On Friday, October 11, our team stepped away from the office to spend our quarterly service day at Project C.U.R.E. moving and organizing life-saving medical equipment for hospitals and clinics in need around the world.
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies,
On average, Project C.U.R.E. delivers three to five semi-truck sized containers packed with the medical equipment and supplies each week. Along with that, hundreds of healthcare professionals travel with Project C.U.R.E to treat and train communities in need. They are dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and Ebola as well as assisting in natural disasters and societal crises.
Our team put our fierce organizational skills to use in order to help sort and organize Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouse. Between brand strategists sorting donated medical supplies, developers transporting wheelchairs and designers moving pallets of equipment — our entire team helped Project C.U.R.E. prepare to efficiently ship equipment overseas.
"It's truly rewarding to help a force-multiplying organization like Project C.U.R.E," said Digital Marketing Intern, Michael Pyndus. "The day was a great opportunity for our team to pitch in at a difference-making organization in our backyard."
By the time the day was done, our team packaged $25,000 worth of medical aid. We were proud to help out at Project C.U.R.E. and we look forward to helping them impact even more international communities in the future.
At the end of the day, we celebrated our quarterly Big Head Award, recognizing employees who have exceptionally modeled our five core values: Do the Right Thing, Act With Heart, Step Up and Own It, Teach and Lead, and Have Grit. This quarter our winner was Cynthia Stipeche!
