How Exactly Do We Give Back?

In 2016 we established our CEI Serves program (#CEIServes) in order to allow our team to dedicate working hours to non-profits that they were passionate about. With the establishment of this program, CEI dedicates at minimum (1) volunteer day a quarter to local area non-profits. Our team loves to go out into our community and give back to those organizations that are supporting the Triangle in so many positive ways. To further our CEI Serves program even more, we started our annual holiday fundraiser, “Wrap it in Red.” Wrap it in Red is a yearly fundraising event where CEI sponsors (2) deserving non-profit groups. The event is fully financed by CEI, and all profits raised by the groups go directly to their organization. Typically, we have over 500 people in attendance, and we hope to continue to grow this event as the years go on. For more information, contact wrapitinred@copycei.com.
