Convention Data Services Kicks off Season of Giving
12/14/2017
Convention Data Services (CDS) kicked off this year’s Season of Giving Program to help make the holidays a little brighter for people in the local community, industry and within the company. The initiative is part of the CDS Corporate Giving Program and will benefit the local Bourne Council on Aging Bridging the Years Program, the PCMA Industry Relief Fund and the CDS Help a Colleague Program.

The Town of Bourne’s Council on Aging Bridging the Years Program supports local seniors and their families. This program is designed to promote and enhance the social, physical and cognitive skills of seniors in a stimulating setting. It also provides an opportunity for their caregivers to have a well-deserved respite with the assurance their loved one is in a safe environment. CDS will collect donated items for gift bags and deliver the gifts on Monday, December 18, 2017 to the 22 program participants at the Bourne Community Center.

Through the PCMA Industry Relief Fund, members are uniting to contribute and provide assistance to their fellow members in the meeting and events industry who have been impacted by recent disasters. CDS has donated $1,000 and through the Corporate Giving Program will also match any employee donations, up to $1,000. One hundred percent of the donations will be distributed to aid areas impacted by the recent disasters (foundation.pcma.org/industry-relief-fund/).

The CDS Help a Colleague Program benefits the children of CDS employees and encourages those employees who may need some extra assistance to privately submit their request. Employees who wish to donate to help their colleagues do so by selecting a wooden ornament from a gift bag under the company tree and then purchasing an item to give as a gift. Requested gifts include children’s toys, clothing, books, educational supplies or art materials. The Corporate Giving Committee will collect and distribute gift donations confidentially to the employees.

“Making a difference in the communities in which we live and do business is part of our core values and corporate culture. Programs such as this year’s Season of Giving was established to create the opportunity for every CDS employee to participate, whether they work locally, in satellite offices or on the road. We believe it is especially important to help those in need during the holidays, and we’re pleased that so many of our employees enthusiastically support our holiday giving programs,” says John Kimball, CEO and President, Convention Data Services.
