Community Outreach

The notion that it is essential to be active and helpful members of our communities is captured in our Strategic Plan as one of our six corporate objectives: Be Good Citizens.  

We take great pride in our continued philanthropic, charitable, and volunteer outreach to local, regional, national, and international activities.  These activities have made a difference in people’s lives through voluntary service and financial support.  We are proud of our employees' efforts

Examples of our community outreach efforts are listed below
We support a matching gift program for each employee up to $300 a year to be given to charities, churches, or causes we support as families and individuals.
We partner with Franconia Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia, to whom we donate both money and services.  Employees also volunteer their time with tutoring and mentoring activities.
We contribute money and services to the Laurel Grove School Association for the preservation of the one-room schoolhouse built by former slaves.
We participate in the Virginia "Adopt-A-Highway" program, cleaning up a section of a local public roadway to keep it free of litter.
We sponsor and conduct blood drives for the American Red Cross at our headquarters location several times each year.
We actively participate in Lee National Denim Day with donations going to the Women's Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).
We support the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program with a company-wide collection each year.
We provide support benefiting Homes for Our Troops by donating proceeds from our annual golf tournament.
We support the National Center for Veteran Institute for Procurement’s program to train veteran service-disabled and veteran owned small businesses to succeed in the federal contracting market with classroom instruction.
We contribute used eyeglasses to the "Give the Gift of Sight" program for people in developing countries.
We contribute used cell phones to a domestic abuse victims program.
We support homeless shelters, international relief efforts, and other programs with food, clothing, and other donations.
We participate in numerous charity walks/runs and bicycle riding events for medical research and outreach programs each year.
We designate our supermarket receipts for computers and software to schools with a particular focus on schools in needy areas.
We collect box tops and soup labels for schools that can be redeemed for cash to support educational programs.
Members of the staff donate their time to schools, faith-based organizations, and other outreach activities to help children and others in need of assistance.

CALIBRE takes its responsibility to "Be Good Citizens" very seriously.  We are proud of the level of staff participation and involvement in so many activities that support our local communities and the Nation.
