Express Employment Professionals Expands on Their Mission

 
Albany, NY, December 31, 2019 – “In lieu of holiday gifts for our clients this year, we’re going to give that money to local charities” said franchise owner Jordan Modiano.


Express Employment Professionals, a national sponsor of Children’s Miracle Network, will also donate money this holiday season to the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med and the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.


The Melodies Center, the region’s only pediatric cancer center, sees approximately 70 new patients and more than 6,000 patient visits each year. Patients receive care from pediatric hematologists and oncologists, pediatric neuro-oncologists, highly trained chemotherapy nurses, a pediatric social worker, a case worker and a child life specialist. In addition, the program is supported by all of Albany Med’s pediatric subspecialists.


The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society (MHHS) is the oldest and largest animal protection organization in New York's Capital Region, serving Albany, Rensselaer and surrounding counties. In addition to providing shelter and care for stray, abused and unwanted animals, they provide low-cost spay/neuter and wellness services for pet owners who could otherwise not afford to properly care for their companions.


Deciding which worthy charity to donate to was made easy via a survey to the Express Employment Professionals clients. An email was sent informing clients Express would not be delivering wine bottles, cakes, pies, or other gifts this holiday season. Instead, on behalf of all our great clients and associates we will be making two charitable contributions to Capital Region organizations. The e-mail provided a list of 8 local charities and asked the clients to vote and pick which ones should receive the donations. The participation and feedback was fantastic.


Every charity received multiple votes but there were two that edged out the others. Sixty percent of the donation will be awarded to the primary choice, The Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Albany Med and the remaining 40% will go to the secondary choice, The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.


“Our mission revolves around helping people and this is just a way to expand on that mission,” said Modiano. There will be a check presentation to The Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med on Wednesday January 8th at 11:00AM at the Melodies Center. The date and time for the MHHS has yet to be determined.


Express Employment Professionals of Albany began operation in September of 2015 and the Saratoga office opened December 9th, 2019. Express services the Capital Region with temporary and full-time employees in a variety of fields. With more than 800 franchise locations worldwide, Express generated over three billion in sales and employed over half a million people in 2018. Our long-term goal is to put a million people to work annually.
