As we reflect on the past 25 years of our success, we realize that the same spirit that drives us to exceed business expectations moves us to give back to those less fortunate. We have had the privilege of donating millions of dollars in community grants and supporting hundreds of nonprofit charitable organizations. We’ve given our products to improve lives, from local schools in underserved communities to rural African villages. And, we’ve given something even more precious – our time. Employees around the world have stepped up to make a difference and to make everyday life a little bit better for our neighbors. Tens of thousands of employee volunteer hours have been used in community stewardship, helping people and communities around the world work better and live better.

As good corporate citizens, customers, employees, business partners, and investors have higher expectations of the role business can play in helping to solve social problems. Here’s your chance to get involved and do something different, fun and meaningful. We invite you to roll up your sleeves and open your hearts to those less fortunate.

How?

Join us for Simply Serve @ Synergy on Monday afternoon, May 5, from 3 pm to 5 pm for on site volunteer activity supporting Stop Hunger Now, a global humanitarian aid organization.  Meet us in  the Marriott Hotel, Platinum Ballrooms 1-3, to assemble highly nutritious meals for children and families in need. In honor of our 25th anniversary, help us meet our goal of packaging 25,000 meals to alleviate hunger and end the cycle of poverty for the world’s most vulnerable.

Want to see how much fun it is? Check out our team photo from another Simply Serve event.

Sign up through your personal agenda. Once registered for Synergy through the My Event Account tool, search the Session Catalog for SYN010: Simply Serve @ Synergy  and add the activity to your schedule to confirm your participation.

As a special bonus, those who participate in the meal packaging event will be entered into a drawing to receive a one of a kind piece of art created by disabled artists from the Ann Storck Center. The winners will be announced on the last day of Synergy at the Social Media Hub.
