One of Welcome's core values is "Follow the Golden Rule," and it's something we live and breathe every single day within the company. But we wanted to extend that to the community, as well. To do that, we formally implemented a volunteer program where each office takes the day off every quarter to help out the community or a local charity.
On February 3rd, Welcome had our first company wide volunteer day! We had employees in London, NYC, Chicago, San Fran, Sacramento, and Austin volunteering for local charities.
In Austin, we worked with "Meals on Wheels" and were able to deliver meals to 50+ people in need.
Our NYC office helped sort food at a local pantry and assisted people "shopping" in the pantry.
Selina had a great time in London, sorting clothes and trying on a donated Santa Beard at Ealing Soup Kitchen.
Alicia sorted food at the Placer County Food Bank in Roseville, California.
We can't wait for our next volunteer day, and have committed to making this happen every quarter going forward!
