Four Scorpion EOMs Donate to Four Separate Charities Posted by Scorpion | 8.19.13 2:40pm

In July 2013, Scorpion Design had an unprecedented month where four separate employees were honored as the Employee of the Month (EOM) for their individual contributions to the betterment of the company.

The first charity that received a donation from one of the July EOMs is A Light of Hope (ALOH). ALOH is located in Newhall, California and is a family support system that seeks to help young people to "fight against destructive forces." They live by the motto that when there is light, there is hope. ALOH uses Alternative Peer Group activities, weekly support group meetings, and more to help young adults and parents alike find support in their individual battles. At ALOH, youth and young adults (ages 14 to 26) can find help for anything from substance abuse to self-destructive behaviors, including drugs, alcohol, depression, cutting, sexual abuse, and behavioral issues through their compassionate programs and services.

The second charity chosen by an EOM to receive a donation is Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). This charity's roots reach all the way back to 1990 when then manager of the Oakland A's, Tony La Russa, saw a cat run onto the field on a game against the New York Yankees. After taking the cat in, Tony tried to find a No-Kill facility in the East Bay region of San Francisco to no avail. The next year, Tony and his wife were inspired to start ARF, a No-Kill organization for helping abandoned animals find homes, as well as educating the public about the importance of pet control population. In their 2011-2012 report, ARF was honored to announce that nearly 2,000 dogs and cats had been adopted.

The third charity is the American Cancer Society (ACS), which has been leading the march in the fight against cancer for more than a century. As a world-renowned organization, the ACS has made it their mission to do everything possible to "eliminate cancer as a major health problem." Together with millions of supports, the ACS has spread its influence through more than 100 geographic Divisions and more than 900 local offices; in fact, it is a prominent presence in more than 5,000 communities. It comes together with all of its supporters to raise money to help people stay well, get well, find cures, as well as to provide programs and services, host fundraising events, and to help pass laws that defeat cancer.
