WEST WARWICK, R.I., April 17, 2009 — Arpin customers now can help make a difference in the life of a child affected by poverty. Arpin Group, Inc. announced this month that it will support Save the Children's work until at least 2011.
For every customer satisfaction survey completed at the end of an international move, Arpin will make a donation to the worldwide children's charity.
Arpin employees will also have an opportunity to support Save the Children by participating in Arpin's "casual clothing day" program.
"Since we have an international focus for our moving business at Arpin Group, we wanted to team up with a charity that serves a global cause," said David Arpin, President and CEO of Arpin Group, Inc. "Our past customer survey programs have been very successful in raising money for charity while providing our customers with an added incentive for completing their post-move evaluations."
The charity's emergency, recovery and development programs address both the immediate and long-term needs of children struggling to overcome poverty, which is often made worse by war and disaster.
Save the Children USA is one of 28 members of the International Save the Children Alliance, a global network of independent organizations working to ensure the well-being and protection of children in 120 countries. Founded in 1932 to aid families in Appalachia during the Great Depression, Save the Children USA today serves 41 million children and 25 million others, including parents, community members, local organizations and government agencies.
