Supporting our local San Diego community is a pillar of our growing company and our employees are proud to donate their time and resources to help those in need. We understand that these efforts can make a real difference in people’s lives and we enthusiastically carve out time to do our part.
Every month, our team volunteers at Serving Seniors, a leading provider of programs and services for low-income seniors in San Diego County. Together, we serve lunch, clean up and chat with needy seniors. It’s a great opportunity for employees from all functions, especially our millennials, to engage with a diverse population of older adults who can’t always afford to buy a healthy meal.
Last month, under the leadership of our new office assistant Siobhan Murphy and people operations leader Brett Pugliesi, we expanded our community support by holding two, new charity drives. First, we, we collected needed toiletries for Christie’s Place, a non-profit social service organization in San Diego that provides HIV/AIDS education, support, and advocacy. Thanks to the generosity of our team, we were able to provide the appreciative clients of Christie’s Place with a large collection of tooth brushes, soap, shampoo, lotion, tooth paste, and other essential items that most of us don’t even think twice about needing.
Then, we held a clothing drive for the Disabled American Veteran Thrift Stores. DAV provides relief and assistance to disabled American veterans or their dependents. With San Diego being a proud home to thousands of service members, veterans, and their families, it was a natural fit for us to help. It was very rewarding to see the bags, and bags…and bags of clothing going to DAV.
This is a great start to 2017 and we look forward to continuing to support the San Diego community as well as the other cities around the country where we are expanding.
