Our All For 1 Day was a HUGE success. As a company, we contributed over 1,400 hours to our 25,000+ Challenge. Today, we’re going to highlight some of the activities that went on during that Saturday in June, specifically from our call centers and corporate offices.
Our branch and call center teams in Irving, Texas participated in the Celebration of Hope through the Dallas Leadership Foundation. The team scraped and painted houses in a low income neighborhood in the surrounding Dallas area. Thanks to Alicia Scheffler for spearheading this effort.
The Cypress team, led by Renee Lee, participated in a beach Clean Up at Huntington Beach with the Surfrider Foundation.
The team in Manasquan used All For 1 Day as a prep day for their upcoming Fun Fair, an event to be held in August that will raise funds for the Providence House of Ocean County. The team, led by Lynn Kilfeather, collected collected truckloads of new and gently used items to be sold at our flea market with all proceeds going to Providence House.
Our Wichita Call Center folks spread the love around multiple organizations. The Running from Work employee organization helped out an organization called Ballet Wichita by volunteering at their 5k race. Thanks to Kael Travis for leading this initiative.
Other members of the Wichita team hosted a car wash and BBQ in the Center parking lot with proceeds benefiting the local chapter of the United Way. Thanks to a collective leadership team of Jelena Brezjanovic-Shogren, Crystal Hong, Tracy Gerety and Allen Fonken for making it a success!
Ryan Lewis and Brent Burke represented the Call Center at the Pro Kansas Miller Recycling Center, unloading vehicles and sorting the various recyclables.
And, our final highlighted group for today, was the Wichita Call Center group, led by Heather Gates, that volunteered through Head Start to clean up their playground, weed around the fence area and pick up the trash.
As you can tell, there were lots of different activities going on June 22nd and this is just a small sample!
