Gaithersburg, MD – CNSI, one of the world’s leading business solutions providers with vast experience developing and delivering innovative information health care management technology, started the year by giving back to local communities. Over the past three months, CNSI has continued to focus its volunteer efforts on fighting food insecurity and hunger, an issue the company is particularly passionate about. In total, CNSI employees spent 125 hours volunteering for local nonprofits during the first quarter of 2016.
After formally integrating core company values into its business model through a corporate social responsibility (CSR) program called iCare, CNSI has more support and resources to build culture, processes and policies that benefit the communities it serves.
“Here at CNSI, we are committed to making a difference in our community and believe our values are the backbone of what drives our company forward,” explained CNSI Co-founder and Chief Administrative Officer Reet Singh. “iCare allows our employees the opportunity to create change that positively impacts our business, their families, and the larger communities around the world that we call home.”
CNSI began the new year on a charitable note, with the company’s top 50 executives volunteering at the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington D.C. The executives sorted and distributed food for hundreds of area residents experiencing food insecurity. They also participated in a “face hunger” simulation—a 90-minute hands-on activity and discussion that raised awareness and understanding of individuals suffering from hunger on a daily basis.
The volunteer efforts of CNSI continued in January, with eight CNSI employees proudly representing the company at the Martin Luther King Day of Service—a day when organizations come together to engage in service activities to honor the life and teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. Arriving at the Bethesda North Marriott Conference Center in Maryland, CNSI representatives put together approximately 200 bags containing hand warmers, granola bars and other items that were distributed to an emergency shelter.
In February, CNSI employees sorted food at the Manna Food Center in Gaithersburg, Maryland on behalf of Smart Sacks—a program that provides low-income families with food over the weekends when they do not have access to regular school meals. This is a service that CNSI provides to Manna every month.
For the seventh consecutive month, CNSI employees participated in the Family Market at South Lake Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland this March, where they distributed canned goods, fresh vegetables and other produce to roughly 200 families in need. Two days later, Tara Weyer, CNSI’s corporate social responsibility manager, appeared on a panel at the Corporate Volunteer Council of Montgomery County in Rockville, Maryland, speaking about childhood hunger, while highlighting the ways CNSI is working to combat it.
The passion for innovation that guides the business operations of CNSI also drives the employee desire to make a meaningful impact on the surrounding community. While the work achieved over the past three months has helped start the year, CNSI is excited to have a formal plan in place to ensure these efforts are sustainable throughout the coming months and that the company remains dedicated to hunger relief and creating positive social change.
“We are proud of the work and tremendous effort of our employees to consistently give back,” added Reet. “We are looking forward to continuing to invest our resources in improving the lives of those most in need.”
