At Thompson Gray, we have a passion for giving back to the communities in which we live. Each quarter our employees have the opportunity to nominate an organization or cause to receive a financial donation. In addition, each employee can request a $350 financial donation to a charity of their choice. In the first quarter of 2021, our employees nominated The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Center and Operation Green Team Foundation.
The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Center – Founded in 2006, the mission of the Foundation is to erase the effects of pediatric cancer and optimize each child’s quality of life through essential specialized intervention beginning at the time of diagnosis and continuing throughout survivorship. The Foundation serves 700 patients annually from all over the southeast region. The foundation provides services to children with cancer as well as their families through its four major divisions; Industrial Arts, Diversionary Therapy, Psycho-Oncology, and Healthy Lifestyle Education.
Operation Green Team Foundation – The Operation Green Team Foundation helps the Huntsville “Keep America Beautiful” affiliate, Operation Green Team, continue the work it began in 1977. Its mission is to keep Huntsville beautiful and sustainable with litter prevention initiatives, waste reduction and recycling programs, landscape enhancements and environmental field trips and programs at the J.D. & Annie S. Hays Nature Preserve and the Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary.
We are grateful for the opportunity to help these organizations continue the vital work they do for the community. It is due to the hard work of all our employees that Thompson Gray has the ability to donate, volunteer and raise awareness for these important causes.
