Over the past 25 years we are proud that CEI as a corporation and our staff individually have volunteered countless hours to public and nonprofit organization, providing our own area of expertise to projects and groups we are committed to. Whether it is extra hours to assist a municipal department or group in the form of industry education, volunteering to teach students about what we do and preserving the natural environment or the late hours many of our staff commit to volunteer boards and commissions in their own community, CEI is proud of its community efforts.
Additionally, CEI manages numerous group giving efforts throughout the year. These have included:
CEI teamed with Operation Troop Support to collect care package items for donation to deployed men and women across the world serving in the U.S. Military. CEI staff throughout the Northeast contributed a myriad of needed items including socks, sunscreen and personal care items. Operation Troop Support, a nonprofit group that serves deployed men and women in uniform from across the country, pack-up the items and ensure the care packages reach their final destination to U.S. troops overseas. CEI Proudly Supports the Men and Women Serving in our U.S. Armed Forces!
CEI teams with the local Boys and Girls Club of America and the Salvation Army – Kids Café to collect school supplies for students needing assistance to start the new school year. With overflowing boxes of much need school supplies, CEI staff donated new notebooks, backpacks, crayons, pens/pencils, folders and many other needed supplies. Both organizations distribute these materials to students who need help fulfilling their school supply list for the upcoming school year and start the school year off right.
At various points throughout the year, CEI organizes a food drive to support various food pantries near our office locations. We are happy to be able to support our community in this way.
CEI recognizes that our four-legged friends are in need of care, food and supplies so we have donated pet food and products to our local animal shelters as part of our quarterly giving program. Because they are private, non-profit organizations, donations of money, time, supplies, homes, and love are vital to their cause and the lives of the animals they care for! They depend on the support and generosity of the community, and are always grateful for anything they receive to help care for sick, injured, and homeless animals.
