Prize Money Donated To Philabundance, Cradles To Crayons and The Ronald McDonald House
March 24, 2015 — Today Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, announced that FirsTrust Bank has named it a winner of Philly’s Business First Awards. The awards were created to shine a spotlight on regional businesses making a difference in the community and are voted on by the public. Since its founding in 2007, Evolve IP and its associates have volunteered over 3,000 hours of time and have raised and donated more than $4,000,000 to charities through its innovative Evolve Cares program.
Evolve IP is contributing its prize money to three charities: The Ronald McDonald House, Cradles to Crayons and Philabundance. In addition to the financial contributions, Evolve IP’s associates are also involved in hands-on initiatives with these groups. Within the last month associates have packed food boxes for Philabundance, volunteered to cook for Ronald McDonald house families and began collecting supplies for Cradles to Crayons.
“Congratulations to Evolve IP for receiving the Biz First Award,” said Susan Campbell, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House, “As a customer of, and partner with, Evolve IP we are grateful for the company’s commitment to the families staying at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House and for choosing our organization to receive proceeds from the award.
