To kick-off our 2018 campaign to “give back” and support our valued clients, all team members were able to participate in our first ever Denim for Disabilities fundraiser benefiting UNMC’s Monroe-Meyer Institute.
For $1 a day, from January 15 – February 9th, employees could wear jeans. The event is traditionally a campus-wide fundraiser for UNMC departments. However, as a proud partner to both UNMC and Monroe-Meyer, Altus became the first off-site or partner donor, as our leadership encouraged participation as a way to offer our support for the mission of the Monroe-Meyer Institute. Heading into the last week of the campaign, the ante was upped as President Loren Lamprecht offered to match all employee monies. As a result of the firms collective efforts, Altus was able to present a $600 check to Monroe-Meyer Institute.
The event raises money for the recreational therapy program at the Monroe-Meyer Institute, which provides activities on Thursday night for adults with developmental disabilities. Hundreds of families benefit from these services each year.
Stay tuned for our Q2 give back campaign, coming soon!
