What is CSR?

From WikiPedia :

“The goal of CSR is to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere.”

To sum it up in more “fuzzy terms” – San Mateo Event Center is driven by our staff who likes to do good things for the community! and our management team supports the staff’s efforts – it creates a positive work environment and a strong sense of community.

Jeanavive Janssen, in the San Mateo Event Center sales department is an active volunteer at the Menlo Park VA with “Soldier’s Angels“, and through her involvement also in the Community Outreach committee of Meeting Professionals International local chapter members donated 150 toys for the “Toys for Vet’s” program at the Menlo Park, VA.

San Mateo Event Centers, Ast. General Manager – Dana Stoehr,  SUV loaded down with toys personally delivered them to the VA in Menlo Park on her break.  And, finally Jeanavive went back to the VA on her lunch break on December 20, 2011 –  where the veteran’s got to pick the toys they wanted to give to their children and Jeanavive wrapped them (she admits her wrapping skills; weren’t the best…but a few vets lent a finger while she tore the tape…). These vets are part of in-patient care at the VA and are unable to personally shop for toys or have limited incomes in order to purchase toys for their families.

  • Ingrid Nunez in the San Mateo Event Center accounting department, for the past 7-months with the Jubilee Homeless Outreach has gone to Coyote Creek in San Jose to bring homeless clean warm clothes, food, and hygiene supplies.  For Thanksgiving, she participated in stuffing bags with food for 1,000 families. Her son also, volunteered for a Christmas giveaway for those who lost their jobs or simply couldn’t afford anything for the holidays.   Each family got a toy per child or bike and gave them a bag of food…video:
