VTLO Celebrates the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

Vitiello Communications Group (VTLO) has once again joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
In honor of our customers around the world, VTLO has made donations to World Vision and Elijah’s Promise. Through our donations to World Vision’s microloan program, we carry on a long tradition of enabling women entrepreneurs in developing countries to build their businesses, care for their families, and enrich their communities. By providing funding to Elijah’s Promise, a local soup kitchen in New Brunswick, NJ, we support our neighbors in need.
Earlier this year, VTLO was named a finalist in New Jersey Monthly’s Great Oak Awards, which honors the state’s businesses for their work on behalf of social and charitable causes and nonprofits. We were acknowledged for our innovative volunteer program, 25 Points of Light, which highlights the nonprofit organizations we support and the diverse volunteer activities in which we participate.
VTLO has also made donations to several nonprofit organizations to honor its team members, who have chosen to forgo company holiday gifts and instead benefit a charity of their choice.
