The 2015 CDPHP Charity of Choice campaign is off to a great start, with employees rallying to support the first fundraisers of the year, which netted nearly $1,700 for Northern Rivers Family Services (NRFS). The nonprofit serves as the parent organization for Parsons Child and Family Center of Albany, N.Y., and Northeast Parent & Child Society of Schenectady, N.Y. Annually, these two longstanding family service agencies collectively serve more than 13,000 children and families grappling with behavioral health issues or recovering from trauma, abuse or neglect.
Each year since 2010, CDPHP has adopted a “charity of choice” – a nonprofit organization that employees are encouraged to support not only financially, but also through personal volunteer involvement. Over the last five years, CDPHP and its employees have raised more than $200,000 for the chosen charities.
