It’s already been a full and busy year for Eversight for Good! From coast to coast, we’ve been partnering with fantastic organizations to engage our local communities.
Employees in Grand Rapids, MI volunteered through United Way with Operation United, a program focused on providing community resources to local veterans. The team cleaned up the property of a local veteran’s new home, filling two industrial size dumpsters with debris. They removed heavy beams, sheet metal, tree trunks, roofing tiles, mattresses, and more!
The New York office volunteered at the Community Kitchen of West Harlem, a full service soup kitchen and food pantry that provides free meals to New Yorkers. The team prepped meals for over 100 local seniors, including the largest peach cobbler they’d ever seen. This was Eversight for Good’s fourth collaboration with the Community Kitchen! We’ve enjoyed forming connections with their staff and community members over the years, and look forward to continuing on together in 2020.
The Chicago-based team already has two events under their belt for the year! In early May, the office hosted local high school students for a day through Junior Achievement of Chicago. Students were given an office tour, overviews of different departments and career paths, and a forum to ask questions to a panel. Two weeks later, the team made their way to the Garfield Park Conservatory, a 2 acre nature conservatory in downtown Chicago. The team tore out old ground cover, planted new foliage, removed old soil, and filled the garden with new mulch, all while navigating wheelbarrows through a sea of excited student visitors.
The rest of 2019 is filling up quickly for Eversight for Good! In mid-July the Palo Alto office will be volunteering at Our Daily Bread, preparing and serving meals to community members in need. In the Fall, they’ll follow up by hosting a Junior Achievement office visit for local NorCal students. During the Holiday season, employees across the country will participate in making handmade cards for Cards for Hospitalized Kids, which will be distributed to Ronald McDonald houses throughout the United States.
