Giving Thanks + Giving Back
During this season of gratitude, we want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to our clients and partners. We are honored to work with you, and we appreciate the work that you and our elected officials do every day to make New York the greatest City in the world.
Giving back is an important part of our culture at Capalino+Company. In this regard, we are pleased to share a few opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way this holiday season.
On behalf of the entire Capalino+Company team, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.
All the best,
The Capalino Team

If you are not able to give back your time this Thanksgiving, keep in mind that many nonprofits are left without support outside of the holiday months. Consider volunteering your time after the holidays to expand support for these and other nonprofit organizations.
Additionally, consider giving gifts that give back. Many companies offer products that include a donation to or support of labor from underrepresented and at-risk communities. Check out some ideas for ethical gifts here.
