Neighborhood Parcel, a Biz International Corporation is delighted to announce that as part of its overall corporate responsibility program, it will be supporting the Massachusetts Habitat For Humanity organization and continue to support the Lazarus House of Lawrence MA. Our support will come in volunteering and charitable donations to these worthy causes and organizations.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. The houses would be built at no profit and interest would not be charged on the loans. Building costs would be financed by a revolving fund called “The Fund for Humanity.” The fund’s money would come from the new homeowners’ house payments, no-interest loans provided by supporters and money earned by fund-raising activities. The monies in the Fund for Humanity would be used to build more houses.
Biz International Corp CEO Hanson Bechat comments during a recent press release:
“It is very important that our employees use their talents and resources to help others less fortunate. Charitable support and community volunteering is an important part of our overall corporate responsibility program. By harnessing the efforts of all of our employees we aim to give something back to the local and national communities and raise money for such a worthwhile cause. We are delighted to be supporting the Lazarus House and the Habitat For Humanity. We are looking forwards to undertaking a variety fund raising activities going forwards.”
How Do We Give Back:
As a locally owned and operated business, we try to give back to our community every chance we get. While we understand that economy is taking its toll on our industry and biting a big chunk of our charity budget, we continued to:
- Supporting The Lazarus House: Matching dollar for dollar donations made at our stores.
- Volunteering for Habitat For Humanity: Our staff is listed as a volunteer for this great cause.
- Offering shipping discounts: since we have no greedy stockholders to answer to, we are able to support the Lowell Art Community and Umass Lowell students by offering them lucrative discounts in International and Domestic shipping services.
- Donating to charities: We continue to donate and support local and national charities like Boston Strong, Walk For Cancer, Alzheimer’s Fund, Tewksbury Lions Club, Wilmington Tewksbury Business Chamber, and many more worthy causes.
Keeping All Business Local:
Supporting a local business has always paid off when you select to do business with a local business, you are supporting a local family, funding a local state tax fund and your money is spent locally Vs elsewhere. The same principle applies when you are looking to hire a shipping or shredding service company, always consider hiring a local business so your payment is supporting local programs and helping your neighbors.
