For some companies, giving back to our community is just part of the corporate culture. One such organization is Bigfoot Beverages in Eugene. Charitable giving is not an exception. it’s the rule for Bigfoot. The company’s community involvement page at their Web site succinctly states: “Giving back is the right thing to do and it’s a part of who we are. We provide refreshing beverages and donations for events benefiting groups that strengthen our community.” Bigfoot has been an important supporter of the ShelterCare mission through a variety of ways.
This includes a $25,000 donation to the agency’s new Center for Programs and Services in the Whiteaker District, and most recently with an in-kind beverage donation at the May 22 agency art benefit, which raised monies for families dealing with homelessness. “Bigfoot has made a big impact with ShelterCare,” said Lucy Vinis, ShelterCare’s director of development. “And their contributions will be felt for years to come.”
