Giving Back

Written By: Emily Qualls, Onboarding Specialist, Administration


At Reliance One, we build teams who work hard, play hard, but this goes much further than the office. More importantly, we like to give back to the community. From golf sponsorships to flip flops in the office, we support and strengthen the communities around us. We call this the R1 Impact.


On the Course: What better way to play and give back than a round of golf? You can find us on the course at some of these upcoming outings.

  • Highlander Hacker 2017 – August 13th, 2017 (Benefiting Rochester Athletes)
  • 2017 Lear Golf Classic – September 11th, 2017 (Benefiting Winning Futures) 
  • The Cooper Standard Foundation – September 25th, 2017 (2017 Charity Golf Outing)

Red Nose Day: So, a little less “play” and back to that “work hard” stuff. Okay, okay, so maybe we clown around in the office sometimes, too, but for good reason! On March 24th, R1 Impact took it a little bit further from home when every Reliance One employee was given a red nose to wear for Red Nose Day. Together, we can make a difference in a child’s life by raising money and awareness for kids around the world living in poverty, and have a little fun doing it, too!


Dreams Come True: The Rainbow Connection makes dreams come true for Michigan children with life threatening illnesses and offers support to the families. This hits us close to home since, well, it is close to home, and some of the children associated with program are children we know. The typical amount to grant a wish is around $5,000, give or take. Reliance One has been fortunate enough to sponsor 3 wishes since our journey with The Rainbow Connection, among other contributions through fundraisers like our Christmas Toy Drive and Bring Your Child to Work Day – Community Service Project. In order to make dreams come true, we need help from our team. We support our wish fund through some of these fun events!


Hat Day: There’s no rivalry the like one that occurs when everyone in the office gets to wear their favorite sport team’s gear! The R1 team made a monetary donation to wear their favorite hat for the day.


Flip Flop Day: Our team got to bring the idea of the outside sunshine into the office as they slipped out of their high heels and into their flip flops for the day!


Left, Right, Center: Grab the dice! Nothing kicks off an afternoon better than an intense game of LRC just after lunch. Each employee contributes $3 to the game. The winner takes half the pot, and the other half goes into our wish fund. If we’re lucky, we have time for another round before we call Zone.


Wrapping for a Cause: You’ll find us at Carson’s of Rochester near the holiday season wrapping customers’ purchases for donations. We may not wrap it like Santa’s elves, but hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?


We’re building teams here at Reliance One – teams who help communities and each other grow, and we have fun doing it!
