Local charities benefit from our efforts to bring to the attention of local Chelmsford businesses the type of work they do and the type of assistance they need. We are working with over 300 local groups. Many local businesses grant their employees the opportunity to volunteer for good causes while on work time. We call this "GET" Giving Employee Time.
