A Partner With Our CommunityCommon Sense is Focused on Helping Local Non Profits
Common Sense Business Solutions is committed to playing a positive role in our local community. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by donating a commercial business multifunction copy system each quarter to a local non-profit organization. Every non-profit organization is tasked with using their limited budgets and resources to serve their base causes and therefore they rely on charitable donations of many necessary materials and services in order to help support their purpose. In 2015 Common Sense Business Solutions donated equipment to each of the following non-profit organizations to help facilitate their administrative printing, copying and scanning needs and to print the outreach materials critical to sharing their message with the public. Common Sense Business Solutions is proud to help the following non-profit organizations;
Law Enforcement Chaplaincy in Sonoma County;
Law Enforcement Chaplaincy in Sonoma County lists their mission as follows; Our mission is to respond to requests from law enforcement and provide immediate emotional support and follow up care to them and to the members of our community who have suffered tragedy and loss. We are an interfaith community of compassionate volunteers without religious, political, or legal agendas.
Officers, Deputies, Firefighters, and Emergency Services see a lot of pain every day. It’s a non-stop world of emergencies, sudden deaths, crimes, accidents and disasters. It is the job of law enforcement to run toward the danger when others are running away. In the normal course of work, law enforcement encounters citizens who are injured, shocked, bereft, and disoriented. This is where the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy of Sonoma County comes in. We train and deploy over 70 volunteer chaplains who are on the streets, day and night, providing emotional support to those who serve.
