The holidays are upon us and during this time of year, we are reminded that there are others who could benefit from a little extra help. Despite individual traditions or preferences, around the holidays one thing that becomes abundantly clear is the vast amount of need that exists. This year, as part of Alpine’s Real World marketing campaign and with much thought and consideration in lieu of sending a traditional printed card or gift, we would make a donation to a charity of Alpine staff members’ choosing. We know that in the “real world” it’s not just about creating tests, it’s about the interconnectivity of the the human race and the part we all play in helping to make things better.

In case you’re curious, the parameters for the five charities on which our team members voted include the following: Charities must, 1. have a national presence, not just regional–Alpine’s employee-owners all work remotely, around the country; 2. not be “controversial” meaning it doesn’t highlight or support any differences in race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender, support partisan politics or have negative brand recognition around political topics and/or financial accountability and, most importantly 3. the charity had to have a proven, superb track record with fund disbursement, verifiable through a third party source.

We are proud to announce that Alpine Testing Solutions made a donation in the name of our clients and staff to:

We believe that the finest gifts are those that serve others. Alpine is proud to offer a corporate matching gift program that encourages our team to participate in charitable giving year around. Below is a listing of worthy organizations that our team members support, we encourage you to offer them your support as well, because together, we can make a difference in the real world.

We hope you have the opportunity to take some time to relax with family, friends and loved ones in celebration of the season. From the Alpine family to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays and a bright, prosperous new year!
