Phacil has a strong commitment, not only to our customers and employees, but also to the communities in which we live and work. We believe that it is part of our corporate responsibility to support and enrich local communities and our country through our involvement in charitable and philanthropic activities.
Phacil is a consistent financial contributor and also an avid volunteer of time and resources to various nonprofit organizations, especially those focused on at-risk youth and the military community. We provide support to Summer Search and Immaculate Conception Academy (ICA), both of which offer educational and professional development assistance to disadvantaged children. Phacil has also supported De La Salle Academy, Don Bosco Preparatory High School, Fordham Preparatory School, San Mateo Public Library, and a Child Literacy Program at Schriever Air Force Base. Phacilians also lend a hand at the Second Harvest Food Bank.
In the Military community, Phacil is an “Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS)” partner, an Army program that connects government agencies and civilian companies with qualified soldiers, providing them with priority-hiring status upon completing their service in the Army. We have also been a contributor to Operation Homefront and USO World Headquarters. At Boulder Crest, employees helped in a major cleanup effort, removing debris, pulling vines and branches from trees, and clearing the river banks to turn the property into a safer and more beautiful place for veterans to spend time with their families.
This year Phacil once again contributed by sponsoring a foursome at the Operation Homefront Annual Golf Tournament to benefit military family's and the Wounded Warrior project. Phacil is a proud sponsor of this very worthwhile organization that contributes and serves America's military families.
In 2017, the Phacil Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) committee organized an event with SOME (So Others Might Eat) in Washington, DC. Phacil employees and family members volunteered at SOME’s dining room to serve a warm and nutritious meal to people in need. Phacil volunteered for both breakfast and lunch shifts. Each shift serves an average of 375 guests, so both shifts served a total of 750 guests. This event made a positive impact and helped those in need restore hope and dignity. So Others Might Eat is a nonprofit organization which seeks to help deal with poverty in Washington, D.C.. SOME provides food, clothing, and healthcare services to the poor and homeless. In addition, SOME provides job training, counselling, and low-cost housing, and other services to "break the cycle of homelessness." Please visit the SOME website at : www.some.org for more information or to volunteer.
