ACHC in the Community
ACHC is committed to giving back to the community through a variety of charitable initiatives.
Whether it’s collecting school supplies for needy children or ensuring local families have a full table at Thanksgiving, our employees are happy to pay it forward.
Mindful corporate citizenship: It’s what we do.
PAYING IT FORWARD: Eclipse glasses certainly make a nice keepsake, but ACHC’s Jeff Freer had a better idea: Donate frames from the company’s eclipse-viewing party to Astronomers Without Borders. The California-based organization, in partnership with Explore Scientific, will send the glasses to schools and other institutions in South America and Asia for eclipses that will cross those continents in 2019.
CHIPPING IN FOR CHARITY: Our second-annual charity golf tournament was a resounding success. After a drizzly morning, the skies over Brier Creek Country Club cleared and golfers were able to enjoy 18 holes of golf. We are so grateful to the many sponsors, donors, players, and volunteers who helped us raise $30,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, which provides youth mentoring, and SAFEchild, an organization committed to eliminating child abuse. A special thank you goes out to our Platinum Sponsor, Dependable Health Services. See you on the links next year!
Clean water: ACHC provided 115,000 bottles of water to the citizens of Flint, Mich., in the midst of that community’s contaminated water crisis.
Par for the course: ACHC held its inaugural charity golf tournament at Brier Creek Country Club in Raleigh, NC. The event attracted seventy-two players and 15 sponsors, including platinum sponsor ReCept Pharmacy. Net proceeds of $20,000 were split between two area charities: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
Full table: Employees participated in a Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit Dorcas Ministries.
The giving tree: Employees “adopted” 32 angels through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, ensuring that those children would receive new clothes for the holidays.
Food for all: Employees donated 125 pounds of nonperishable food and $325 in cash to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Anyone who donated at least $25 worth of food (or cash equivalent) earned a casual dress day.
Racing toward a cure: Employees collected $350 for the Susan G. Komen Triangle Race for the Cure. Two staff members volunteered at the event.
Back to school: Employees chipped in to donate $375 plus various school supplies for children served through Haven House Services. Haven House Services provides community-based services at at-risk youth and their families in Wake County. Employees who donated at least $25 in supplies or cash earned a casual dress day.
Giving thanks: Employees participated in a Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Lots of love: Employees provided gifts for 22 children through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Two employees “adopted” angels, meaning that those children would get new clothes as well.
Sharing warmth: Employees donated new and gently used winter outerwear for the Salvation Army’s Warm Hearts and Hands Coat Drive.
In good supply: Employees donated cash and supplies to benefit children served through Haven House Services. Haven House Services provides community-based services at at-risk youth and their families in Wake County.
