The employee contributors of the IronMountain Solutions Employee Peaks Fund recently awarded $45,860 to 15 local-non profit organizations. This brings the total to nearly $190,000 that IMS employees have given back to community organizations since the fund was founded in 2018.
“In a year like 2020, our non-profit and volunteer community needs us more than ever. We are all adapting to a new way of work and life,” said company President & CEO Hank Isenberg. “In a time that has brought so much change, it is humbling to see that the giving nature of IMS employees remains strong.”
The following charitable organizations received grants for the second half of 2020: 305 8th Street; Huntsville Inner City Learning Center; AGAPE; North Alabama Coalition for the Homeless; Alabama Nonviolent Offenders Association; Safe Harbor; Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Alabama; Second Mile Development; Care Center; Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Inc.; Free2Teach; Stand Down Together Huntsville; Huntsville Assistance Program; Therapy Partners; and Huntsville Hospital Foundation.
The IMS Employee Peaks Fund is entirely run by employees, comprised of a Board of Directors and employee contributors who vote on the applicants that will receive grants each award season. More than 80 percent of the employees contribute through payroll deductions throughout the year.
“I am proud to serve as the chair and proud of the impact we are able to make,” said board Chair Sharon Valavicius. “I have no doubt the grant recipients will put this money to use in making our community even stronger in the year to come.”
The IMS Employee Peaks Fund awards grants to qualified applicants twice a year. Applications will be accepted in the spring. For information, visit www.ironmountainsolutions.com/community/.
