Companies That Care

Small Businesses Making Big Impact

Let’s partner to support the community and your business!

Companies that Care is a new partnership opportunity for businesses to support Amethyst Place while demonstrating their commitment to social good. Now more than ever, your customers and employees care too.

In addition to a company’s charitable giving driving 73% of consumer decisions, 83% of millennial employees are more loyal to a company that helps them contribute to social and environmental issues. Employee recruitment and retention are now more vital than ever and we can help.

Through donation drives, event sponsorships, financial contributions, and volunteerism, you can make a deep impact while receiving several benefits like increased brand recognition and sales to show that you’re a company that cares.

Let’s work together to find the right social impact strategy for your business!

  • Volunteerism
  • Donation drives and in-kind support

September 2023 Partner

Blessings Abound

Last year, we initiated Companies That Care (CTC), to build more impactful relationships and recognize the businesses making a difference in our community.

September’s CTC feature is Blessings Abound. Tony Whitter, Executive Director, shares about their involvement below:

My name is Tony, Exec. Dir. of Blessings Abound. Blessings Abound is a thrift operation and donation Center based out of Overland Park. We have provided financial support to more than 50 nonprofits in the KC metro area. Blessings Abound’s goal is to maximize the impact of in-kind donations. At BA, Amethyst Place is well known for doing wonderful work and we are pleased to support it! We also support other organizations in the community that collaborate with Amethyst Place, such as Operation Breakthrough and Flourish Furniture Bank. BA is a win-win for all – donors, shoppers, staff/volunteers from all walks, as well as Amethyst Place!

AP takes a long-term approach to working with individuals, which isn’t the easiest way, but clearly the most effective.

Participate in the Companies that Care program. By doing so, you affirm the work of a vibrant, passionate group of staff and volunteers who heal families.

During September, we will collect breakfast items for AP’s pantry such as cereal, oatmeal, packaged fruit cups, fruit and granola bars, peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix, syrup. Other non-perishables are also welcome. Stop by 10325 Metcalf in Overland Park and get an extra punch on your BA Rewards Card for participating!
