#SGWS takes employee volunteerism and giving into the digital age with VolunCheers Online

MIAMI & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits (“Southern Glazer’s”)—the largest North American wine and spirits distribution company—announced today that it has launched a new internal online platform – VolunCheers Online – to take the Company’s grassroots philanthropic efforts into the digital age. The platform, powered by YourCause, LLC, a leader in enterprise corporate social responsibility technology, enables Southern Glazer’s employees across the U.S. and Canada to connect with each other online to easily organize volunteering and fundraising activities, benefitting local and national charitable organizations.

The Company’s current VolunCheers program consists of local market employee groups who gather together to initiate charitable activities in their own communities. By taking the program online, Southern Glazer’s employees can more effectively:

  • Connect with colleagues who share similar charitable passions;
  • Organize and promote volunteering events and fundraising campaigns;
  • Find and sign up for local volunteer events;
  • Log their volunteer hours;
  • Donate to their favorite charities; and
  • Get recognized for the good work they do in their communities.

The Company can also use the platform to quickly create and deploy enterprise-wide corporate social responsibility programs.

“At Southern Glazer’s, we have the most caring and compassionate team members in our industry,” said Wayne E. Chaplin, Chief Executive Officer, Southern Glazer’s. “Every day, across North America, our employees take the initiative to find ways to help people in need in their own local communities. By leveraging the new VolunCheers Online portal, we are more easily able to mobilize the power of our entire workforce to make an even greater difference.”
