Everyone has the chance to make a positive impact.
We all can support the people in the communities we live in. Public Knowledge® knows that taking the time to serve others in a meaningful way is an important part of our lives. That is why our PK Cares Program provides our people with paid time off to volunteer at organizations and charitable events in their communities.
PK Cares is a Mindset
While PK Cares has inspired others to participate in a Habitat for Humanity build or pack meals, its true nature lies in thinking beyond ourselves. Simple, intentional action can have a profound impact.
One Small Action Can Lead to Big Change
Johanne Lauzon saw an opportunity to make a difference.
“This year, I wanted to do something different for my birthday. I’ve always considered myself privileged and wanted to give back to my community and those in need. I decided to set up a Facebook fundraiser for Maison Le Paravent, a newly founded nonprofit dedicated to helping women who are experiencing homelessness or difficult times. Instead of taking me out for lunch or buying me a gift for my birthday, my friends and family generously donated to the non-profit. What a great feeling it was when I realized that a total amount of $1070 was raised.”Johanne Lauzon, Business Development Manager
One Positive Action Leads to Another
Having a mindset around serving others and striving to make an impact can lead to some creative approaches. You never know where you may find inspiration to give back to your community, therefore we encourage our people to look for unique opportunities.
“My story inspired two of my friends who decided to do the same thing for their birthdays. Together, we have now raised over $3,500.00 for Maison Le Paravent. If you don’t know what to ask for your birthday, I really encourage you to consider doing this. Giving back is truly the best feeling of all.”Johanne Lauzon, Business Development Manager
Leaving Our World Better Than We Found It
Our drive to be a catalyst for positive outcomes isn’t only in the work we do for our clients. This mindset also embodies our approach to PK Cares. We are invested in making a positive impact, one step at a time.
