We’re a tight knit team here at WebEnertia. You may not know it, but we sit down and eat lunch together every day. (Well, not on the weekends. But Monday to Friday, everyone is at the table.) We’ve also always hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for our entire team, right here in the office. We eat, we drink, we give thanks, we go home and fall asleep, overstuffed and grateful. (Fat and happy.)
But this year we decided to do something different. We decided to forego our feast and instead gathered at the Second Harvest Food Bank to box and distribute food to local families in need. Our entire team showed up, and together we packaged and gave out Thanksgiving meals to over 150 families. Valod Amirkhanian, our co-founder and Director of Technology, says of the experience, “It was really incredible to help out our local community, and I’m so proud of our whole team for showing up and giving back.” We hope you all had a happy and fulfilling (and just plain filling) Thanksgiving.
