At our core, we are people serving people and we have the privilege to partner with non-profit organizations who actively work towards that mission. We recognize the positive impact individual non-profits have on the well-being of our teammates, families, and communities. Yulista is committed to making significant contributions to our partnered organizations through volunteer hours, financial contributions, and targeted resources.
