The XANT community have done a lot of “good” this year. XANT employees have donated a truck full of gifts to the Center For Women and Children in Crisis (CWCIC) in Utah. Gift-giving was part of the Do Good Foundation actions for giving back to the community, and took place the week before Christmas.
Helping Victims of Domestic Violence and Assault
“Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault leave dangerous, life-threatening situations to find refuge in homes like CWCIC. They typically arrive at the shelter with only the clothes on their backs,” said Ryan Breneman, program manager for XANT.
“At CWCIC, they find food, clothes and they receive therapy. They also receive assistance to find independent housing and employment toward self-sufficiency. We hope that our contributions will help the children and mothers in shelters and brighten their Holidays,” added Ryan.
