On Thursday, December 6, the All Points PR team participated in a clothing & accessory drive and self-defense class for our Q4 Positive Impact program.
To partner with WINGS, an organization committed to helping adults and children escape domestic violence and abuse, the All Points team collected bags full of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes and other accessories for donation. These items were given to WINGS Resale shops, as proceeds from these shops account for 25% of the program’s budget.
The team then participated in a self-defense class at the Alpha Krav Maga Compound in Northbrook. The national training center delivered a two-hour class packed with demonstrations, partnered drills and a Q&A session offering essential tips for defense in a variety of violent situations. At the end of our session, the instructors offered a generous gift of a week of free self-defense classes for each team member and a guest.
The All Points team strives to positively impact the communities in which we live and work through our philanthropic and volunteer efforts through our Positive Impact program. We are passionate about our commitment to corporate social responsibility and making a positive impact on meaningful social, community and environmental organizations.
The team enjoyed a rewarding experience by giving to those in need, while gaining perspective on escaping violence through the self-defense class. We look forward to the next Positive Impact program and the cause we will support.
