SAP makes a welcoming difference November 10, 2010

We offer a service called Corporate Projects, maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe not?  It’s where companies hire us to plan and coordinate a volunteer project for a group of their employees.  Sometimes there are huge groups of people, sometimes it’s a small team that wants to volunteer together.  No matter the size, we’re happy to help these groups out! 

It’s a win-win because our community partners get a dedicated group, usually during the day when we can’t normally recruit volunteers, and the employees get a few hours of quality time together making a positive difference in their community. 

See what I mean?  Win-win.

Our most recent Corporate Project was with a company called SAP (Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing) and they helped out Seattle Public Schools.  There are two elementary schools, Queen Anne and McDonald that are temporarily located at the Lincoln High School site this year. Since the students are in a new and unfamiliar building, we wanted to do something to make them feel welcome.  Enter SAP and their serious art skills.
