This year ACE Ticket kicked off its end of the year holiday festivities by celebrating the mission of Cradles to Crayons and volunteering in The Giving Factory®. As an ACE Ticket “Charity of Choice”, Cradles to Crayons closely exemplify the mission, values and awareness building that are closest to the heart of the ACE Embrace program. Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have a need.
38 ACE Ticket employees gathered at Cradles to Crayons and had fun rolling up our sleeves in The Giving Factory®. The staff and leadership was friendly and helpful and the facility is large and clean. Cradles to Crayons has a number of options for the community to participate including, youth groups, individuals and corporations. Together we sorted through bins of new and gently used clothing for children to prepare for the next crew to assemble packages to distribute to local children in need. In all, we were able to sort enough clothing for 210 children! After working up an appetite, we had a family style BBQ meal and celebrated our time together giving back. We also celebrated two stellar employees who have been with ACE Ticket for 15 and 20 years respectively April Martin and Matt Freedman.
Our loyal customers have given ACE Ticket the the opportunity to focus on giving back to our community and our employees have volunteered numerous hours of community service over the years. ACE Embrace is the philanthropic arm of ACE Ticket and in 2017 and 2018 alone, ACE Embrace contributed over $300,000 to local charities. This has always been, and remains, a very important part of what we do here at ACE Ticket.
