McLean, VA—April 22, 2021 – CNSI, a leading business solutions provider in developing innovative health information technology solutions, announced today a $5,000 donation in food and face masks to seven food banks nationwide where its offices are located. The donations serve as the kick-off to “CNSI Gives Back,” the company’s new approach to aligning its volunteer and philanthropy efforts with causes that embody its mission and values.
Since the company’s founding in 1994, CNSI has enjoyed a strong history of giving back to the communities where its employees live and work, both in the U.S. and in India. With nearly 1,300 employees worldwide, the company seeks to have an even greater impact in supporting causes and organizations that align with its value to support improved health and well-being for vulnerable populations and serve the local communities where its offices are located. Under CNSI Gives Back, the company will focus its time, talent, and finances to positively impact the social determinants of health (SDOH) that lead to healthier communities and equitable access to quality healthcare.
“As a company whose very mission is to create technologies that support the health and well-being of individuals and families, many who receive Medicaid benefits, we believe in doing our part to support our communities and promote health access for all,” said CNSI CEO Todd Stottlemyer. “Over the past year, we’ve seen how the COVID-19 pandemic underscored disparities in health access and led to even greater need among the populations our clients serve. Through CNSI Gives Back, we hope to raise awareness around a more inclusive approach to health for all.”
Items included in the $5,000 donation to the food banks were based on items requested to meet the needs of each organization’s community. The seven food banks that received donations include:
- Mary’s Food Bank – Phoenix, AZ
- Capital Area Food Bank – DC, MD and VA
- Second Harvest of the Big Bend – Tallahassee, FL
- Greater Lansing Food Bank – Lansing, MI
- Utah Food Bank – Salt Lake City, UT
- Thurston County Food Bank – Lacey, WA
- Needs Inc. – Cheyenne, WY
CNSI’s recent food bank donation follows a company/employee matching campaign in December that raised $75,000 to support food banks in the U.S.
