Matter’s Helping Hands initiative encourages a nationwide community service effort that is rewarding and fulfilling for all employees. With 1000 plus hours of impactful volunteer work done each year, Matter is truly making an impact on its surrounding communities.
With time to spare, Matter employees surpassed the volunteer goals set for this year:
- 1,000+ hours volunteered
- 60+ events held
- 60+ people met their personal goal of 8 hours
- For those that met their personal goal, Matter made a monetary donation to the charity of their choice.
Our 2018 Impact
“I just wanted to let you know that Matter’s troop of volunteers were amazing! It is a big job and they knocked it out of the park. We are so grateful for their time and energy. As I have said before, Matter employees are welcome to help out at Community Giving Tree anytime, we love them!”

2018 Pub Club Bell Ringer Awards
In June, Matter was the only company recognized in the Agency Citizenship/Pro Bono Work category for our Helping Hands program. It was a true testament to all of our efforts!
On top of our volunteer efforts in our own communities, all of our offices come together to celebrate national days throughout the year including Pride, World Mental Health Day and Unity Day. In the photo below, our employees wore orange to show we are united against bullying.
Looking Towards 2019
Heading into 2019, we are excited that our employee growth and the addition of a Pittsburgh office will open the door to new opportunities. To push ourselves further, we have increased our agency-wide hourly goal to 1,200 hours and the goal for each employee to 10 hours.
Thank you to all of our employees and the organizations we have worked with this year!
