Community Involvement

At The Go Solution, we place a high value on giving back to the community, and we participate in this from top to bottom. In fact Community is one of our core values and an area of focus in everything we do. The company hosts periodic blood drives and donates time and money to a variety of charities, churches, and non-profit organizations (including ALS, Cancer charities, Toys for Tots, the Houston Food Bank, and many, many more).

We’ve been blessed as an organization, and feel that sharing those blessings with the community is vital. We encourage employees to participate in events and donate money, when they are able, and often top off the effort with company matching. We are proud to be part of the Houston community and encourage everyone to get involved or donate to local and national efforts.

We are so proud of our employees who embrace Community, one of our core values, and love to see The Go Solution active in local efforts. Here are just some of the ways The Go Solution has contributed to the community in the past year.

Raised funds for clothing and back to school necessities. “When the children arrive at the shelter with their family, they’re in a crisis situation, often experiencing trauma and uncertainty,” said Star of Hope President and CEO, Hank Rush. “As we all remember, the first day of school can be traumatic in its own right. We try to make their transitions as smooth as possible by providing them with everything they need to blend in with their classmates.“ To help TGS with this effort, one of our partners, Dish Network, donated 50 backpacks towards our “Fill a Backpack, Fill a Need” program to help insure children in the Star of Hope program have the best start to the New Year they can have.

Work. Play. Run.
In support of Firefighters Helping Firefighters, The Go Solution participated in the 2014 Rudolph 5k Fun Run. “Firefighters Helping Firefighters” is a group of firefighters who established a non-profit organization with the goal of financially assisting injured firefighters and the families who are burdened with issues and obstacles. This may include medical expenses, services needed while hospitalized (food, hotel, home maintenance), retrofitting of home for handicap accessibility, in-home care, living expenses, etc.

Our employees generously donated blood and platelets during a blood drive hosted onsite at the office, benefitting Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. Damon Diamantaras, our CEO, said “Our ability to rise up and adhere to our corporate value of Community says a lot about the people that work in this organization. We saved 78 lives with the donations, and that’s a true sense of giving back.”

Our employees walked and ran for Maddie’s Mission – CMV Awareness. The “Save a Baby Today” race was held in Katy, TX to help raise awareness about CMV and funds for CMV research. CMV is a common virus that is harmless to most, but can cause disability when passed to an unborn child. CMV is the most common congenital viral infection in the United States, according to the CDC.

I am sure you remember seeing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge all over the news and social media. Never one to shy away from a challenge, our CEO Damon Diamantaras challenged all employees to donate while he took the ice like a champ. After company matching, we donated $2,200.00 to ALS.
