The R&Y Difference: Giving Back

At Riley & You, we maintain a strong focus on our work ethic and staying on top of marketing trends. But we also believe strongly in giving back to our community and lending a helping hand when we are able. For the past ten years, we’ve been setting aside company profits to give away. We select our top client each year, give them a dollar amount, and ask them to spend it on items of their choice in the Samaritan’s Purse® Christmas Gift Catalog.

Each year, Samaritan’s Purse® sends out a catalog that categorizes how a donation can be spent. $15 helps a child learn to read and write in the poorest of countries in the world. $70 purchases a goat for a family in need of milk. $75 rescues a child from bondage and abuse. No matter the amount, the money is used in a specific way.

For the past ten years, we’ve been setting aside company profits to give away.

We love giving funds to our top clients and letting them choose how they are spent at Samaritan’s Purse®. One year, a client went home with the catalog, pulled aside his oldest child, and together they selected goats, freshwater wells, and other gifts. The experience was fulfilling for everyone: our client, his family, and our company.

Another way that we give back is by allotting volunteer hours to our employees. In addition to personal hours, we give each person a set amount of paid hours during the year to spend volunteering within the community: at a non-profit, soup kitchen, nursing home, or school. Again, this has positive effects on our employees as well as those in need. It’s important to us to make a difference in the world in small and big ways.
