Tempe-Based IT Consulting Organization Offers to Match Employee and Community Toy Donations for Local Pediatric Healthcare Facility as Part of Corporate Pledge 1% Initiative

TEMPE, Ariz., Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Isos Technology, a leading Atlassian Platinum and Enterprise Solution Partner, today announced that it has organized a holiday toy drive for Cardon Children's Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona, a pediatric healthcare facility affiliated with Banner Health®, one of the largest nonprofit health care systems in the country. Isos hosts an annual toy drive every December as part of its commitment to Pledge 1%, a movement that empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world. Spearheaded by organizations such as Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce, and Tides, Pledge 1% has generated 5 billion dollars in philanthropy through its top companies. It consists of over 8,500 businesses in 100 countries. Pledge 1% has experienced a 150% growth rate since its inception.

To fulfill its promise to Pledge 1%, Isos called upon its employees, as well as the community, to celebrate the annual holiday season of giving by donating items from an Amazon.com wish list, which were specifically requested by Cardon Children's Medical Center. So far, over 120 gifts have been purchased. Isos has also agreed to match employee and community donations. In total, close to 250 gifts will be delivered to the pediatric medical facility on December 12th at 11:00 AM.

"One of our core values here at Isos Technology is to be generous within the community, and our employees support and volunteer at a variety of philanthropic organizations," says Thad West, CEO of Isos Technology. "I'm absolutely thrilled that our company was able to set this valuable initiative in motion. In the spirit of the holidays, we are so pleased to be able to donate to an incredibly valuable resource in our community, and to hopefully put smiles on the faces of the many pediatric patients at Cardon this December."

Ryan Guard, of Isos Technology, recently recounted his experience as a 10-year-old patient at Cardon. Ryan remembers the impact that the facility's selection of video games had on his stay, and says that "Cardon Children's Medical Center depends on "the generosity of people like you and me to provide toys and games for the kids." He and his fellow co-workers initiated this toy drive to ensure "that every kid at Cardon Children's has the most enjoyable experience that they can while they're getting the care that they need."
