“When corporations are truly socially responsible, as is the case with Spear Education, they do more than just write a check. They align their values with organizations that work to improve the community in which they work and live. Financial support, creating employee awareness and partnering with us on volunteer projects are all ways in which Spear exemplifies social responsibility in the greater Phoenix area and helps Esperança improve the health outcomes of the families we serve.”
