Torch In Action
Torch in Action, the service and outreach arm of Torch Helps, has coordinated several volunteer opportunities for our employee-owners since its inception in 2005. The main scope of Torch in Action is to provide Torch employees opportunities to volunteer in the local community by sharing information concerning available small scale service projects as well as planning, organizing, and implementing larger scale service-oriented projects.
What We Do
What We Do Torch in Action provides no financial support, it is instead focused on giving back through service. Torch in Action has participated in Salute to Service, Relay for Life, yard cleanup days at 305 8th Street, worked at food distribution centers organizing donated items, built ramps with the Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound for the elderly, hosted food, clothing, medical supplies, coats, and book drives, adopted angels from the Salvation Army angel tree, volunteered ringing bells for the Salvation Army, helped establish a STEM Lab for a local Boys & Girls Club, and ultimately helped make employee-owners aware of volunteer opportunities in the community.
Action Within the Community
Torch in Action advocates for service within our communities. Our employees have given back to their communities in many ways. We are active in our churches, schools and many volunteer organizations. We are parents, brothers, sisters, friends, mentors, advisors, grandparents, and so much more. We have created a work environment that reinforces the fact that coaching tee-ball is far more important than a management strategy session. After all, what value is it to earn a living if you do not take the time to have a life?
