Our Waltham Lab Employees: A Giving Team


'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 at Cradles 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."

Verizon Teams Up with New England Patriots to Promote Health and Wellness for Children


New England Patriots players teamed up with Verizon to visit students at the Elm Street School in Walpole, Mass to promote health and wellness as part of the NFL Play 60 challenge. Verizon executive Allison Cole was joined by Patriots players Matthew Slater, Danny Amendola, Ryan Allen, Ryan Mallett, Devin McCourty, and Duron Harmon, and Patriots Charitable Foundation Director of Community Affairs Andre Tippett. Patriots Chairman Robert Kraft also participated in the event.

The NFL Play 60 event was one of several sponsored by Verizon in partnership with the NFL. Similar events were held at NFL Play 60 Super Schools in Baltimore, New York, and Washington, D.C. The events, designed to help address childhood obesity, encourage youths to stay healthy by staying in school, eating right, and getting at least 60 minutes of exercise each day. Verizon and the Patriots presented a $10,000 youth health and wellness grant to the school. The schools were chosen based on wellness essays submitted by students. Some 3,200 schools registered for this year’s program, now in its fourth year. Click here for a photo gallery of the event.
