Giving That Gives Back

It's the most beautiful time of the year! The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends but also makes us want to help those less fortunate. This year, we're sharing our appreciation for our clients by giving them a gift that gives back. From spiced meatballs to sweet cinnamon bread, Salute Seasonings spice kits will add flavor to our clients' holiday meals. And not only will they enjoy delicious food this winter - proceeds from our Salute Seasonings spices gift benefit Warrior Salute Veteran Services, a free support program for local Veterans to help them transition back into civilian life.

Premium Spice for your Holiday Meals (Made with Love)

From blending to packaging, these gourmet spice blends are made locally in Rochester, NY, for ultimate freshness. They're handcrafted with whole spices and contain no additives, preservatives, or fillers. CDS Transitions, the parent company of Salute Seasonings, provides opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities and Veterans with PTSD. These individuals are part of the highly skilled workforce that helps create unique blends.

Shop Local, Support Local

Our Ardent team is spread across the U.S., but we call Rochester home–and supporting our local businesses is essential to our mission. CDS Life Transitions is owned and operated in Rochester and is known for uniquely blended flavors for restaurants and commercial operations across Monroe County. In turn, the revenue supports CDS Life Transitions' mission of providing individualized support to empower and support individuals with developmental disabilities, local seniors, veterans, and area families. The organization has supported these diverse populations for more than 40 years and continues to give back to the Rochester and Monroe County area. It's truly an organization with a serving heart.

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community. We encourage our clients and business friends to shop local this holiday season and support the business owners whose tenacious spirit keeps our economy thriving.

Merry Everything, Happy Always

On behalf of the instructional designers, marketing communications team, creative services, instructors, and leadership team at Ardent (and everyone in between who helps us serve our clients well), we wish you a happy holiday season. The last two years gave us a fair share of challenges, but we have hope for a successful, happy, healthy 2022. Thank you for being a part of our story.
