Ares Direct Giving Back to the San Jose Community

​Ares Direct associates recently partnered with the Green Education Foundation to sponsor a clothing drive. The firm’s President discussed goals for future charity events and giveback opportunities. 

“We don’t want to be thought of as just another business in the San Jose area. It’s our desire to be known as community leaders. Supporting good causes helps us establish our credibility as a firm that cares about doing more than just business,” explained Jeremy, Ares Direct’s President.

This commitment to being a positive force in San Jose led Jeremy and his team to partner with the Green Education Fund, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching sustainable living. Together, they ran a clothing drive for almost the entire month of April.

"While some might not believe charitable giving to be an essential function, it is for us."

“The Ares Direct Clothing Drive was great!” Jeremy stated. “It took place from April 5 to April 28. We collected gently-used clothes and shoes. It was a huge success, and I’m extremely proud of the way the entire team jumped in. Everyone was involved.” 

Ares Direct’s President Outlines Giveback Goals

Being new to the San Jose area, Jeremy and his team are looking to make a positive impact right away. The Ares Direct Clothing Drive was just the first of many charitable events on the horizon for the firm. Jeremy plans on putting together a food shelter service day, a toy drive, and a food drive, just to name a few. 

“I believe that having goals is necessary for growth and achievement,” declared Jeremy. “I set personal and professional targets for myself, and as a team we determine objectives for Ares Direct. Sales, revenue, profit and loss, internal promotions, growth – these are all areas that are essential to the business, so we have metrics attached to them. While some might not believe charitable giving to be an essential function, it is for us. So we’ve set goals for how many ways we can give back to San Jose.” 

While the firm’s people support good causes because they feel like it’s the right thing to do, companies do reap benefits from being philanthropic, Jeremy explained. For instance, a business that identifies and meets community needs helps its neighborhood thrive. This raises the standard of living for everyone in the area, and invites greater economic opportunity. 

“Getting involved with organizations like Green Education Foundation helps our team members develop their professional networks as well,” Jeremy stated. “We meet professionals from a different industry who are just as passionate about making the world a better place as we are. There’s no telling where those connections might lead. I think it’s the definition of a win/win when we can do the right thing for our community and do well for ourselves too.”
