With a $10,000 donation from Morgan Drexen CEO Walter Ledda, Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems has pledged a total of $35,000 to the hospital.
Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
This week marks the one-year anniversary of a pledge by legal support services company Morgan Drexen (http://www.morgandrexen.com) to CHOC Children’s, and the company reports it is on track to fulfill its promise to the children of Orange County.
“It helps me to know our employees care so much about the community,” said CEO Walter Ledda, who himself donated $10,000 this year.
It was this week last year, Morgan Drexen had originally pledged to donate a total of $25,000 over the course of five years. But with Ledda’s donation, the total pledged to CHOC Children’s from Morgan Drexen is now $35,000.00.
But it’s not just the executives getting in on the giving spirit.
Each month, the company ditches its corporate dress code for “Denim Day,” which allows employees to wear jeans for the day if they make a donation toward CHOC. Denim Day for the company is this Friday, June 22, 2012.
CHOC Children’s was recently named one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals by US News & World Report.
“Because of Walter’s extra donation, we have to change our “CHOC-O-Meter” in the lobby,” said company CFO David Walker.
“It was made to reach a total of $25,000. But now we have to change it to make it reflect our new commitment,” he said.
In addition to the Denim Day events, Morgan Drexen also supports the CHOC Follies. The musical production, which recently celebrated its 15th year, has raised over $5 million to date for the hospital. This year, three Morgan Drexen employees participated in the musical extravaganza and collectively raised more than $5,000 for the new CHOC tower.
The Costa Mesa based company of more than 300 provides integrated software solutions and paraprofessional support services to attorneys across the country.
