Corporate Volunteer Engagement:
Ernestine's ‘Virtual Lunch & Learn’
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Ernestine’s is currently not accepting any corporate volunteers at the shelter. Instead, the shelter offers a virtual volunteer engagement opportunity for our corporate partners.
Ernestine’s ‘Virtual Lunch & Learn’ is an opportunity for your corporate team to learn about the risks and realities of gender-based violence and the work Ernestine’s does in that sector to support women and children fleeing abuse. The event will include an educational presentation by one of our shelter representatives, a Q&A session, and more.
Corporations and small businesses alike recognize today that contributing to the communities where they operate and where their employees live and work is no longer just a question of good corporate social responsibility. Employees, especially the next generation of employees, care about an employers’ track record, and about the social and environmental impact of the company they work for.
Enhance your corporate social responsibility activities through a one-hour live and virtual ‘Lunch & Learn’ session! This corporate event is a great team-building opportunity for teams and departments to take a break from their day-to-day work responsibilities and give back to the community, with options to fundraise and/or collect much-needed donation kits and supplies for shelter clients.
Ernestine’s relies on the generosity of our corporate partners; we encourage all corporate groups to contribute a program donation of $100 per person to help us raise much-needed funds.
