Giving Tuesday

NEW YORK, (December 1, 2020) –  Shelley Tanner, SanovaWorks CEO/President

As we begin to close the year that was 2020 out, I have so much gratitude and admiration for Team Sanova. The work they do every day at their jobs is the highest quality and gets results for our clients. Through a pandemic, home-schooling, personal and familial health challenges, increased workload transitioning our events to virtual meetings, for the health and safety of all–Team Sanova has risen to the occasion and is an example and role model for other work families. I am truly humbled to lead this group of exceptional people.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, I would like to kick-off SanovaWorks’ Giving Month initiatives.

SanovaWorks Giving Tuesday and Beyond Initiatives

The end of the year and the holiday season is a great time to give and share your good fortune with those in need.  Supporting individuals and families not only helps them, but it is a gift to us to do something positive and to spread good cheer.  

Donate TOYS, BOOKS & COATS this Holiday Season

This year we will donate toys, books, and coats to the Morris Heights Health Center which is a tremendous organization located in the Bronx that provides free and low-cost health care and an array of other services.  MHHC is close to our hearts; we have worked with them for the past 12 years, and several of the Team have volunteered there, including Luciana Nofal who used to coordinate their Reach Out and Read program as an AmeriCorps VISTA.  With the pandemic, their services are more important now than ever before.

MHHC reports that they are still sharing warmth to their pediatric patients this year, and that they’re being very strategic and safe in the way they distribute donations. She expressed that they would be grateful for anything we can give – but especially for children under 5 years old. Tragically MHHC has seen an increase in patients who are living in shelters this season, so every little bit helps!

Giving Tuesday Donation to Hope for New York, His Toy Store Reimagined

Again this year SanovaWorks also made a donation to the following organization, which provides NYC families in deep financial need with basic needs and toys during the Christmas season: Hope for New York. Their goal is to fundraise $155,000 to be distributed to 42,000 families in need. 

Invitation to Participate in the Gift Exchange 

Team Sanova is a work-family so we always give our team the opportunity to join a group gift exchange. We will do it virtually this year, instead of at our holiday gathering. If you want to spread a little cheer and camaraderie with your colleagues, it’s a great way to express yourself through a thoughtful gift. 

With gratitude,


Shelley Tanner, President / CEO, SanovaWorks
