Being headquartered in downtown Oklahoma City has its perks, but it’s the people that make it shine.
In times of hardship and uncertainty, the small acts of kindness people do and the unexpected ways that we support each other have the power to restore our hope for a better tomorrow. When we saw the opportunity to make even a small difference, Valiant’s employees chose to give back to the community – and we only had to drive around the corner.
Since setting up office in 2016, Valiant has taken an active role in supporting local community programs whenever possible. So, when one Valiant employee realized an opportunity for us to help those in need, they didn’t hesitate to speak up.
Giving To Better Hands
As part of our brand awareness programs, Valiant’s Marketing department frequently orders samples of clothing and merchandise such as hats, polos, and dress shirts. Rather than letting these items sit in a drawer unused, the employee recommended that we donate these items to City Rescue Mission.
To help families and individuals who are struggling with homelessness, organizations like the City Rescue Mission provide social services related to shelter, nutrition, and other special needs.
In total, over 30 pieces of un-branded, never-worn pieces of clothing were donated just a few blocks South of our corporate office.
While we may take them for granted, these items can have an enormous impact for someone that’s going through hard times.
Making a positive impact in our communities is part of Valiant’s commitment to supporting social good and is embedded in our company culture.
Stories like this remind us that you don’t have to travel across the world to make a difference – you can do it right in your own backyard. At Valiant, we believe good ideas can come from anywhere because every employee has the power to make an impact.
