The teams at NCS are proud to share with you our latest efforts in our NCS Gives Back program. For the month of January, the teams at both e-giving Powered by NCS Services and NCS Solutions dressed down and donated to take part in our monthly NCS Gives Back program. This program is just one of the many ways that we at e-giving Powered by NCS Services continue our mission to help those who make a difference.
This month our collected donation, as well as the company match, was sent over to the ALS Northeast Ohio Chapter to support the loving and compassionate work this organization strives to accomplish.
Founded in 1988, the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the ALS Association was created to give comfort and serve the needs of those living with ALS in the area. The Northeast Ohio Chapter focuses on helping local patients and families live with ALS while supporting National research and advocacy programs. Through their work with struggling community members, the ALS Association remains dedicated to their mission of exploring every avenue in search of a cure.
As the only national nonprofit solely dedicated to finding a cure for ALS, the ALS Association strives to cover all areas of need including; patient and community services, research, public education, and advocacy to provide help and hope to those facing the disease.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Though there are currently few answers about the causes of the disease, one thing is certain – those working to find a cure will never give up hope. Chair of ALSA’s Medical Advisory Committee, Dr. Hiroshi Mitsumoto, said it best when he stated, “There is no question about whether the cause of ALS will be found; it is only a question of when.” The members of ALSA embody this this optimism through the work that they perform daily in aid of those in need.
All employees were invited to participate in our program with a minimum donation of $5 contributed through our designated e-giving platform. This month, through combined efforts during our team fundraiser, we were able to gather $169.80. When coupled with the company match, we will be able to send a total of $339.60 to benefit the mission of yet another wonderful organization. There is no greater feeling than helping those who will, in turn, help others, and we’re excited to continue our efforts in the months to come. Thank you for sharing this exciting news with us!
