Among the many things a global pandemic has interfered with, volunteerism and non-profit work took a significant hit in the past year. As discussed in a previous blog, Automox did a number of fundraisers over that time, and we were excited to get some group volunteer projects together as part of Automox #Giving. However, as we regrouped over the summer to plan our next quarterly Giving Friday, a spike in COVID-19 cases caused us to pause large group activities. It did not, however, hinder the passion and enthusiasm of this team to give back!
We chose to focus on food insecurity again this quarter, as it remains a major issue. The #Giving committee felt that putting it in the spotlight outside of the year-end drives was important, and as families sent their kids back to school it became an even bigger focus. Instead of organizing large events, we tried to connect Automoxers with resources for local services they could support – and as usual, encourage everyone to take some time on Giving Friday to step out from behind their desk and help out. They certainly did!
