GUARDIAN RFID is publicly committing to donating 1% of its profits, product, and time to supporting a wide range of causes from Blue Lives Matter to Veteran Homelessness
Maple Grove, Minn., September 29, 2020/PR Newswire/ — GUARDIAN RFID today announced that it has joined the Pledge 1% Movement in recognition that businesses have a responsibility to do well, and do good.
Pledge 1% is a global movement that inspires, educates, and empowers every entrepreneur, company, and employee to be a force for good. Over 10,000 members in 100 countries have used Pledge 1%’s flexible framework to donate 1% of product, 1% of profit, and 1% of team member time to improve communities.
GUARDIAN RFID has committed to achieving all three of these goals, which began this year by donating $50,000 to purchase and distribute face masks freely to correctional officers impacted by COVID-19, as well as ongoing financial support to Christians Reaching Out in Social Service (C.R.O.S.S.), a Twin Cities metro-area food shelf.
“We are incredibly excited that GUARDIAN RFID has taken the pledge,” said Amy Lesnick, chief executive of Pledge 1%. “GUARDIAN RFID is playing a pivotal role in building this movement as evidenced by their efforts to distribute 250,000 free masks to protect America’s Thin Gray Line, and promoting a new normal in which all companies—big and small—integrate giving back as a core value in their business.”
“We’ve created a team member gift matching program to boost donations to the Warrior Foundation, while encouraging our team to use work days to volunteer for causes that matter most to them,” said Ken Dalley Jr., President, and Chief Warrior, GUARDIAN RFID. “Giving back, whether it’s our time, talent, or treasure, creates safer, stronger communities, which is needed now more than ever.”
