Community Service

In 2019, Advance launched a new initiative to continue our deep history of giving back to the community. The Initiative dubbed, We Live and Believe This Stuff, a play on our iconic tagline, is aimed to make an even greater impact in the community that we've called home for over 55 years. The basis of the initiative is to activate Advance’s 150+ employees to provide greater support of Advance’s local nonprofit partnerships and the causes they believe in.

“We believe that it is our responsibility and honor as a local organization to advocate for and take steps to influence true change in the community that has been so good to us for nearly 55 years. We realized that when we mobilize our entire workforce in this way, we can contribute over 1,250 hours of community service and that can have an incredible impact,” stated Advance president, Jeff Elkin.

This initiative was jump-started by a 2018 employee engagement survey that Advance conducted which proved something that the company has always known – Advance truly cares about the community in which they live and work – and their team feels the same way. With an ever-present objective to offer employees opportunities that enrich their lives (in and outside of work), the survey aimed to uncover meaningful ways in which they may support the team. One of the items that the survey revealed was that employees craved opportunities to take action in our community, but were unsure of how to start.

Advance is proud to continue its long upheld legacy of community service by empowering their team with the resources and opportunities to positively impact the community with their peers. The We Live and Believe This Stuff program seeks to fulfill the following goals:

    *Perpetuate the Advance culture of giving that Advance founders, Alan and Lois Elkin, created 55 years ago
    *Perpetuate strong community partnerships with both individuals and Advance Business Systems
    *Foster relationships among team members and local community
    *Provide employees with experiences and opportunities that they may have not have been exposed to otherwise
