Our Commitment to Community
We live and work in amazing communities, full of creative, compassionate individuals and breathtaking natural beauty. Taking care of those treasures—and the organizations that preserve and protect them—matters a great deal to the Connection family. Our social responsibility program, Connection Cares, empowers employees to make a difference—both within our communities and our company. Building on Connection’s inclusive culture and longstanding history of employee volunteerism, this initiative formalizes the company’s community engagement, sustainability, and diversity and inclusion efforts into one cohesive program for all offices. Whether it’s supporting the arts, the environment, charities, or friends, neighbors, and coworkers, our employees lead the way with volunteerism and a commitment to community that make us proud to call Connection home. It’s who we are as a company—and, more importantly, who our employees are as people.

Supporting Food Banks During COVID-19
When local food banks reached out to let us know they were having trouble keeping shelves stocked with nutritious meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, there was only one thing to do—fill those shelves up! Our employees stepped up to the challenge in a big way. Responding to our Connection Cares month-long campaign, we helped provide more than 68,000 healthy meals to those in need.
Even in these trying times, it’s easy to lose sight of how fortunate we are. A shared meal with loved ones somehow seems to mean more today than it did just a few short months ago. Meals are a time to reflect, to appreciate what we have, and—most importantly—to keep ourselves healthy. Everyone should have access to enjoyable, nutritious food, but that’s not always the case.

This Is Our Connection.
Distance may change how we work, but it doesn’t change who we are and how we find connection. Our world shifted rapidly around us, and suddenly our teams were miles apart. We know that by staying at home and social distancing, we’re flattening the curve and helping the brave people working in our hospitals while also easing the burden on our healthcare system. Isolation may be hard, but we remember that—in doing so—we’re doing good.
