Helping others is a great way to build camaraderie with your colleagues. Pulling together for a good cause brings the office closer. Our Perficient Atlanta office recently did just that for the Adopt-a-Soldier program. This isn’t the first time the office has participated in this program, and it definitely will not be the last time. The Adopt-a-Soldier program involves donating requested items to U.S. troops deployed overseas.
How We Contributed to the Adopt-a-Soldier Program
For one month, colleagues from around the office donated items that the soldiers requested in hopes to fill as many of these boxes as possible.
We were able to fill almost every box to the brim! Our team was able to pool together lots of items varying from food snacks and hygiene items to entertainment such as books. At our last All-Hands meeting, we held a packing party to pack what we were sending to the deployed troops.
Team Building at Its Finest
After our packing party, we took the packages over to the post office for delivery. I am proud of the sheer volume of items we were able to send. Our soldiers deployed around the world sacrifice so much for the safety of our country. It was great to come together with my team to help bring a piece of home to them. We plan on doing this event again in the near future.
