With the Memorial Day holiday weekend past us, I am very happy to report that last week Protiviti NY personnel packed 61 boxes which were then sent for distribution c/o six of our military members serving overseas. Three of the six service members were actually contacts from our own Protiviti family. Thanks to your generous donations, all of the troops selected will be receiving at least two care packages each.
The response to this event was very gratifying – from the continued support of those who have participated in years past to our new hires who gladly pitched in- in their first week here! The Community Service Team would like to thank everyone for their generosity in making this event a success — everyone who donated cash or items the troops requested, our planning team, our purchasing team, our packing teams, our shipping teams, and those who took a few minutes to write postcards that mean so much to our troops.
If you did not participate in this event, it is never too late to help our troops. The following are some websites that offer different options:Read our troops’ stories, select a soldier here, request the address and mail him or her a card:
