White House Marketing Volunteers at Special Olympics Fall Games

Perris, CA—A team of White House Marketing representatives volunteer at the Special Olympics Fall Games in Softball and Soccer.

 

Special Olympics Southern California Fall Games takes place in several locations. For the Inland Empire, the softball and soccer events were held at the Big League Dreams in Perris, California on Saturday, October 20, 2018.

 

The athletes in attendance exceeded 1,100 in Southern California. Kaiser Permanente provides medical assistance for any athletes, volunteers, and coaches at the event at no cost. Hundreds of volunteers come together to warm up and cheer on athletes, keep times and scores, setup/breakdown sports equipment, award medals, and sell shirts.

 

Amaya B, White House Marketing Volunteer for softball, showed her knowledge of the sport by warming up the individual athletes in running, swinging, and throwing. Amaya stated, “I felt so good attending the event. I really enjoyed seeing all of the smiling faces—especially when I was cheering them on.”

 

The event marked 50 years of Special Olympics. Special guests and performers showed up to give support to the athletes who persevere in participation. The opening ceremony consists of a torch lighting ceremony, National Anthem, introduction of the teams, and each athlete taking the Special Olympics’ Oath. It says, “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” A lesson for us all as we prepare for each day.

WHM Joins the Kappa Delta Shamrock 5K Run to raise awareness on Child Abuse

Some White House Marketing reps attended this year’s 5K run in support of bringing awareness to child abuse.

On March 3, 2018, White House Marketing sent some reps who volunteered to attend this year’s 5K run to support child abuse awareness. This Shamrock run is hosted by Kappa Delta Panhellenic Association in multiple cities across the United States. The San Bernardino run was the closest to our Corona headquarters. Some reps took their dogs. Some reps were very competitive. Others just got a shirt and stood by to cheer the others on.

Michael M., White House Marketing rep came in 50th out of several hundred. Michael said, “Next time, I’m shooting for top 25 next time. But, seriously, the 5K was a great team-building event for the office and also dedicated to a great cause. We all got to be a bit competitive with each other. But, more importantly, we got to do our part to help fight child abuse. I definitely had a really fun time and was glad to run for a charity.” Phillip, also a rep and former UFC fighter, was beat by a tenth of a second by his eight year old daughter. She stated, “In all actuality, I would have beat him by more. He was slowing me down.”

Proceeds from those who participated went to local shelters and child abuse centers. White House Marketing is certainly looking to make this charity event a part of the routine. Everything was very well-organized and everyone was so nice. It was a bit wet outside from all of the rain the day prior. But, it was very refreshing—literally and figuratively.

White House Marketing extends a helping hand to those in need.

CORONA, CA – White House Marketing recognizes the rising number of homeless people in Los Angeles and decides to make a small impact for the holidays.

A White House Marketing representative, Yesica R. came into the office with a sigh of sadness under her voice one day. When she was asked, “what’s wrong?”, she stated that she was extremely affected by a viral video she saw on Facebook. The video was an interview with a homeless man in New York. He was talking about his typical days, how hard it is to find a job without having a residence, and the sadness he encounters during the holiday season by not having a home to go home to.

 

On December 22, 2017, a group of White House Marketing groups of representatives put together 150 sack lunches to hand out to homeless people. The sacks were filled with food and beverage items including sandwiches, chips, and non-perishables. All grocery items were donated by WHM employees. Each two-person group met at the office to put together sacks and drove to different areas of Riverside and Los Angeles.

Last year, it was reported that there are approximately 58,000 ho  meless people in Los Angeles. That number did not extend to surrounding areas. The Los Angeles Times came out with an article stating the reported estimated number was extremely low. The LA Times also stated in the article that “The count does not purport to tap every person who experiences bouts of homelessness over a year, but rather produces a snapshot of the street and shelter population that can be used to shape policy and distribute funding.”

So, although WHM could only reach 150 people in those areas, the tears of joy, hugs of appreciation, and happiness on their faces made the entire event well-worthwhile. Yesica says, “I really like working for a company that actually cares about what the employees care about. For someone to ask me what was wrong, ask to see the video, and encourage the food drive to take place was amazing. And, even though it was just one meal, I…we…made a difference in someone’s life today even if they don’t have a home to go to.”

 

White House Marketing supports Epilepsy Awareness and Autism Awareness

CORONA, CA White House Marketings president is an avid supporter of bringing awareness to different charities for those suffering with different disabilities, challenges, and handicaps.

 

“Everyone knows someone—whether a family member or friend—that suffers from some type of illness,” declared Randy W., the president of White House Marketing. “I think its important to know your employees and know what is important to them.”

 

Purple Day is celebrated annually on March 26th. Although November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, every year countries all over the world come together to spread awareness on people who suffer with epilepsy. It is estimated that one in every 100 people suffer from epilepsy, which is approximately 50 million people worldwide.

 

The teams of direct marketing representatives and managers have an opportunity to see thousands of people each day. As he put it, “There may not always be an event for all our offices to attend; but, by wearing a simple ribbon, it draws curiosity about epilepsy awareness to those masses.”

 

It was not a requirement to wear a purple ribbon on March 26th; an employee started participating in it years ago. “People would ask her every March 26th ‘what is the ribbon for?’ continued Randy. “Now, years later, every single person—without being asked to—wore a ribbon on March 26th.”

 

White House Marketing representatives attend Walk In The Vines for Autism

 

April is Autism Awareness month. On April 2, 2017, several White House Marketing representatives attended Walk In The Vines for Autism. This event is held each year in Temecula, California. WHM representatives enjoyed the beautiful two mile walk, hot air balloons, and scenic views of Temecula’s Wine Country at the annual walk. According to the coordinator of Walk In the Vines for Autism, approximately 1,000 walkers were present and about 50,000 dollars was raised to go towards families with an Autistic person in the household.

 

Walk In The Vines for Autism is coordinated by Our Nicholas Foundation. Our Nicholas Foundation was started by a local family whose son, Nicholas was diagnosed with autism at a young age. So, his parents started Our Nicholas Foundation to promote Autism Awareness and provide support for families and programs for those diagnosed with Autism. One representative stated, “It is an honor to be a part of a company that has such a good heart. As the father of an autistic son, many companies don’t understand the struggles that go along with inabilities to communicate with your only child. Knowing that Foundations like Our Nicholas Foundation works to help families like mine…well, it touches my heart; I’m so proud to be attending this event today.”
