The AdCellerant team is proud of the company’s success but we are prouder of the contributions we make every week in our local community. The team created “AdCellerant Gives” as the spearhead of this effort. AdCellerant Gives is the giving arm of AdCellerant focused on lifting up the homeless, disadvantaged youth, volunteering in the local community, and decreasing the company’s eco-impact on the environment. This four-pronged approach is led by the team and is organized by our biggest local volunteer Muhammad Khan who personally volunteers over 365 hours/year.
The first prong of this approach is lifting up the local homeless population in Denver. Over the last few years, the team purchased and served food for the homeless every Thursday at Civic Center Park in Denver. With hundreds showing up every Thursday, the team serves well in excess of 5,000 meals every year. Additionally, AdCellerant Gives organizes a warm clothes drive each year around Thanksgiving, handing out these items to help keep them warm during the colder months.
The second prong of AdCellerant Gives is focused on at-risk youth through an organization DenverKids.org. The primary focus of this initiative is to identify at-risk youth and work with them to mentor, grow, and graduate these kids from high school. The company underwrites their NPR advertising, the team volunteers at their events, and we host events at our office with large groups of children to introduce job shadowing and more.
In addition to feeding the homeless and helping at-risk youth, the company has a quarterly volunteer project that is variable and surfaced by someone on the team. The company selects one program per quarter and support it both financially and with volunteer hours.
Finally, the company has exponentially decreased our impact on the environment in the last 12 months through increased recycling, composting, and leveraging energy-efficient space/products/etc. and as of August 2019, we are officially a zero-waste company. We’re all proud of these efforts and believe it’s important to be good corporate citizens.
