Paycor It Forward Day Benefits More than 20 Organizations

Paycor's second annual Paycor It Forward day took place February 9, 2016. Each of Paycor's sales offices chose an organization, created a Community Partners event, and spent the day volunteering their time and services. These are just some of the organizations we were proud to support:

* Allendale Association (Lake Villa, IL)
* Annie's Angels
* Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland
* Brandon Foundation
* Catholic Charities Diocese of Pittsburgh
* Feed My Starving Children
* Gateway 180
* Gillis Center (Kansas City)
* Habitat for Humanity
* The Homeless Families Foundation
* JARC Special Needs House (Livonia, MI)
* Lifeline Animal Project
* Lighthouse Youth Services (Cincinnati, OH)
* Mel Trotter Ministries
* Midwest Food Bank
* Nashville Rescue Mission
* Nemours Childrens' Hospital (Jacksonville, FL)
* Ronald McDonald House
* Second Harvest Food Bank
* The YMCA of Tampa
* The Veterans' Association of Cincinnati

Some awesome stats from the day:

* 263 participants
* 1,000+ hours volunteered
* 11,448 meals will feed 31 children for 1 year in the Philippines
* 200 care packages were given to new patients at the Cincinnati VA
* 14 pallets of food were filled at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte
* Over 30 dogs and cats were given a little TLC
* Over 400 lunches were served to the less fortunate
* Murals were painted for the Keswell School in Boston
* Several hours were spent cleaning and sorting through clothes and food

Sid Taylor, Director at Lighthouse Youth Services' Youth Crisis Center, said of the time Paycor volunteers spent at his facility:

“I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the volunteers. They were a huge help and we see a difference in the overall appearance of the facility. Please thank them for me and let them know how thrilled I was to walk in here today and instantly see what they’ve done. Our 24/7 model keeps us constantly engaged with managing behaviors and is so busy that we rarely have the needed time to focus solely on cleaning. I am so thrilled in fact, that I’d like to explore the possibly of this as a quarterly (or at least twice per year) event.”
