As a global organization, we at BDP understand the importance of contributing to the local communities in which we operate, and where we live, work, play, and raise our own families around the world.
Volunteers can apply to serve as BDP Cares Committee members, with regional teams leading localized efforts and give-back events.
As BDP’s Chief Administration Officer Frank Bolte said, “Help isn’t something that’s only needed in one specific region; every community needs to be enriched, every community needs to be helped.”
The inception of the BDP Cares program came after Superstorm Sandy, which hit the Northeast US in October 2012. From there, the BDP Cares Employee Relief Fund (ERF) a 501(c)(3) was officially established. The mission of the ERF was to provide basic necessities and temporary relief to assist full-time employees who suffered as a result of the disaster. So - what began as an employee relief fund for employees impacted by natural disasters around the world has really evolved to include charitable donations to local organizations within the communities that we operate - and even more impactful, the amount of hours our employees spend giving back under the BDP Cares umbrella, doing fantastic work in their local communities. Thus far, over $230,000 USD has been raised!
These efforts are championed by our employees throughout the organization, but BDP’s commitment to corporate social responsibility starts from the very top. At BDP, we’re a family, not a workforce. BDP Cares above any other program within the organization truly exemplifies this spirit - from our shareholders, including Frank Bolte, who was just named Humanitarian of the Year by the Make-A-Wish® Foundation in New Jersey.
