It is Better to Give…

A company is part of its local community, even if its products or services are sold elsewhere. In order to feel connected to that community, companies must do more than simply provide jobs and pay taxes; they must somehow contribute to the broader quality of life.

Which is why, for the fourth consecutive year, PatientKeeper employees recently spent a morning working at the Cradles to Crayons (C2C) “giving factory” in Boston sorting, cleaning and packaging donated clothes and toys earmarked for Massachusetts children living in low-income and homeless situations. According to C2C, PatientKeeper’s efforts – working in the warehouse, plus a cash donation of nearly $6,000 – benefited over 900 children.

It is challenging for individuals and companies to decide where to direct their charitable giving – there is so much need locally, nationally, and globally. In the end, it doesn’t matter so much which charity is selected, but that one is supported. After all, both the Bible and science say it truly is better to give than to receive.
