Of the most disenfranchised groups in this country, our nation’s homeless are among the top. For many Americans, the problems of the homeless are theirs to own, but for Troy Shears—one of our May Employees of the Month—to give up on those in the most need would be a greater failure.
Here at Scorpion, as part of our monthly charitable donation, one lucky EOM gets the opportunity to choose an organization they wish to support on behalf of the company. Choosing the social services organization The Samaritan Center of Simi Valley to receive this month’s donation, Troy hopes to share a little kindness with those in need across the city.
The Samaritan Center has continued to serve the community since 1994, providing services for approximately 200 new individuals per year, 5 days a week. Representing an institution where those amidst a struggle can re-establish a solid foundation—rather than receive immediate or short-term help—The Samaritan Center prides itself on re-building the humanity of the everyday Americans that find themselves homeless.
For Troy, his connection to the lives of the homeless population go deeper than most:
“I’ve personally been involved with members of our community that have used their services to rebuild their lives. I can say first-hand that their sacrifices and compassion are genuine and inspirational. I’m honored to be a part of Scorpion and the support they’re placing behind The Samaritan Center, our community, and the homeless population of LA.”
The Samaritan Center of Simi Valley offers a variety of ways to get involved through donation, volunteering, and charity events. If you’d like to help in any meaningful way, please reach out to them today!
