Raleigh, NC, November 20, 2018
Craig Scates, owner and partner of the Raleigh-based Resolvit office, believes in giving back to the community. While he manages his busy portion of the international technology consulting firm, Craig and his wife also manage their son living with Cerebral Palsy.
For 13 years, Craig has been a supporter of Easterseals UCP because of programs for children and adults with varying special needs, disabilities and mental health challenges. His 19-year-old son, Travis, is one of three triplet boys. Craig and his wife, Susan, along with their other sons, Tommy and JJ, have been supporting Travis through therapies and education. Travis never let his neurological disorder get in the way of his dreams. Last year, Travis graduated from a vocational high school with hopes of finding a job soon.
“Years ago, I didn’t understand life challenges of people with Cerebral Palsy, but now I know first-hand,” said Craig. Their family is entering a new phase of their lives by seeking support in adult transitioning. Easterseals UCP offers a program called Individual Community and Services to provide daily living skills, job training and support to live independently.
Throughout the year, Resolvit is committed to giving back to the community through a number of events including the Resolvit Golf Tournament which benefits Easterseals UCP. Craig said, “Giving back to the community is in our DNA and the core values of our company.” This tournament allows employees to show client appreciation, meet new friends, and give back to a worthy cause. Easterseals UCP is grateful for the company’s support. A big shout out to Resolvit for raising about $1,500.
As we begin the spirit of giving this season, reflect on the commitment of Craig and the employees at Resolvit, who have set the bar high to support their community around them. Consider supporting Easterseals UCP on Giving Tuesday, November 27. Donate online.
