National Kidney Walk 2019
On June 1, 2019, #TeamExela from the Charlotte, North Carolina area came together as the Exelatech Kidney Kruisers to raise money for the National Kidney Foundation and support those affected by kidney disease by participating in the Charlotte Kidney Walk, for which Exela was a corporate sponsor. This local event is part of the National Kidney Walk program that benefits, whose mission is to improve and extend the lives of those affected by kidney disease. A total of $7,000 was raised through Exela’s efforts.
Blood Cancer Day 2019
This World Blood Cancer Day (28th May), Exela Technologies in partnership with Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) aims at increasing awareness about Leukaemia and providing aid to the underprivileged children currently fighting blood cancer under CPAA’s care.
In honor of Earth Day 2019, Exela partnered with Bare Hands Agriculture, a not-for-profit that teaches underserved communities how to cultivate food by planting trees and building gardens. On May 19, 2019, after several weeks of fundraising, a team of Exela employees and affiliates came together with Barehands in Atlanta to create edible gardens in and for the Chosewood neighborhood. By the end of the day, the community had a new green space and a new understanding of sustainable eating, and Exela had raised nearly $4,000.
