One of Tuttle's goals is to foster an environment in which
becoming a successful philanthropist (and/or volunteer)
is as valued and desirable a goal as achieving success
in the staffing industry.
FRIDAY IS DENIM DAY
Every Friday, Tuttle employees have a choice: to wear jeans or not to wear jeans. By wearing jeans, each Tuttle employee pledges $5.00 to our charity of the month.
The following is an update of what we have accomplished most recently:
- July’s charity was The American Heart Association. AHA is an organization committed to fighting heart disease and raising awareness of this deadly disease. Our collection was in remembrance of John Solarino’s grandfather, Mario DeSantis. We collected $300. John matched for a total contribution of $600.
- August’s charity was for the St. Francis Prep High School’s Scholarship fund for FDNY Danny Pudjak. Danny, a classmate and friend of Jennifer Novak, lost his life in the line of fire as a member of the FDNY. We collected and sent them a check for $300 in support of the charity set up in his name.
- September’s charity was for the Delaware Youth Center. We contributed to this charity in memory of Tim Tobin’s grandmother, Vera Tobin. Mrs. Tobin helped start the youth center and volunteered there for many years. We collected our Friday jeans money and Tim matched. A check was sent to the center for $750.
- October’s charity was for the Actor’s Fund. The Actor’s fund is a non-profit, national human services organization that helps entertainment and performing arts professionals through a broad spectrum of social, health, and housing programs. A check for $750 was sent to this worthy organization.
- November’s charity will be NYC City Harvest.
To quote Martin Luther King Jr. “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”

Charities we are currently working with this month:
The Tuttle Agency is a contributor for Canstruction, a fundraising event benefiting City Harvest.
Canstruction® Competition Celebrates 15 Years of Fighting Hunger
New York, NY – Canstruction®, the most unique food charity in the world, celebrates its 15th Anniversary on November 8th when forty-five spectacular works of “canned art” created to benefit City Harvest go on display at the New York Design Center.
New York City architectural and engineering firms go head to head in this wacky but heart-felt competition, challenging one another to see who, in a single night, can build the most amazing sculpture made entirely out of full cans of food. At the close of the exhibition these fantastic works will be dismantled and the contents picked up by City Harvest for distribution to emergency feeding programs throughout the five boroughs.
Last year with forty-two structures in the show over 250,000 lbs. of food was donated to City Harvest. This year organizers hope to top that number by building structures containing even larger quantities of canned food. The public helps to boost the total amount of food contributed by donating a can(s) of food as the price of admission.
Making a difference. Changing the world. One Can. For more information see http://canstruction.com/

Events that Tuttle has participated in:
Thanksgiving Food Drive
New York Cares Day:
April 23, 2006 Tuttle will join thousands of New Yorkers in the MS Walk. A charity close to the hearts of many Tuttle’s whose family members struggle with this disease.
More than just a fundraising event, though, the MS Walk is a celebration for an entire community. The donations that pour in fund countless programs and services and research, but the event itself creates a hope-filled and fun atmosphere for everyone affected by MS while generating a greater awareness of multiple sclerosis in the public at large. Families are drawn closer together, co-workers are united for a greater good, and people gain a better understanding of what MS is and how close we are coming to eradicating it.
The day when we finally find the cure for multiple sclerosis is getting closer. This is why we walk.
In March 2006 Tuttle will participate in the Send One Suit Week. Dress for Success is sending an urgent S.O.S. to women nationwide: donate one new or nearly new interview suit during the week of March 6-12th and help a low-income woman enter the workforce.
A donation of just one suit can empower a woman struggling in a low-income situation to start a new life of self-sufficiency and success. S.O.S. - Send One Suit - Week coincides with Women’s History Month and features promotions to raise awareness and funds for Dress for Success affiliates in the U.S. and abroad.
