Chicago, IL, October 10, 2017 – Higher Purpose Gifts (www.higherpurposegifts.com) is a company committed to taking the gifting experience to the next level by providing premium gourmet gift sets, employing people dealing with the challenge of a disability, and donating a portion of net profit to worthy causes. The company is excited to announce its launch on September 30, 2017 and the hiring of its first gift set specialists. Higher Purpose Gifts has designed a truly inclusive work environment where members of the team can leverage their unique skills and abilities to work at market rate performance and pay standards while having fun.
“While sourcing, packaging, and delivering unique gift sets our customers will love, we also help our employees experience the dignity of work as well as purpose beyond a paycheck while gaining independence and stability,” says Melody Steffen, CEO of Higher Purpose Gifts. As part of the launch, Higher Purpose Gifts hired 13 employees, who are either currently enrolled in or have graduated from the Notre Dame College Prep’s Burke Scholar Program, an inclusive education experience designed to help folks dealing with the challenge of a disability advance their education in a supportive values-based learning environment.
Prior to the launch, Higher Purpose Gifts has been actively involved in the community to support local initiatives and raise awareness about their business and the employability of people with cognitive and physical disabilities. More recently, the Higher Purpose Gifts team was able to share its products with the community and help to sponsor the annual Regina Dominican High School Athletic Program Golf Outing on September 29, 2017. The event brought the community and employees together for an enjoyable day.
“Higher Purpose Gifts thrives on building healthy relationships and we love to interact with our customers,” says Steffen. “It’s been so rewarding to see the joy that the Higher Purpose Gifts team members and the customers gain from the interactions thus far.”
Currently, Higher Purpose Gifts specializes in creating delicious salsa and Italian-themed baskets, but has big plans to provide spa sets, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sets, a BBQ set, and a back-to-school college care package. Sourcing items from California, upstate New York, Italy, and upstate Michigan, customers get authentic, high-quality gifts to enjoy. Higher Purpose Gifts is unlike other gift set services as it donates a portion of the net profit generated to worthy causes chosen by employees and voted on by customers at checkout.
Higher Purpose Gifts are available on the web at www.higherpurposegifts.com and also in bulk quantity for corporate gifting. For more information about the company, please visit the site or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
