In 2019, we initiated an internal philanthropic movement allowing individual team members to select an organization that resonates with them. For January, our Industry Manager Nicola Welch chose The ALS Association of Texas.
Nicola raised nearly $600 as a result of her own efforts and successfully incorporated the team at Viachem to contribute as well. We participated in a “working lunch” assisting the ALS Association of Texas by arranging gifts for winning team captains of the latest 5K hosted by the ALS Association. With the work completed by the Viachem team, we were able to complete the task in a more efficient and timely manner.
The mission of the ALS Association of Texas is to “Create a world without ALS. That’s the goal of everything we do at ALS Texas. The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit organization completely dedicated to fighting ALS. Our work covers all the bases –– research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy — in providing help, support, and hope to those facing the disease. The ALS Association and the Texas Chapter operate under a shared mission— to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.”
Thank you Nicola, for sharing this charity with us and allowing us to contribute in the best way we can!
