Triad knows that the heart of every community is its people, and so many nonprofits are making a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.
To support those agencies, Triad started its “Great People, Great Places” Initiative in 2020 – a commitment to making quarterly donations to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions.
Because of the positive impact this program has had, we are excited to continue it in 2021!
Every quarter, Triad employees nominate a nonprofit that is important to them, and those nonprofits that receive donations are selected randomly from those nominations.
Recently, Triad was proud to make a donation to the Urban League of Essex County — a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping create jobs, teaching new skills, and educating the future. The agency was nominated by Triad Vice President Steve Kehs.
Triad’s donation was used to support the Urban League’s Early Childhood Development Center, located in Newark, NJ.
Serving infants, toddlers and preschoolers, the Urban League’s education program works to build a strong academic foundation based on developmentally-appropriate practices that stress teaching in ways that match how children develop and learn.
