PRLog (Press Release) – Mar. 30, 2010 – WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. (March 9, 2010) – Cydcor recently collected 50 pounds of trash and other debris when participating with Heal the Bay, an organization dedicated to making a difference in the quality of the Southern California coast. Cydcor was also the first corporate volunteer group of 2010 for Heal the Bay.
Eighty Cydcor team members combed Zuma Beach for items including small pieces of plastic, Styrofoam, bottle caps, and other litter, banding together as a group to tackle the shoreline waste. In addition to Heal the Bay, Cydcor made a monetary donation to the organization, demonstrating the company’s commitment to community philanthropy.
“We are excited to partner with local businesses like Cydcor,” said Natalie Burdick, Heal the Bay’s constituent development manager. “Their connection to the ocean and commitment to protecting it are important for building greater awareness and generating funds to support our efforts to make Southern California coastal waters and watersheds safe, healthy, and clean.”
As an example of Cydcor’s community involvement, Cydcor recently donated 27 large boxes of items, ranging from food snacks and toiletries to entertainment, to American soldiers through Any Soldier, Inc., an organization that helps nearly 100,000 American soldiers in all branches of the military receive letters and packages from home.
In previous years, Cydcor hosted a toy drive to benefit Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles during its annual corporate kick-off meeting. Cydcor also donated groceries and hygiene products to a Manna-sponsored food drive and helped more than 500 Sylmar families who lost their homes in the Sayre fire.
“We’re committed to making an impact on local organizations that have helped so many people in our community,” said Vera Quinn, senior vice president of operations. “Our team’s dedication, perseverance, and desire to succeed are key drivers in our business. I’m extremely proud of the Cydcor team and what we continually accomplish.”
“Volunteering for Heal the Bay was a fun and meaningful experience. It’s rewarding to know that through our teamwork we contributed to larger cause to preserve marine life,” said Austin Waggener, data management leader. “I feel very privileged to be part of an organization like Cydcor that has a passion for our environment and places emphasis on giving back to the community.”
