The Quest Cares Program is a charitable way for Quest employees to participate in local initiatives to better our local market. Initiatives are involvement in causes that are inspiring to the Quest team. Causes include giving back to local communities via donations, fundraising events and volunteerism via team bonding activities. The program was launched in 2018, hosts 2+ events per month and was the recipient of The Maryland Multi-Housing Association's "Making a Difference" Award.
Quest is thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer with The Baltimore Hunger Project. We enjoy packing lunches and writing inspiration notes for the children who receive their lunches and we are honored to give back in supporting ending the hunger gap in Baltimore. Baltimore Hunger Project is dedicated to eliminating the growing problem of weekend childhood hunger by feeding bodies and minds. We are bridging the gap between Friday and Monday by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner. We raise awareness about the effects of hunger by establishing partnerships with community members, other organizations, and decision makers.
Every 2nd Thursday of every month, our team is proud to volunteer at Paul's Place in Southwest, Baltimore. Paul’s Place is a catalyst and leader for change, improving the quality of life in the Southwest Baltimore communities. Paul’s Place provides programs, services, and support that strengthen individuals and families, fostering hope, personal dignity and growth. The individuals and families living in Southwest Baltimore City will have full access to high quality health care, education, employment, and housing along with the other support necessary for stability and self-sufficiency.
Quest sponsors two business days per year for each employee to donate their time to local causes within the Quest Cares Program. We also have a donation program where our team can choose to donate five dollars a month to a charity of their choice. We believe giving back helps the world and we provide many ways to do so whether it be in time or donation. #QuestCares #Inspiration #Integrity #Innovation
