Little Bit Honors Swinerton with Corporate Strides AwardContributor: Swinerton Blogger | September 14, 2015
Swinerton is excited to share we have been selected by Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center (Little Bit) to receive their Corporate Strides Award! In honor of Swinerton’s dedication to exceptional volunteerism, commitment, and ongoing support of the Little Bit mission—to improve the lives of adults and children with disabilities through equine-assisted activities and therapy—Swinerton will be presented with the award by Little Bit at their third annual Making Strides Community Breakfast on October 22.
“We are so pleased to work with the Swinerton team here at Little Bit,” said Jeff Nomura, Little Bit Interim Executive Director. “Their ongoing commitment to our organization has been exceptional, devoting time and talent toward making the world a better place for people with disabilities. The projects they undertake help enable us to fulfill our mission of improving the bodies, minds, and spirits of children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted therapy and activities. Also, for the past two years The Swinerton Foundation has become a generous donor.”
Swinerton is a proud supporter of Little Bit and has partnered with the non-profit organization during its companywide 2013 and 2014 Fall Giving Campaign. Initiated by The Swinerton Foundation—the company’s non-profit arm—this annual program provides an additional opportunity, beyond the Foundation’s ongoing activities, for Swinerton to support organizations throughout local communities across the United States. The Campaign also engages each Swinerton office in a friendly competition to see which location will earn the most points based on collected goods, volunteer hours, and monetary donations for non-profit organizations selected by Swinerton employees. In 2013, Swinerton’s Seattle-based team rallied together during the Fall Giving Campaign, earning the highest number of points out of each Swinerton division along with a matched contribution from The Swinerton Foundation. The extraordinary efforts of employees and the support of The Swinerton Foundation allowed the team to present a check of $14,725 to Little Bit. Continuing their momentum during the 2014 Fall Giving Campaign, the 21-member strong team volunteered over 251 hours, constructed two loafing sheds, performed numerous door installations, and completed various repairs throughout the Little Bit facility.
Special thanks to all team members for your ongoing support and commitment to this wonderful organization. For more information about the Corporate Strides Award, check out the official press release for details.
