'Tis the season for giving and as the cold weather arrives that’s exactly what some 50 Verizon employees in Massachusetts did by volunteering to assemble "winter warmth packages" at a local charity that offers clothing and other items for children.
The Product Strategy and Product Development employees who work at the Verizon Innovation Center in Waltham, Massachusetts, spent a day last week sorting, inspecting, and packaging new and like-new items including winter clothing, shoes, coats, and accessories in Boston atCradles to Crayons, a Massachusetts non-profit organization that assists homeless children and their families who are gearing up for winter.
Among the team members was Stuart Elby, Verizon’s chief technology officer. "We all feel responsible to give back to our community," said Elby. "Many of us have donated clothing to various organizations, but volunteering at Cradles to Crayons let us experience what happens behind the scenes to get donated clothing and other items into the hands of less fortunate children. It was incredibly rewarding to work shoulder-to-shoulder with my co-workers in helping provide this service."
