The month of May is always a busy time of the year with the holiday weekend, graduations, weddings, the end of the school year and start of the summer. Because of this, the Fortiviti team decided to choose our give back to this month. Here’s how a few of our team members supported a cause they are passionate about.
“I have many family members who served in the armed forces, so I am passionate about supporting our veterans. For Memorial Day, I donated to Honor Flights Network in memory of both of my grandfathers who served in WWII. At one time, my grandfather on my father’s side planned to take an Honor Flight, but it didn’t work out. I donated to the network so another Veteran would have the opportunity to take an honor flight to visit the memorials dedicated them and their friends.” – Erin, Controller
“As a sales representative for Thirty-One Gifts, I donated 100% of my sales to The Maguire Davis Gilner Foundation – which was started by a close friend. Their annual Angel Day 5K honors all babies who have passed into Heaven too soon, and to help grieving parents cover the outstanding cost of purchasing a headstone to remember their babies.” – Lisa, Accounting Manager
“I ran the Tower 2 Tower 5K to support Water For People – an international non-profit with the mission of bringing safe drinking water and sanitation services to impoverished countries. The 5K is an annual race hosted by WaterOne, and my my mom, aunts, uncles, cousins and cousins sign up as a team every year. We love supporting a great cause and getting a good workout together!” – Stacey, Marketing Manger
“I provided clogging entertainment to the residents at the local nursing home. I have been clogging for over 25 years, and I love sharing my talents with others, whether it’s teaching or performing!” – Casie, Controller
“I participated in the Top Gun Kansas City Golf Tournament. We raised $9,000 for The Joshua Center Camp for Kids Program. All of the money donated by the participants was matched to double our gift! The Joshua Center is a non-profit organization that provides services and support for the social, emotional, and educational needs of neurologically impaired children and their families.” – Danee, Sales Manager
