HiTouch Invests $10K in Urban League of Middle Tennessee for its 53rd Anniversary

·3 min read

HiTouch Business Services is investing $10,000 into The Urban League of Middle Tennessee as the historic civil rights organization celebrates its 53rd Anniversary. The office supply company's contribution will support all ULMT's programs, including initiatives that focus on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, career development, education and housing opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and economic empowerment for underserved communities.

"ULMT and HiTouch are aligned in our objectives to make work environments more diverse, inclusive, and equitable," said Deborah Huber, Vice President of Customer Experience at HiTouch. "Through this birthday gift, we commemorate Urban League's long-standing history of bridging the economic gap and finding solutions to racial disparities."

"I want to express my gratitude to HiTouch for their donation as we reach another milestone," said Clifton Harris, CEO of Urban League of Middle Tennessee. "Without the generosity of corporate donors, we could not offer programs such as Equity in Action, which provides the methodology for influential business decision-makers to partner with small business owners of color to increase procurement and their visibility."
