TO BE DETERMINED...
Contact event host for details.
A Benefit Corporation is a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The point? Triple bottom line businesses balance the demands of social responsibility with the demands of traditional success: profit.
Much like Main Street Businesses, they are receptive and responsive to the needs of stakeholders, not just the greatest return to shareholder. They take their commitments to their community seriously -- charitable giving, paid volunteerism for employees, and active engagement programs are hallmarks of these businesses.
To celebrate the shift in corporate law from profit first to people first, Buffalo First will be partnering with the United Way of Western NY, local businesses, and residents to paint a community center.
We invite you to show in a show of support!
**This is an age 10+ with parental participation event and all volunteers will receive a free t-shirt!
