Here at S-Docs, we enjoy working with our diverse group of customers around the globe--but we also love getting involved at home and serving our local communities. As part of our commitment to Pledge 1%, our Ann Arbor team headed down the block last week to volunteer at the Robert J. Delonis Center, a shelter operated by the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County (SAWC), whose mission is to end homelessness in Washtenaw County. The SAWC provides resources to people experiencing homelessness, including food, temporary housing, access to showers and phones, and tools for finding income and affordable housing.
Our team volunteered in the Community Kitchen, where we helped prep food for the next day and wash the dishes of the 100+ people who received a meal that night. The kitchen is operated by Food Gatherers, a not-for-profit organization that relies on 1,600 volunteers annually to help prepare and serve meals 364 days a year to anyone in need. Dedicating the evening to helping those in need was an incredibly rewarding experience for our team, and we were glad to contribute to making a positive difference in our community.
“One of the many wonderful things I learned from my years at Salesforce was how business can make a positive impact in every community. I’m very proud that we’ve continued that tradition at S-Docs,” said Dan Pejanovic, CEO of S-Docs.
We’re already looking forward to our next trip to the Delonis Center, which will be centered around our intern program. Volunteering isn’t the only way we get involved, though; our Ann Arbor team recently participated in the city’s Commuter Challenge, which challenges individuals to use greener methods of transportation. We’re proud to say that we reached 100% participation! Taking an active role in the community is both rewarding and beneficial, which is why we value it so highly at S-Docs.
