Corizon’s mission is to be the world’s foremost provider of correctional healthcare. But along the way, we want to be effective and impactful members of the communities we call home. It starts with our employees. Their compassionate hearts find numerous ways to contribute to a number of programs, charities and other initiatives.

In addition to St. Jude Children’s Hospital receiving a $5,000 donation from Corizon this year as one of our chosen national charities, Team Corizon also hosts events throughout the year to raise additional funds for the cause. Sites and regional offices are also encouraged to do fundraisers and events to support St. Jude!

One new event this year has been “Breakfast Fridays.”  For a few Fridays in April, Team Corizon representatives from both offices welcomed employees with lots of breakfast goodies!  Employees could purchase a number of breakfast items (cereals, juices, bagels, Red Velvet Pancakes…YUM!) and all proceeds benefit St. Jude.

The events raised almost $500 for St. Jude and the aromas from the foods were a great way to start Friday mornings! Thanks to all Team Corizon members who helped make this event a success, and also a big THANKS to all those who donated!

Whether it’s donations to local civic groups, running in local marathons or campaigns to raise money and awareness for international cancer research organizations, our employees show they care through a variety of outreach efforts. Our job is to provide care. And we don’t limit that to correctional healthcare. We care about our employees, our families and our communities.
