In a world where we're constantly on the move, reaching new heights in innovation and growth, it's essential to pause and reflect on the core values that shape us as individuals and organizations. At Unisource Solutions, one such value that has been at the heart of our journey is our unwavering commitment to giving back to the communities that have welcomed and nurtured us. As we observe Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to the spirit of generosity, we're excited to share our perspective on why giving back to our community is not just a responsibility, but a cornerstone of our identity.

The culture at Unisource Solutions is deeply rooted in empathy and mutual respect, and we believe in supporting our employees in their individual endeavors to make a positive impact. When our team members are passionate about a cause, we see it as an opportunity to extend our corporate responsibility, encouraging them to pursue their philanthropic passions. This not only fosters a sense of purpose and fulfillment among our employees but also strengthens our corporate culture, amplifying the collective impact we can make as a unit. It's a testament to our belief that we grow together, we give together, and together, we can make a difference.

Below are some of the examples of how we connect with and support our community. We are proud of what we do each year and think it’s equally important to practice generosity daily.

Gears for Kids

Gears for Kids is a charitable program committed to bringing joy and mobility to underprivileged children by giving them bicycles.

Manuel Sanchez, our Senior Project Manager, is actively involved in this initiative. At Unisource Solutions, we are proud to support Gears for Kids, fully embracing the spirit of giving and making a difference in the lives of children in our community.

Over the last few years, I've had the privilege of joining hands with our architecture and design community partners to teach kids how to build and ride a bike. The joy and excitement in their eyes when they ride away with their very own bike is priceless.”

– Manuel Sanchez, Senior Project Manager
