Changing Corporate Culture:
Gifting Hope to Foster Families
January 19, 2022
Genetics Institute of America (GIA) takes pride in the community we are a part of and has created a corporate culture that aims to play a greater role in community solutions. Local communities are suffering and, without support from their businesses, will continue to decline and waste away in paralyzing cycles of homelessness, childhood trauma and hunger. Genetics Institute of America refuses to stand by. We are convinced that by putting in the work, we help contribute to the revitalization of our local community, specifically within initiatives that focus on the individuals and families we serve. This series will delve into the philanthropic efforts of Genetics Institute and how we strive to change lives every single day.
DELRAY BEACH, FL – Since 1997, 4KIDS has been one of the leading foster care agencies in South Florida and the country. 4KIDS exists to bring hope, homes, and healing to kids and families in crisis across South Florida and the Treasure Coast. In partnership with local churches, businesses, and government agencies, 4KIDS is committed to redefining foster care in our community, one child at a time.
During the holiday season, the team at Genetics Institute of America wanted to work together to bring joy and hope to our community and the families we serve. The 4KIDS Gift of Hope Annual Toy drive presented a special opportunity to remind kids in crisis that they are not forgotten. We helped 4KIDS to collect unwrapped toys and gift cards to ensure each foster child, teen, and young adult in their care has a present to open on Christmas Day. The effort was rewarding and a terrific time for the GIA team to connect with wonderful people and an amazing organization.
Genetics Institute of America’s goal to promote healthy generations of families through genetics aligns perfectly with the goal of 4KIDS and their desire to break the generational cycle of foster care. Our alignment of missions will better the community of South Florida and communities across the nation. Genetics Institute of America commits to caring about the health of the individual through genetic testing and creating a corporate culture of generosity through partnerships with organizations like 4KIDS.
