Thanks to Cassaday & Company, Inc. for a special $50,000 donation

Why is Cassaday & Company partnering with Central Union Mission? According to founder Steve Cassaday, “The mission of the organization was totally consistent with our family’s charitable goals to help people help themselves, and we are committed to a long-term giving plan with the organization.”

Michelle Tigani, manager of marketing and communications, adds, “It’s important for us to give back. We feel very lucky and blessed to have the jobs that we do and to be able to support others who aren’t as fortunate.” For her, the Mission is a great example of a “one-stop-shop” for people who need help: “We love that Central Union Mission is giving people skills and opportunities to advance their lives and to improve and grow.” Plus a benefit of supporting a local charity is that “you can get a better sense of what’s going on in your own neighborhood.”

Cassaday & Company’s Controller Anna Shkrabaliuk is a member of the board of trustees for the firm’s Donor Advised Fund, which has a mission to create opportunities that otherwise would not exist by providing basic necessities. She notes, “All our employees are mission-driven and donate to various organizations, so when we established this fund for the firm, we literally had 100% participation. When the firm introduced a 200% match, our employees increased the amount of their donation, as well! It’s a great program—good for morale within the with our family’s charitable goals to help people help themselves, and we are committed to a long-term giving plan firm.”

Coca-Cola Consolidated Leads Lambert House Renovation!

After COVID-19 hit, we moved those shelter residents with essential jobs into Lambert House. Suddenly, the Lambert House building was at capacity—but not up to the challenge. Since COVID-19 is no longer a temporary situation, we needed to make the essential repairs.

We began renovating Lambert House with a $55,000 investment in materials and labor from Coca-Cola Consolidated—replacing the roof, removing old carpets and making some critical repairs.

We need your help to complete these renovations.
