Replacements, Ltd. has an outstanding reputation as an organization that enthusiastically supports our local community, both with financial resources and volunteers. We proudly support our community in the areas of diversity, education, the environment, GLBT issues, health, poverty, race, and women’s issues. We view ourselves as champions of human rights, and we take special care to further the often neglected issues surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
Our financial contributions are directed toward a large variety of local organizations including the local chapter of the National Conference for Community and Justice, Triad Health Project, Greensboro Urban Ministry, Sickle Cell Disease Association of the Piedmont, American Heart Association, the Greensboro Human Relations Commission, the Human Race, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network - Greensboro, the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce and its leadership programs, Bennett College, Guilford College, the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and many others.
On a national level we have directed our contributions primarily to organizations working to end anti-gay bias such as the Human Rights Campaign, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, the Service Members Legal Defense Network, and Lambda Legal Defense & Education Fund.
We donate silent auction items to many local organizations. In addition, our employees are encouraged to be involved in many areas of the community. We have employees that serve on the boards of the local United Way, the Greensboro Human Relations Commission, the Guilford Green Foundation, the United Arts Council of Greensboro, the Triad Business & Professional Guild, the National Conference for Community and Justice, the Sierra Club, North Carolina Legal Aid, Friends of the Greensboro Public Library and many more.
Employees are incredibly generous with their time and money as they become involved in Community Affairs activities supported by Replacements. We have a Community Affairs Council consisting of 11 people who lead a variety of at-work events throughout the year. These events range from bake-sales for charitable events to food drives for the Urban Ministry’s food pantry.
Throughout the 2003 holiday season, employees contributed boxes and boxes of food plus funds to buy turkeys to feed families at Thanksgiving at a local elementary school, donated 225 stuffed animals to children in local hospitals, and provided Christmas to 80 children affected by Sickle Cell and HIV/AIDS.
Our contributions are primarily directed to local organizations which further our charitable giving objectives. For more information contact Gary Palmer, Assistant Vice President of Community Affairs at 1-800-737-5223 Ext 2243 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
