“It is the Vision of the USR Outreach Program to enrich the lives of others and improve our community on local, regional, and national levels. We are committed to partnering with various aid organizations, giving of our time and talents, and providing fundraising and donation opportunities."
April 1, 2010 marked the completion of our 22nd year in business. What better way to celebrate than to give back in a meaningful way on an on-going basis to our community and the charities our clients support.
As a company we actively participate in a variety of charitable activities:

The Matthews House was the recent recipient of 42 handmade pillowcases donated by US-Reports.
Each year the employees of US-Reports participate in a companywide Spirit Week to celebrate the founding and culture of the company. During Spirit Week a day is set aside to perform service for the community. This year the company participated in the 1 Million Pillow Case Challenge, a nationwide challenge to make and donate 1 million pillow cases. Tracey Ryssman, VP of Human Resources said “our employees look forward every year to joining together as a team and giving back in a meaningful way. Cutting, pinning, and sewing the pillowcases was one of our all time best service activities. Many of our male employees discovered a skill they didn’t know they had”.
The Matthews House provides life skills training and mentoring to high risk youth in our community. The staff at the Matthews house are starting a new project where they will be creating bins for teens who are moving into their first apartments. The bins will have sheets, toiletries, kitchen basics, and other apartment necessities. Each bin will also have a handmade pillowcase thanks to US-Reports.
In 2010 USR also gave back by donating $250,000 nationally to over twenty different nonprofit organizations.
