WORCESTER BUSINESS GIVES BACK
Donating “human capital” to South Worcester Neighborhood Improvement Corporation (SWNIC)

Worcester, MA December 20, 2012 – Touchstone Consulting Group (a global employee benefits consulting company headquartered in Worcester) has a unique way of giving back this holiday season.

“We’re donating the time and expertise of one of our top company executives, Denise Minor, to the South Worcester Neighborhood Improvement Corporation,” said Touchstone President, David Peck, “Denise brought to our attention the work that SWNIC is doing and their needs. We thought that this would be the most valuable and practical contribution we could make to this highly essential South Worcester nonprofit. This seemed to be a great solution, for both organizations, and it expresses our deep commitment to the Worcester Community.”

Founded in 1969 as part of the war on poverty, South Worcester Neighborhood Improvement Corporation (SWNIC) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), dedicated to improving the quality of life of Worcester residents. This community-based organization serves 350 families per week from four locations in the Worcester area.

“We couldn’t begin to pay for this caliber of service to our organization,” said SWNIC Executive Director, Ron Charette. “Denise brings all of her formidable skills and legal expertise to the forefront, and we are entirely grateful to Touchstone for donating her time to us.”

“I am so grateful that Touchstone decided to do this,” said Denise Minor, “I love both companies and the Worcester area, so this is a perfect blend for me. But I’m not the only one who spends significant time and money for local community needs. Our President, David Peck is involved with other community organizations and our Marketing Director, Lan Goodwin is a mediator at the non-profit Center for Non Violent Solutions in Worcester.
