Great Advice for Working Parents and Those Leading Them

Posted by Anita Baldwinson on August 31, 2022

SAS CODA

The other day CODA, our DE&I Council was joined by Ginger as well as Our House, Working Families ERG for a panel discussion to help our company's parents and those that lead them. Here are some themes and suggestions that emerged during the conversation.

Being a parent provides us with some of life’s most precious moments, but it also can present challenging ones as well. For working parents, juggling responsibilities at home with a career can certainly be stressful. As we approach another school year and many working parents transition back to the office, the family dynamic may be changing once again!

Happy Red Nose Day!

You've seen them.  The bright red rubber and foam noses engulfing the faces of many to spark a smile and give back.  Smiles are contagious, and these red beams of light have lifted spirits and spread the message in the U.S. since 2015. 

We enter the 7th annual fundraising event, solely focused on child poverty and a path to a better future for children all across  the World! But, what once was one full day of fundraising programs and entertainment is now extended throughout the year.

With the help of several major partners and vendors, Walgreens remains the exclusive retailer supplying the signature red noses.  100% of any donation goes toward the Red Nose Day Fund, and it's 2022 grantee partner, Children’s Health Fund. Even more, Walgreens will match any one-time donation up to $150K through May 26th, 2022. 

SAS is proud to be a supporting partner for Walgreens!  Help for children is needed in all shapes, sizes and locations.  Visit a Walgreens near you and pick up you iconic red nose today!

Somewhere, Over the Philadelphia Skyline

Posted by Megan Reinertson on December 23, 2021

I grew up in  very small town.  So small, that I knew every first, middle and last name of every student in my graduating class.  Mostly because I had grown up with the same classmates since kindergarten.  It was a sort of community where change rarely happened, and when it did, an opinionated wave of uproar and rabble spread, regardless of the change's origin or intent.

Change is scary. But, change is also exciting.  It affords new opportunities, a chance to take what you've learned and apply it more accurately: an avenue of correcting and/or perfecting previous performances. Change encourages us to grow and evolve.  Sometimes, it delivers the avenue of growth we were not afforded.
