BluePay’s Support Provides Hope This Holiday Season
NAPERVILLE, IL (December 22, 2016) – BluePay, a leading technology company specializing in integrated payment processing, is committed to giving back to the communities around the Chicagoland area. This December, BluePay and its team members made significant contributions to two local charities – The Wounded Warrior Project and Family Focus.
The Wounded Warrior Project is an organization dedicated to helping injured service men and women overcome physical, emotional, and financial obstacles. BluePay’s Executive Chairman, John Rante, has been passionate about this organization for many years. In the spirit of giving, BluePay’s team was challenged to raise $1,000 for The Wounded Warrior Project at the company’s annual holiday party. BluePay team members opened up their hearts and wallets and raised $2,300 in one hour, to which BluePay matched 100 percent, for an impressive grand total contribution of $4,600. BluePay has donated over $7,000 to the organization since 2014.
Headquartered in Naperville, Illinois, BluePay’s office building sponsors an Angel Tree in the lobby decorated with tags for children 14 and under in the Family Focus program. This local organization promotes the well-being of children by supporting and strengthening families within their communities. Teen and adult parents are eligible to receive assistance with child development education and skills training, developmental health screenings, afterschool programs, and much more. In addition to the Angel Tags sponsored by BluePay employees, the company donated over $500 in unwrapped toys to the organization. In some cases, this is the only gift the child will receive this holiday season.
“Giving back to our community is part of our company culture at BluePay,” commented Kristen Gramigna, Chief Marketing Officer at BluePay. “The holidays are a tough time for many who may be struggling financially, emotionally, or physically, and I’m proud of our team members and organization for helping to bring some joy to the men, women, and children around the Chicagoland area.”
