As I look at this conference room full of backpacks, I’m at a loss for words about the extreme generosity of my co-workers over the last month. The words, "thank you," seem inadequate.
In June, I proposed signing up for Volunteers of America’s Operation Operation Backpack. The goal? To donate 50 filled backpacks for at-risk children. Escape Technology has less than 40 employees and I worried that I was asking a bit much. Silly me! Of course Escapees pulled out all the stops and not only met but surpassed the goal.
I am incredibly touched by the willingness to give that I witness on a regular basis by my Escape family. It’s a privilege to work with people who continually go above and beyond to help others. Together we are sending 59 children back to school with brand new backpacks filled with the supplies they’ll need.
