MPI Expands Corporate Social Responsibility Efforts for WEC18

WHAT:                 Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has planned a variety of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives for the 2018 MPI World Education Congress (WEC18). These efforts, which will support local charities and help create a model and methodology by which future meetings all over the world can emulate, include the following:

 

Food Drive for Second Helpings


Second Helpings takes unserved food from hotels and other entities and distributes it through 85 organizations in the local community, serving some 4,000 meals per day. The unserved food from WEC18 will go directly from the convention center caterer to Second Helpings, so this is one food drive in which there will be no need for attendees to bring canned goods or other food items.

 

Children’s Books for the Julian Center

 

WEC18 attendees are invited to bring children’s books, which will be donated to the Julian Center. Located in downtown Indianapolis, this shelter helps families affected by domestic abuse and other life crises.

 

Conference Supplies for Teacher’s Treasures

 

WEC18 attendees can donate leftover giveaways, papers and supplies from previous conferences and events to help local students and teachers in Indianapolis. Teacher’s Treasures assists more than 2,400 teaches from 250 schools each year with getting the school supplies their students need.

 

Makeup and Apparel Items for Dress for Success

 

Dress for Success Indianapolis helps women seeking to get back on their feet and rejoin the workforce put together professional-looking wardrobes that will help them gain employment. WEC18 attendees are encouraged to bring accessories such as mascara, knee-high hosiery, inexpensive jewelry, small purses and cell phone cases (new or gently used).

 

Paint Fest with the Foundation for Hospital Art

 

WEC18 attendees can support the Foundation for Hospital Art by painting panels of murals that will be displayed at local Indianapolis hospitals. Since 1984, this organization has been committed to brightening the walls of healthcare facilities around the world.

 

Cheeriodicals Team Builder and Donations

 

The Cheeriodicals initiative will involve team building with WEC18 attendees creating and delivering gift boxes for patients at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital and the Riley Children’s Hospital. The gift boxes will include items such as stuffed animals, crafts, toys, puzzles and children\'s magazines – all of which will be supplied onsite by Cheeriodicals, a national corporate team building company that conducts philanthropic events benefiting children’s hospitals, Ronald McDonald Houses, veterans’ hospitals and other charities across the country.

 

WEC18 has been designed using the ISO 20121 Event Sustainability Management System as a guide and framework; read the related WEC18 sustainability blog article. It is scheduled for June 2 – 5, 2018, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
