At ShopCore we are committed to protecting the environment and to improving the lives of those around us. We derive satisfaction from knowing that our charitable efforts and sustainability initiatives are leaving our communities better than we found them.
Globally, hunger is reaching historic levels. According to Feeding America, 1 in 6 U.S. children struggle with hunger. At ShopCore, we feel it is unacceptable for any child to go hungry. We believe that when people are empowered to make a difference and care for others in need, entire communities are lifted.
What began as one company’s fight has grown into a collaborative partnership whose mission is to fight food insecurity. We’ve joined forces with nine corporate partners who support our mission to end child hunger and help provide our neighbors with the food they need for a better tomorrow.
CoreGiving holds various fundraising initiatives throughout the year, designed to benefit our communities in need. Bracket Battle is held annually and is our largest fundraising activity of the year. During our 2021 fundraiser, we raised more than $1,200,000 and were able to provide over 6,000,000 meals to thousands of families in need.
We proudly advocate for all our teammates through our SEED & DEI initiatives.
SEED is our female-focused program designed to foster professional and personal growth through targeted events, enhanced relationships, strategic business development opportunities and career direction. We strive to support, empower, engage and develop our female employees at all levels.
Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee fosters a professional environment that is diverse, equitable, inclusive and supportive. We are committed to sustaining this environment by recognizing, celebrating and leveraging each colleague’s value, unique perspectives and contributions.
We continually evaluate our portfolio, searching for opportunities to improve our operational efficiency, reduce our environmental footprint, and benefit the community.
For example, new energy efficiency strategies at The Shops at Skyview in Flushing, NY eliminated 5,400 tons of carbon, equivalent to eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions from 1,046 passenger vehicles for one year and the consumption of 554,477 gallons of gasoline. Our collective work has made an impact equal to planting almost three Central Park’s worth of trees.
