It’s important to give back to our communities.
For the third straight year, Hostopia’s parent company Deluxe offered employees the chance to take part in the 100 Hours to Make a Difference campaign. Select employees are able to donate 100 extra hours of paid time off to the charity organization of their choice.
The 100 Hours to Make a Difference program started in 2015 to celebrate Deluxe’s 100th anniversary, and since then, we’ve heard from employees at locations across the country who want to do more with organizations they already work with, or who are looking to get started in new volunteer opportunities.
Creating a Space for Kids with Disabilities to Play
One of every 59 children in the United States was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in 2018, according to the CDC. With two sons of his own on the spectrum, Ray Wunder, senior director of digital partnerships at Hostopia and Deluxe, knows the challenges families face. That’s what motivates him to donate time with the Melissa Nellesen Center for Autism and work with businesses around the state of Utah to spread awareness.
In addition to his work with the center, Ray volunteers at a local soccer camp for children with special needs in Draper, Utah. As a volunteer and a father, Ray understands how a safe space and volunteers can make a world of difference for children on the spectrum. Today, he participates on a council of parents working to help others raise children with autism.
