COMMUNITY RELATIONS

GMSHRM recognizes the tremendous work that not-for-profit organizations do for our community. For that reason, GMSHRM is proud to support of many worthwhile organizations that impact the Miami-Dade workforce and employers.

Through our networking socials held throughout the year, GMSHRM raises funds to donate to organizations such as Dress for Success, Camillus House, Shake-A-Leg, and many others.  At our annual Holiday Party, we also collect gifts to provide to disadvantaged children through agencies such as Amigos for Kids and Charlee House.   

Through our community involvement, GMSHRM also seek to bring to our members' attention not-for-profit organizations and agencies that offer services or opportunities that are relevant to the HR professional.   


GMSHRM SUPPORTS PAILS 4 HAITI

 
PAILS 4 HAITI
 stands for Providing Aid In Livelihoods and Self-sustainability for the internally displaced persons of Haiti through targeted self-employment initiatives.

With the view that self-employment initiatives are an effective tool for reconstruction and development, PAILS for Haiti provides men and women internally displaced in Haiti, and in need of sustainable livelihoods, with a compact medium by which to employ their skills, become self-sufficient, and thereby less reliant on humanitarian assistance and better able to reintegrate into society.

The design of the project is to create separate “pails” specifically designed to meet the needs of different employment categories. Filled with the pertinent tools, materials, and equipment to carry out each work function, such as construction, carpentry, seamstress, etc., pails will be distributed to internally displaced persons so that they can begin finding work and making a new life for themselves and their families.   

Individuals and/or companies are encourage to support the initiative by buying one or more trade-specific PAILS and thus help someone in Haiti start its own business.

GMSHRM supports Haiti's rebuilding efforts through ART - Americas Relief Team (ART) Get on board today and participate in this self-employment initiative.  For more information, please contact http://americasrelief.org/13Pails/index.php
