The Lifeworks Annual Celebration, initiated in 1986, is a very special evening that honors the recipients of the Lifeworks Annual Awards by bringing together individuals served by Lifeworks, our donors, business partners, employers, vendors, volunteers and advocates, and various members of the community who help the people we support live full and meaningful lives.

Each year Atomic Data employees open their hearts and their cupboards to support those in need.  For this year's Biggest Giver Food Drive Challenge, Atomic Data staff were asked to bring in food and other non-perishable items that would benefit the users of The Camden Promise Food Shelf.  Thanks to generous employees and a 100% match provided by CEO Jim Wolford, we were able to donate over 300 pounds of goods to the food shelf.  

This January some of the Atomic Data Team put down our keyboards and mice and picked up hammers, putty knives, drills, and paint brushes for a very good cause--Habitat for Humanity. We worked to restore an old home that will soon be provided to a family in need. For more information about donating or volunteering, visit the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity home page.

It’s a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet it happens every day that people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook — and, often, without the support network to help.

That’s where Open Arms comes in. Open Arms is the only nonprofit organization in Minnesota that cooks and delivers free meals specifically tailored to meet the nutrition needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, MS, ALS, breast cancer and more than 60 other diseases. They also work with communities in sub-Saharan Africa, providing food and technical assistance for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

By facilitating conversations to achieve policy solutions for environmental and economic progress, the Environmental Initiative is able to bring together leaders from business, nonprofits and government to work in partnership. They have been responsible for helping create the Clean Water Legacy Act, developing a plan to reduce carbon dioxide, and have identified and overcome barriers and strategies in order for Minnesota to meet mandated energy efficiency savings goals. As a part of the Give to the Max Day, Environmental Initiative was one of many nonprofits Atomic Data matched employee donations, making the gift four times its original size.

The Children's Hospitals of Minnesota does more than just help treat illnesses in children, it helps the families of patients. With the best care and facilities, Children's can provide kids and families with health and hope. Atomic Data supports the Children's of Minnesota and all that they do. Our sponsorship of the Great Clips Charity Golf Tournament went to the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
