In 2014, CoreMedical Group participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge, donated to the Granite State Children's Alliance, and supported the American Red Cross, through donations, participating in a blood drive, and taking first aid/CPR training. Employees also had a range of charities to support during the first quarter, including NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and New Hampshire Food Bank.
Quarter 1 - January 2014
Option 1: New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence
Mission: The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence creates safe and just communities through advocacy, prevention and empowerment of anyone affected by sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking. This mission is accomplished by the Coalition, which includes 14 independent community-based member programs, a Board of Directors and a central staff working together to:
- Influence public policy on the local, state and national levels;
- Ensure that quality services are provided to victims;
- Promote the accountability of societal systems and communities for their responses to sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking;
- Prevent violence and abuse before they occur.
Option 2: JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF's goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
Option 3: New Hampshire Food Bank
The mission of the New Hampshire Food Bank is to feed hungry people by soliciting and effectively distributing grocery products, perishable foods, and services through a statewide network of approved agencies; by advocating for systemic change; and by educating the public about the nature of, and solutions to, problems of hunger in New Hampshire.

Granite State Children's Alliance
Quarter 2 - March 2014
Mission: GSCA's mission is to provide all victims of child abuse in New Hampshire a neutral environment where justice, healing, equity and prevention are fostered through the consistent, high quality and sustaining collaboration of community partners.
They believe ending abuse requires justice and healing for child victims and their families.
They believe a coordinated multidisciplinary approach is the best way to serve these needs.
They will create and maintain neutral, child friendly Child Advocacy Centers where interviews and services for child victims can be provided.
They will coordinate multidisciplinary teams for the child's benefit, from investigation to trial and beyond.
They will connect child victims and their families with needed community resources.
They believe the sexual abuse of children is a silent epidemic, made worse by the social stigma which keeps it out of public view.
They will speak openly about sexual abuse and will educate communities across New Hampshire about the depths of the problem and how to prevent it.
