Cultivating a Culture of Giving
BullsEye is dedicated to helping those in need in Detroit and the surrounding community. BullsEye promotes an environment of giving and we encourage our employees to donate their time and resources in the spirit of helping others. Below you will find some of the organizations that BullsEye supports.
Forgotten Harvest Food Bank
A total of 126 BullsEye employees volunteered on 14 shifts over 10 days during the month of June 2019 to assemble a wide variety of food packages and deliver to members of the community that need it most.
Forgotten Harvest’s mission is to fight hunger and food insecurity by providing families in need with fresh and nutritious food free of charge. In 2018 alone, 42,000,000 pounds of food have been distributed.
Detroit Cristo Rey High School: Corporate Work Study Program
BullsEye has partnered with Detroit Cristo Rey High School on their very unique and innovative Corporate Work Study Program.
In this program BullsEye mentors four students who work on a one day per week work schedule.
This program is different from a standard internship program in that BullsEye will work with the high school and get well-trained, entry-level high school student workers while also giving back to the community.
Cristo Rey provides training to the students so they have a basic understanding of computers, software, office etiquette, etc. Through this program, BullsEye offers an environment to expose these students to real-world business applications, our industry, and life in a professional environment.
Mitch Album S.A.Y. Detroit Radiothon
BullsEye Telecom has provided telephone services for Mitch Albom’s S.A.Y. Detroit Radiothon since 2014.
S.A.Y. Detroit helps homeless families, students hoping to reach college, veterans who have hit hard times and others in need.
This year, the 9th annual Radiothon raised over $1.52 million dollars. Partially because of BullsEye’s support, the Radiothon was able to surpass the 2019 amount by $200,000.
BullsEye employees donated 130+ hours of their time to organize, set up equipment and answer phones for the event.
“This event brings pure joy to my heart to be a part of a company and event that does such great work for our own community. The other part of this that I love is the history and learning BullsEye has done as a company and team to succeed in executing a seamless and flawless call center with phone equipment having a 100% uptime throughout the 18-hour event.” – Alethea Niner, Manager of Service Implementation“
Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Club Radiothon
The Bed & Bread Club Radiothon aims to help raise funds and awareness for the Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread program that provides food to hungry residents of Detroit who are unable to make it to a soup kitchen, and overnight shelter for those residents who cannot sleep in beds of their own.
Our technology and great call center volunteers helped raise a record $1,734,364 for the event.
Detroit Dog Rescue
BullsEye Telecom partnered with Detroit Dog Rescue on the first ever 96.3 WDVD Donate for Dogs Radiothon.
Along with phone services, BullsEye employees donated over 80 hours of their time, helped raise $63,486 and some even submitted dog adoption applications during the event.
Detroit’s first and only no-kill shelter, Detroit Dog Rescue, focuses on raising awareness of the stray and homeless dog problem in Detroit.
The Detroit Dog Rescue provides shelter to 80-100 dogs at a time, rehabilitation through its foster program and a healthy pet population control through spay and neutering.
For the past four years, BullsEye has supported Salvation Army’s Adopt-A-Family and Salvation Army’s Angel Tree.
Last year, BullsEye provided 30 children with a Christmas through generous donations of money, clothes, and toys. BullsEye also adopted a local family of 6 and was able to bring them joy and happiness through the holiday season.
In addition, BullsEye has partnered with Mittens for Detroit for the fifth consecutive year. Our employees across the U.S. have donated mittens and gloves to help those in need during the holiday season.
