PDMI Brightens the Holidays with Charitable Partnership


POLAND, Ohio (Dec. 27, 2021) — Pharmacy Data Management, Inc. (PDMI), partnered with Brighten Up for the Kids to bring hope and happiness to sick children this holiday season.

“It’s a long-standing tradition of ours to support a charitable organization during the holidays,” said Ashley Snowden, Payroll & Benefits Specialist, and coordinator of this year’s drive. “We have a remarkably generous team that was excited to keep that spirit of goodwill and giving back alive.”

PDMI – a locally based pharmacy data processing company with a nationwide footprint – asked its employees to nominate the charity of their choice for this year’s drive. The requirements were that the organization be a registered 501(c)(3) in need of non-monetary donations, such as clothes, toys, bedding, or non-perishable food items.

After vetting the options to assure they met the requirements, PDMI held a virtual all-employee event for its mostly remote staff during which Brighten Up for the Kids was selected using a randomizer tool. The local non-profit, collects toys, gifts, and funds to support children undergoing treatment at Akron Children’s Hospital of the Mahoning Valley and its special care unit for babies through the holiday season.

Employees selected, purchased, and directly sent to Brighten Up for the Kids urgently needed items for children ranging in age from newborns to teens. Team members gave more than 330 individual items totaling over $2,000, an amount that was matched by PDMI. The matching contribution not only assisted the organization with their holiday drive but will go toward a summer drive that Brighten Up for the Kids conducts. The non-profit collected more than 4,000 toys, clothing items and other donations, making it one of their most successful years.

“Our community has so many deserving organizations,” said Snowden. “This partnership gave us the unique opportunity to support this important initiative in a way that made us feel more connected to each other as a team operating in a hybrid work environment.”
