In 2018, we launched our new #SHCCares campaign, which is a community outreach campaign that encourages employees and customers to give back to the area we live in and serve. Our employees are given opportunities to volunteer or give in certain ways and our most recent initiative was the “Stuffed Animal Drive” that benefited children undergoing treatment or care at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
This year, we were able to collect 305 stuffed animals for kids at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital! We accomplished this by receiving donations of stuffed animals and monetary donations from our customers that we matched dollar-for-dollar. We want to say THANK YOU to everyone who was involved in making this stuffed animal drive a success. We know that the stuffed animals will bring smiles and comfort to many children that are facing a difficult time in the hospital as they are away from home.
“We originally had a goal of 100 stuffed animals and after the first week knew we would surpass that goal and just decided to get as many as we could. It was wonderful to see the SHC team members getting involved, donations from our clients and other community partners. We really appreciate all the donations and taking them up to Doernbecher’s was an amazing experience.”

It’s important for us to be an active part of the local community and giving back is one way we show our support and love for our community and customers. To learn more about our SHCCares program, visit our website here.
