Unwavering Corporate and Employee Commitment to CourionCares Philanthropy Program Aids Local Charities Year After Year

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Courion(R) Corporation, leaders in access assurance and compliance, today announced that CourionCares, the company's corporate citizenship program, has raised more than $100,000 in support of local charities over the past eight years. Courion's eighth annual charity auction held on Friday, Nov. 7, set an all-time record by generating more than $16,500 to benefit The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care and The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism.

"I appreciate Courion's consistent support of our foundation. Despite the difficult economic environment, it is very admirable that Courion continues to champion their charitable efforts on behalf of so many people in need throughout New England," said Scott Neely, executive director of The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care. "It's a testament not only to the leadership of the company, but most importantly, to the employees who continue to be so generous, even in these uncertain times."

Breaking the $14,000 record set at last year's auction, Courion employees raised more than $16,500 by participating in a raffle and live and silent auctions where they bid on small- and large-ticket items donated by local establishments, vendors and partners. Items ranged from gift cards and sports tickets to autographed memorabilia and weekend getaways. Mix 98.5 radio show broadcaster Kelly Malone returned as the official auctioneer, and representatives from The Neely Foundation and the Flutie Jr. Foundation, were also present to represent their charities.

"At Courion, corporate citizenship is a cornerstone of both our culture and our business in general. We view it as a natural extension of our deep and steady commitment to our access assurance customers -- a way of serving and giving back to local and national communities in need," said Chris Zannetos, president and CEO of Courion. "Our employees have been key to the success of CourionCares, having shown incredible dedication to it over the years, whether times are good or bad -- with the average total contribution since the program's inception now nearly $1,000 per employee."

Courion's charity auction is the yearly culmination of its ongoing philanthropic efforts through CourionCares, a range of programs designed to raise both cash and non-cash proceeds for organizations in need, including: SnackCourier, which donates proceeds from refreshments purchased by Courion employees to charity year-round; CoatCourier, a coat donation drive; Holiday Gift Drive and the School Supply Drive. In addition to The Neely Foundation and The Flutie Jr. Foundation, CourionCares has made donations to The American Cancer Society, The Leary Firefighters Foundation, The Red Sox Foundation and Worcester, Mass. Public Schools, among others.
