State College, Pa.
One on One, 424 W. Aaron Drive, State College, Pa., is pleased to announce it has raised $41,235.00 through its “Give Back” initiative in 2013.
Since 2009, “Give Back” has encouraged clients of One on One to pay for certain services by making a donation to one of its chosen charities, either the Youth Service Bureau or Centre Volunteers in Medicine.
“One on One’s Give Back program is the most unique form of giving we benefit from and we encourage other local businesses to take their lead and help their charity of choice”, says Andrea Boyles, Executive Director of The Youth Service Bureau. “One on One’s Give Back program has become an integral part of funding programs like YSB’s neighborhood outreach and Big Brothers Big Sisters programming.
To date, “Give Back” has raised over $136,000.00. Services include One on One’s Group Training program, its Lecture Series, Trainer Bonus program and Nutrition Habit Challenge.
“I would like to thank all those who have participated in our “Give Back” initiative,” says Bruce Burke, Founder of One on One. “ We started the program to leverage our charitable giving; to spend one dollar to raise two, but it has become so much more. We have enjoyed more inspiration from our staff, clients and community than we could ever have imagined.”
