At Rogards, we like to say that our local commitment is about more than where we are. It’s about who we are. We feel very strongly about being involved in our community and doing what we can to help it to grow and prosper. One of the ways we do that is by supporting the organizations that support our community. From volunteering with not-for-profits to making monetary or product donations to several causes throughout the year, we’re always looking to do our part.
It’s in this spirit that we started Community Day. Throughout the year, we collect supplies that for one reason or another can’t be returned or resold. On Community Day, we invite employees from local not-for-profit organizations into our store to “shop” these supplies free of charge. It’s a small thing that we can do to help these organizations do more. As our friends at the United Way have said, “When non-profits don’t spend money on supplies, they can put the dollars they save back into their programming – helping them achieve their mission and help more people.”
If you work for a not-for-profit organization, we encourage you to join us for our second annual Community Day on Friday, May 6 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. You will be welcome to choose from a selection of FREE supplies, including filing supplies, paper, pens, and more.
A limited selection of chairs and mobile file cabinets will also be available. Chairs will cost $50 and mobile files will be $25.00. All proceeds from the sales of these items will be donated to the United Way.
