12 MONTHS OF GIVING
GreenBox is a people-centric company focused on giving back to the community and helping empower individuals to make a difference not only in their own lives but in the lives of those around them. With this goal in mind we developed GreenBox Gives and 12 Months of Giving. With 12 Months of Giving we choose a local non-profit whose mission helps empower individuals in our community. We feature one of these non-profits each month through our website and local television. Our goal is to raise awareness for these wonderful organizations that are doing so much to improve the lives of people in our community. If you have any questions about GreenBox Gives or are a local business looking for advise on how to start your own give back program, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
