Philanthropy Highlight: Giving The Basics

Giving the Basics started in the Midwest in 2011 when a small group of people came together to help a family in need. The family was struggling to make ends meet. They were requesting food donations from the local pantry, but their basic necessities of life like shampoo, toothpaste, laundry detergent, diapers and toilet paper were not available. These products were not covered by government assistance programs. The family was too embarrassed to ask for these items from other sources, so sadly they went without. The concerned group of people decided something needed to be done. They pooled their resources and agreed to help the family until they were able to help themselves. Giving the Basics was born.

We are proud to regularly volunteer with Giving The Basics at their warehouse helping to sort needed items prior to distribution! Our team recently spoke with Executive Director, Teresa Hamilton, regarding their mission. Check out our highlight video below!

SVG Wins Kansas City Business Journal Fast 50 And Top 150 Private Companies

We are proud to announce that we’ve received two Kansas City Business Journal awards in recent months. SVG was named to KCBJ’s Fast 50, given to the fastest-growing businesses by average annual revenue growth between 2014-2016. Additionally, we made our first appearance on the Top 150 Private Companies list, which is a list of the top 150 private companies based on 2016 revenue.

Both lists come during another year of rapid growth for SVG. COO, Jeffery Anderson spoke about this growth by saying, “Awards come in many forms, and to now be recognized for successful growth and financial strength is an indicator of doing things the right way. Our culture is focused on creating value for our people, customers, and community, which is a strong foundation for our long-term success.”

CEO Chris Giuliani also reflected on what these awards mean to SVG. He said, “I'm very proud of what this company has been able to accomplish. While we will certainly celebrate these recognitions, they also fuel our motivation to continue innovating and pushing forward. We run fast all the time, so celebrating awards is a great way to pause and reflect on the effort that happens every day at SVG. We have an awesome team here and they deserve every single recognition they receive.”
