“We understand that today’s economic climate is tough for a lot of people and realize we are very fortunate,” Howard Goldstein, VP of marketing, BlackLine Systems, said. “We’ve made it a company policy to give back to the community by working with organizations like GLIDE, Habitat for Humanity, Fishes & Loaves and Toys for Tots, which continuously and tirelessly help so many people in so many ways.”
BlackLine has helped in its local Los Angeles community through sponsorship of concerts in the park, benefits with the local Toys for Tots and Loaves & Fishes organizations and other community-building events. During the company’s Annual User Conference 2010 in New Orleans and again in Las Vegas in 2011, BlackLine had the privilege of working with the esteemed organization Habitat for Humanity to help build affordable housing in well-deserving neighborhoods in those communities.
