the past few months purchasing essentials and clothing for guests of the Albany Housing Coalition for Veterans Housing and Services.
We believe that change, even just a little bit, will make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. Each year, we choose a local charity to benefit by donations made through a coin drop and bottle recycling initiative. It was a campaign that started three years ago to demonstrate that Change, literally and figuratively, can make a difference. We are proud to announce that our staff has chosen the Schenectady City Mission to be the recipient for our 2020 Change Matters campaign.
The Mission's goal is to provide not only Help for today, but Hope for tomorrow. We want to help people who are in need right now by meeting basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. Providing these life essentials are at the core of who they are.
To raise awareness to their mission and ours, we have displayed a coin jar with the mission's logo on the front counter at our office at 1924 Western Avenue, Albany, New York. We created an account with Clynk at Hannaford in Guilderland for staff to return bottles whereas donations are held in account in the mission's honor. At the conclusion of 2020, the Schenectady City Mission will receive 100% of the donations made to our Change Matters campaign.
Mahatma Gandhi said "You must be the change that you wish to see in the world." We pledge to do our part and be part of that change - our world needs it. Please help our cause by sharing your "change", bottle returns and Hope for a better tomorrow for everyone.
We recently delivered our team's collected goods to the City Mission of Schenectady as part of our Change Matters campaign. We shared from the heart hoping that our actions create a ripple effect to give selflessly. During our efforts throughout the year, we try to live the Mission's goal "Provide help for today and hope for tomorrow." We at Ten Eyck Group are proud of who we are and what we do.

Winston Churchill said, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." In 2020, we aim to make a greater difference in the communities that surround us. Therefore, we have created a Referral Reward Initiative to collaborate with you, our clients. For every person you refer to us, we will give $10 (in recognition of you) to our charity of the quarter.
Our staff has voted and our most popular charities for 2020 are as follows:
1st Quarter: Albany Housing Coalition For Veterans Housing & Services
2nd Quarter: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
3rd Quarter: Capital District Humane Association
4th Quarter: New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence
Together, we can make a greater impact to help those in need. Thank you for being a part of who we are!
