Philanthropy

 

Our Mission

As representatives for Santa Claus, creating family moments is at the heart of everything we do here at CCA and B every day! We believe that we can use our resources to further our philanthropic mission to:

“Positively impact the lives of children and their families—here and around the world—by providing for their basic needs, thus empowering them to create better communities and meaningful family moments.”

Every year, we extend our support through product donations, direct financial contributions, sponsorships, and the donation of employee time and talent to assist those in need. We seek to work with nonprofit partners around the globe in an effort to impact, empower and bring hope to children and their families.

Our Mission Priorities

As a family-owned company with an entrepreneurial spirit, we are committed to supporting small nonprofit organizations in a big way.

In alignment with our philanthropic mission, we invest in organizations —locally and around the world—that serve children and their families by providing food, clothing, shelter and literacy programs.

 

 

We also have a special place in our hearts for programs supporting disabled veterans and animals.

 


Our Partners

In alignment with our philanthropic mission, we have given investments of time, product donation and/or financial support to a host of local, national and global non-profits. Consistent with our goal to create better communities and meaningful family moments, we look for that special opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of children and their families when selecting our partners.
