Interested companies can complete a short nomination form by January 31st, 2019 on the HackingKindness site and tell Acumium why they (or someone else) deserve to win. A panel of Acumium employees will select and announce a winner by March 1st and begin planning in spring of 2019 for a hackathon style event. Employees will work with the winning company around key goals and needs, make a plan and implement the solution, all in just a few short days.

"We are so lucky to be surrounded by such caring and dedicated people in this community that are doing incredible work to change people's lives," says Dan Costello, CEO and Founder. "We see it every day. And we've been fortunate enough to work with a lot of those companies. But we want to do more. This concept allows us to take the same idea of giving back that we've lived day in and day out for over 17 years, and amplify it."

As a company, a few of Acumium's other acts of social good include stuffing backpacks for kids at the start of the school year, donating non-perishable food around the holidays, and collecting coats for donation as the weather gets colder. This year Acumium is also adopting a family through the YWCA, and volunteering with the Empty Stocking Club.
