The philanthropic arm of SIS delivered over 368 presents to under-resourced children and youth throughout the U.S.
Alpharetta, GA – December 22, 2022 – Surgical Information Systems (SIS), an industry leader focused exclusively on delivering surgical information technology (IT) to ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and hospitals, is pleased to announce the impact of its philanthropic arm, SIS Cares’, annual charitable holiday drive. The success of the Joy Unwrapped campaign resulted in 368 gifts being delivered to 144 under-resourced children and youth across the country this holiday season.
In association with the digital giving platform, Daymaker, SIS associates accessed a unique company webpage where they were able to view the profiles of children based on their local city, learn about their interests and aspirations, and shop their tailored wish lists.
Within the first 24 hours of the campaign, SIS associates met over 30% of the campaign goal of 150 gifts given. Donations continued to come in, and by the end of the campaign, with SIS matching donations, 368 gifts were purchased as a part of the holiday drive.
Daymaker is a compassion platform that partners with high-impact 501c3 nonprofit organizations working in communities facing systemic and persistent challenges. Their nonprofit partners provide descriptions, needs, and interests of the children they serve on a day-to-day basis, and Daymaker takes that information and creates profiles for each child on their website – including a uniquely-tailored wish list that donors can shop from. The purchased gifts are delivered to the children and include messages of support and encouragement.
“Having the opportunity to learn about each child, put time and care into selecting gifts for them, and send them words of encouragement has been extremely impactful for not only the children receiving the gifts but also our company as a whole”, said Tom Stampiglia, SIS Chief Executive Officer. “We are so thankful to all of our associates who have stepped up with commitments to ensure the children served by Daymaker experience the joy of the holiday season that every child deserves to know.”
SIS Cares started in January 2014 with "SIS Cares Day of Service," a single-day event where SIS associates volunteered at one of several charities in the Atlanta area, home to SIS’s headquarters. Now, SIS associates can take one day off per year to volunteer at the charity of their choice as well as participate in charity drives throughout the year.
