In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Tripwire’s Community Involvement Team hosted multiple volunteer activities centered around a food theme for the month of November to encourage employees to take advantage of the one volunteer day off per month benefit Tripwire offers its employees.
It provided Tripwire employees with the opportunity to get to know fellow co-workers from other departments while making an impact to our local communities.
Our first event was at the Blanchet House where we plated and served lunch to those in need. Ten employees gave up a few hours during lunch to help serve 363 people for lunch. AND Tripwire paired this volunteer activity with a $2,500 donation to the Blanchet House!
The group had a great time and hopes to make this a regular monthly volunteer activity.
We also hosted 2 events at the Oregon Food Bank later in the month.
Fifteen Tripwire employees along with 6 spouses and kids donated their time to packaging food that will be delivered out to the regional food pantries in Oregon.
Tripwire made a donation of $5,000 to the Oregon Food Bank to assist in purchasing some of the food we helped to package as well as to support their efforts in ending hunger and its root causes.
Leslie Stratton (Sales) and Emily Ulrich (Finance) repacking in OFB’s Beaverton location assisted in producing 3,740 meals for the hungry in Oregon.
Stacie Otto (Finance), Kate Carson (Marketing), and Rony Lerner (R&D) repacking beans in OFB’s Portland location.
Over 75 volunteer hours were donated to support these local charities as a result of these 3 volunteer activities. Thank you Tripwire for giving us the opportunity to take time during work hours to make a difference in our communities!
