Corporate philanthropy is a hallmark of CVS Caremark. One example is the CVS Pharmacy Foundation’s focus on children with disabilities through the “All Kids Can” campaign, a five-year, $25 million commitment to making life easier for children with disabilities. The program supports nonprofit organizations that provide innovative programs and services in local communities focused on helping children with disabilities learn, play and succeed in life.
In addition to the foundation, CVS sponsors individuals and stores in charitable giving. That is, an individual who volunteers can get a grant or a store can receive a larger grant amount.
Also, CVS Caremark subscribes to corporate responsibility and encourages giving in multiple ways, including allowing managers in different markets the latitude to respond to their community needs. CVS Caremark strongly supports the foundation’s work, which has national partnerships with organizations such as Easter Seals. Such partnerships multiply the dollars and maximize the effectiveness more than an individual company effort.
Further, employees are encouraged to give to United Way. We believe it is important for other companies to give back to the community, as well, because the problems in communities are so large that just one company or organization cannot do it alone. Developing partnerships with nonprofit, faith-based and other civic organizations allows companies to increase the availability of resources exponentially.Hughie’s Audio Visual
It is our philosophy at Hughie’s Audio Visual to support and give back to the organizations and companies that have helped us grow. Whether in the form of equipment donations or monetary contributions, it is our way of saying thank you to those who have put their trust in us to professionally handle their presentation needs.
We also recognize that by supporting community projects and activities, we can enhance our community’s reputation and, in turn, help stimulate new business from which we all can benefit. Over the past few years, we have contributed to companies in the Southwestern Ohio and Northern Kentucky communities through volunteerism and financial support. They, in turn, have been able to help people in need, and for that, we are grateful.Duke Energy Convention Center
It is the goal of Global Spectrum at the Duke Energy Convention Center to provide our clients with an experience that goes above and beyond their expectations. Our commitment to service, attention to detail, ability to listen carefully and respond to every request will enable us to achieve this goal one event at a time. We are fully committed to delivering the highest level of building management and operations in the industry. We take pride in our facility and the community it represents and understand our role in bringing people to Cincinnati and helping them experience all the great things the city has to offer.
Although it originally opened in 1968, the Duke Energy Convention Center experienced its third grand opening in 2006 as the city of Cincinnati unveiled the results of the most recent expansion. At that time, Global Spectrum was hired by the city to manage all aspects of the more than 750,000-square-foot Duke Energy Convention Center. Featuring more than 750,000 square feet of exhibit, meeting and entertainment space, we are the ideal destination for your next meeting, conference, convention, trade show or banquet.
As part of its corporate responsibility programs, Global Spectrum is committed to reducing the use of natural resources and the amount of waste that results from the various activities and events that take place at the Duke Energy Convention Center. These efforts are part of a corporate initiative called the Global Spectrum STEP UP Program, which is a program designed to distinguish us as a socially and environmentally responsible organization.
Our efforts to develop a buildingwide recycling program to increase the operating efficiency of the Duke Energy Convention Center began in April 2008. As the program has continued to evolve and expand, we have developed strong partnerships with Hamilton County Environmental Services and The Recycling Group to grow our support and promotion of recycling. Since the inception of our recycling program, Global Spectrum has diverted more than 350,000 pounds (as of Dec. 31, 2009) of post-consumable material from the landfills.
