Last Friday, Protiviti interns participated in the U.S. Intern Day of Service. A total of 38,587.5 hours were volunteered that day, and the Houston office’s 31 participants contributed 46.5 hours.
The service event opened with a speech by Robert Darigo, an army veteran. Robert has served in locations all over the world and is currently one of our fellow Houston interns at Protiviti this summer. He provided insight into the many challenges associated with military life and made suggestions on what we could contribute during the U.S. Intern Day of Service to help boost morale.
During the event, we put together care packages and wrote cards thanking the brave troops in our adopted battalion, the 82nd Airborne Division, Battalion: 127th Engineers, Bravo Company, for their service. It was an extremely rewarding experience to give back to the soldiers who serve our country and we hope they know how much their service is appreciated.
