Wasserman Media Group
35 volunteers from Wasserman Media group met at PAVE SE Raleigh Charter School to assemble a new swing set and playground equipment, organize the school library, assemble a vegetable garden, rehabilitate the soccer field, assemble and paint benches and picnic tables, and created blacktop games.
“From helping to identify worthy organizations in the greater Raleigh area to managing all communications with the school, overseeing all of the logistics, purchasing the materials, and organizing our team to make sure we maximize our efforts and produce the greatest good for the school – – Activate Good does it all!”
-Mary Reiling Spencer, Vice President, Wasserman Media Group
Merz North America
49 Volunteers from MERZ R&D spent their day of service at Haven House Services. These hardworking volunteers help to beautify the building inside and out by painting a “peace” mural, weeding and mulching the flower beds, cleaning spaces inside and out, creating a peaceful meditation room, and making healthy snack kits for teens in crisis.
“Activate Good was extremely reliable, affordable and very well organized to keep all 49 of our volunteers busy for over two hours on a very hot and humid day. We worked inside and outside and were very pleased to leave the venue a much cleaner, fresher, and more welcoming place to go!”
-Sandra Korbel, R&D Operations Coordinator, Merz North America
Did you know your team can volunteer without ever stepping foot outside your office, or that you can incorporate volunteering into an upcoming conference without leaving the venue? Check out some of the projects we’ve coordinated below. We’ve worked with groups of all sizes!
If your team is small (50 volunteers or less) and your budget is tighter, complete this RFP and ask us about At Will Portable Projects! The service fee is nominal and used to cover staff time for pre-project prep only, and we can offer a supply budget scaled to a certain goal rather than to fill a certain window of time. We don’t provide volunteer management for this option, but we still handle all the preliminary scoping and coordination, as well as supply purchasing and preparation for you. So a fully prepared portable project is delivered to your door!
We want doing good to be accessible to groups and companies of all sizes. See our FAQs for more info.
170 Cisco employees worked together to assemble 1400 weekend meal kits, complete with personalized notes, for students in need at Poe Elementary in Raleigh. Poe Elementary receives requests for meal assistance from an average of 170 students per week and these meal kits assured that the school will be able to fill all of these requests for approximately 2 and a half months.
“My team is small (relative to recent Cisco events) but mighty! I have heard NOTHING but great feedback for last week’s event. I had people in San Jose who were not even involved in our larger event tell me they heard great things about what we did! All of that was possible because of you and your team!”
-Anjie Williams, Executive Assistant, Cisco
To kick of Genworth’s 2017 Month of Service, 55 volunteers dropped by in between meetings and phone calls, on their way to lunch, and whenever they had a free moment to paint. These volunteers created 15 beautiful, unique paintings which were donated to Art for Hospice. Art for Hospice provides artwork to patients at over a dozen Hospice centers, VA hospitals, and nursing homes.
“Beyond the cheerful smiles, encouragement, and enthusiasm the Activate Good team brought to our event, they also covered the logistics to the point where I felt I didn’t even need to be there to oversee the event (though I would never have missed out on the fun).”
-Amy Rein, Internal Communications Leader — U.S. Mortgage Insurance, Genworth Financial
Chiesi USA volunteers helped welcome students back to school by giving just 90 minutes of their time to build 550 school supply kits. These kits were filled with notebooks, paints, markers, earbuds, index cards, and more items to help set students up for success. Kits were then distributed to Bugg Elementary where over 75% of students receive free or reduced price lunch.
“Our volunteer event increased our involvement and awareness in the community because Activate Good provided a facebook live video of our efforts. They were able to capture the real authentic reaction from the teachers and staff at the local school when they were gifted back to school items.”
-Catherine Marchetta, Marketing Coordinator, Chiesi USA
Nearly 300 volunteers from United Therapeutics created a fully furnished “Home for the Holidays” apartment makeover for 10 families transitioning out of homelessness–providing everything from pots and pans and groceries to beds, sheets, dressers, and couches. Everything was customized from within the United Therapeutics offices!
“We were able to interact with our team members, as well as people we’ve never worked with, so it’s an opportunity to bond as a company, while also doing a really great thing for the local community.”
-Kevin Laliberte, Senior Vice President of Product Development, United Therapeutics
