Cheesecake, Coller Industries and Donations

Coller Industries prides itself on our contributions to our community. Donations to repeat customers make our work completely worth it.

With being the go-to specialist for all personal identification needs, Coller Industries enjoys donating name tags and other custom items to those who need a little bit of help. And, while we care about all of our customers, we love it when we have clients who feel comfortable coming back to us every year. Part of our community of caring means that we give back to the community.

Sherry O’Neill is the General Manager at The Cheesecake Factory Charitable Foundation. She said, “In addition to the 15th Annual Golf Tournament event to raise funds for City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Foundation works within The Cheesecake Factory’s inspiring and engaging culture to allow staff members the opportunity to give back to various parts of their community.”

The Foundation exists to fulfill its mission through enhancing surrounding communities’ well-being. This non-profit organization was created not only as a means to raise funds for worthy causes but also as a way to unite our caring and conscientious staff members in charitable causes.

O’Neill also said, “These continued donations help us facilitate an essential aspect of our event, identifying valued bidders. At the Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament, members wear name badges. These leverage communication, allow for ease of execution, and ultimately create an amiable atmosphere. This encourages members to return each year and continue to donate to City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center.”

“On the day of the golf tournament, every volunteer, employee, and attendee will have their own name badge,” said O’Neill. “The donation, which was kindly offered to us, helps to offset the cost of ordering necessary materials.”

3 Top Lessons Learned from Donating

There are many lessons to be learned from providing donations to our clients.

For almost eight years, Clyde and Gary Coller, the CEO and President of Coller Industries Incorporated have generously donated to Granite Education Foundation. The Collers give time and money to those in need, and each year they strive to give back to our local community.

We started donating to Granite Education Foundation in 2009 and to date we have given over $37,000. As employees here at Coller Industries, it is a delight knowing that our employer is so generous and giving to our community. And, each of these individual donations makes its mark on both the givers and the receivers. And each teaches valuable lessons.

Lesson No. 1:

“(Donations make) us more responsible in the community,” said Gary Coller. “Hopefully our customers appreciate when they see that we give back to our community.”

Well said, Gary! These donations not only make us more responsible, but they also make us more aware of the needs of our neighbors and communities. From needing name tags in school and other places of business to needing a helping hand to members of our community, one will always find Coller Industries in the act of giving.

Lesson No. 2:

We received the following letter and valentines from Granite Education Foundation:

Hey, Valentine!
Exchanging heartfelt messages on Valentine’s Day is a well-loved tradition. While the earliest Valentines were little more than hastily scribbled notes, today we can choose from thousands of varieties, each designed for a specific relationship in our lives. A hundred years ago, only sweethearts exchanged Valentine’s Day cards, but the practice has spread to encompass friends, family, colleagues and supporters.
This year, Granite Education Foundation and students from throughout Granite School District want to express our heart-felt thanks for your continued generosity and support. Enclosed you will find hand-made Valentine’s Day cards that our students created with YOU in mind. Additionally, please find enclosed a small edible token as an expression of Granite Education Foundation’s appreciation for your continued support and boundless goodwill.
In our opinion, YOU’RE AWESOME SAUCE, Valentine! Thanks for believing in our mission and for the extra boost you give kids and educators. We couldn’t accomplish what we do without YOU.
Thank you with all our heart!
Brent Severe, Chief Executive Officer
JeAnna Ellis, Office Coordinator / Donor Relations
Audrey Price, Finance / Operations
Erin Woodlief, Giving / Events Coordinator

Donating means that not only have we impacted the lives of Coller Industries employees, but also the lives of the children and teachers in our neighborhoods. So, no matter what we do, we are always aware that people are watching and wondering what we do. It’s never about the name tag, it’s always about the person!

And, last but not least, Lesson No. 3:

By believing in the mission of other organizations and helping them in their directives, we end up helping ourselves. Now, while this may sound a bit selfish, here are the reasons that isn’t the case.

By helping Granite Education Foundation with their needs, we benefit the lives of countless children. Which, in turn, helps their families. And that’s only the beginning of the chain! By paying our efforts forward, we are in fact returning to our community. And just look at the wonderful thank you’s we have received thus far!

We’ve learned from these lessons and we just want to say thank you right back! So, not only to Granite Education Foundation but to all those who receive our donations, THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU! We cherish all of our customers and their communities!

Donations, Donors and CYC

Donations are an excellent way of saying thank you on such a special day!

Coller Industries might just be your go-to specialist for all personal identification needs, but do you know how much we care about all of our customers? Part of that caring means that we give back. Not only to our local community but to all of our customers. We do this by giving donations of our goods to those in need. And we are happy to announce that we’re at it again!

California Youth Connection (CYC) is a youth-led organization that develops leaders who empower each other and their communities to transform the foster care system through legislative and policy change.

 

What is DAC?

The Day at the Capitol (DAC) Conference is an advocacy and empowerment conference for CYC chapters held annually in Sacramento. For three days Members and Supporters come together to participate in our signature DAC Conference. The Conference Planning Team Design and Attendee Experience Teams developed the 2017 DAC emblem-logo, slogan, theme and activities.

Jude Parker Koski, MBA, Conference & Training Coordinator, exclaimed, “Together this year, we are A Quasar of Voices: Unite With Our Force to advocate for Foster Parent Training and Support! I always enjoy working with and supporting the Conference Planning Team, and this time was no exception. It was an extraordinarily creative process and rich experience.”

Custom lanyards with a sewn finish are both inexpensive and professional. Customize each lanyard using many available options, including fastener type and color choices to meet every need. Use these lanyards at meetings, conventions, conferences and other events. Sewn Lanyards are perfect to get your name out there with professional branding.

“Thank you so much for your generosity to help make the 2017 Day at the Capitol wildly successful- from offering deep discounts to donating time, services and materials!” said Koski of the donors and sponsors.

We are grateful for organizations such as the California Youth Connection. We sincerely hope that all of our donations are something that helps our customers in their efforts in their communities.

Donations: Animal Care Centers of NYC

Coller Industries prides ourselves on our contributions and donations to our community. And we love bragging about our wonderful customers!

We care about all of our customers. And part of that caring means that we give back to our local community and all of our customers.

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC).

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in more than 35,000 animals each year. We are different from other rescue organizations because we never turn away any homeless, abandoned, injured or sick animals in need, including cats, dogs, rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, birds, farm animals and wildlife.

“(ACC is) relentlessly working hard… to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of pets and people in NYC,” explained Amy Bianciella, Special Events and Creative Manager, at Animal Care Centers of NYC.

Bianciella encourages everyone to “adopt, don’t shop” for their next loving pet.

Reusable badges are a versatile way to get a lot of name badges for a great, low price.

Mighty Badges are a great way to use a reusable name tag. The metal plates can be ordered plain or with a printed logo and names are quick and easy to add with the printable inserts. The Mighty Badge system is easy to use, as the three parts simply snap together to give you a professional looking, yet reusable, name badge.

Animal Care Centers received a donation of the white Standard Mighty Badge. Deluxe Magnets were the fasteners of choice. These strong magnets attach easily, even through thick clothing, while preventing holes and clothing damage.

Coller Industries loves providing these donations, especially when given to such a great cause. We stand by our customers and strive to help in our community. All of our donations are something that helps us stand out from our competition. And the best part is working with these wonderful people!

Donations: Neighborhood House

Coller Industries prides itself on our contributions to our community. Donations to repeat customers make our work completely worth it.

While we care about all of our customers, we love it when we have customers that feel comfortable coming back to us every year.

This time, Neighborhood House of Salt Lake City needed our help to keep their costs down. They are a wonderful organization and they work with a lot of people. Constantly needing to identify these individuals can get expensive.

Coller Industries donated name tags for Neighborhood House staff, board and committee members which will help make them more visible during events,” said Breighlin Johanson, Development Coordinator for Neighborhood House.

“Neighborhood House board and committee members are volunteers from our community who donate their time and talent to our Children’s Programs and Adult Day Services, helping make sure we operate an excellent non-profit with high-quality care available to low-income families in Salt Lake,” Johanson further explained.

Logo Name Tags

Each name tag featured someone’s name, title and the Neighborhood House logo. These name tags are a great representation of how versatile Coller Industries’ products are. Each name tag is personally inspected to make sure it meets our quality standards and then it is sent to the customer.

“Thank you again for Coller Industries’ generosity,” Johanson said. “Donations from partners like Coller Industries allow Neighborhood House to direct funds where are needed most. This empowers low-income families to access quality, affordable day care and supportive services.”

We are grateful for organizations such as the Neighborhood House. All of our donations are something that help us stand out from our competition. And the best part is working with wonderful people just like this!
