Community Involvement Opportunities
It's a great way to give back and help in your community!

Volunteering in your community is a win-win!

We have had dealers tell us that they have volunteered or donated many times since they have been in business for 25+ years. They just haven’t recently. Well, now is a great opportunity! Your local non-profit certainly appreciates it and they see it as a win! You meet new people and gain new contacts. You also should feel pretty good about helping out AND you can now list your volunteer work on your new website. It will set you apart from your local competitors. Your clients and potential clients want to know more about you. They’ll definitely be happy to see that you are involved with your/their community. If you are unable to donate your time or give a donation, then how about 1000 color copies or prints? Every non-profit can use 1000 color prints of something. It will be a big help to them while costing you very little time and money. It’s really easy. First, ask them if they could use 1000 color prints. (You can call them or even simply email them. (CLICK HERE for an email sample!) I’m sure they’ll say yes and email you a file. You print it (don’t forget to ask to write donated by XYZ Business Solutions with your website and phone # on the bottom) and then you simply drop it off. Now, you feel good, helped people in your community and may even get a few new customer from your help! (BONUS!)

This works – we hear the success stories from our dealers all-the-time! To help make this easier, we made a list of different non-profits that may be in your area. (no particular order)  If you click the button, it will take you to their website with a link to their closest location to you. Good luck and thank you for pitching in!
