As we approach year-end at One Call Now, I’d like to steer you to our company holiday greeting video… posted here on You Tube
Our growing group (approaching 50) has been working all year to grow our Raving Fans base of loyal clients knowing that we all have a simple mantra… when messages matter- we deliver
But outside the office is just as important. Our company has a record of giving and volunteerism that we enthusiastically encourage and support.
Although many of our clients are non-profit groups who receive substantial discounts on our services already,
this year, we donated over $150,000 in cash, time and services to dozens of groups and organizations around the world; I’d like to list a few…
- Romania Lonely Voices Gypsy mission – kept sponsors and neighbors informed everyday
- Church Mission trips in Brazil, Ghana, Rwanda, Costa Rica and 150 others… – helped raise funds and inform sponsors with daily messages

- United Way of Miami County- 90% company employee participation with 100% matching
- Plus dozens of school levies- where we donate calls to every voter to help pass essential school funding issues across the country
- and not least… every One Call Now associate gets 3 paid days off each year – in addition to holidays, vacation and personal days, to donate volunteer time in their community; this added up to over $45,000 in paid time we were able to donate to have them available to work for their favorite charity, church, synagogue, school or youth group.
We are pleased to be able to give back so much, and I encourage everyone to do whatever they can in these endeavors, as we plan to do even better ourselves next year!
May you and yours have a great Holiday season and a safe New Year!
