After the pounds of turkey, extra helpings of pie and the food comas have subsided, we get up early and shop till we drop. We give thanks on Thursday for full bellies and on Friday for Black Friday sales (or if you are like me, just wait until Cyber Monday and shop from the comfort of your own home). We spend several days celebrating family, tradition, great sales and good food. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving however, it is time to reflect. For the past several years, this day has been fondly recognized as #GivingTuesday – A day when we take a moment to acknowlegde those in need and the ways we are able to give back.
A Commitment to Our Communities is one of our key promises here at Protiviti. As you may have seen throughout our various blog posts or by following the hashtag #ProtivitiCares, events such as The Intern Day of Service or our Community Scholarship Project showcase the way Protiviti cares deeply about our community. While different offices take on various local projects, the biggest global focus for our community is the fight against hunger. We started the i on Hunger campaign several years ago and have proudly celebrated several major milestones along the way. From packing 500,000 meals all the way to 3,000,000 meals, we have now surpassed the 3.5 million mark and still remain dedicated to feeding those in need.
With only a few short weeks left in 2016, we want to know how you are giving back. What is your focus for the remainder of the year? We look forward to seeing the impact you are making on your community!
