Four Years of Giving Back
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) events are what keep our passion going for team building. Sure, all of our events are a ton of fun, but to be able to give back to our local communities in events like the Bicycle Build-Off, Operation Impact, and Jam Session, is the ultimate experience in team building.
It’s the amazing moments that teams remember and talk about for years. Like when this little girl chose her brand-new teddy bear at an Operation Teddy Bear event. When asked if this was the first bear she has ever had, she responded, “It’s the first new toy that I have ever gotten that’s all mine.” She hugged it this close for the rest of the event and never let go.
Or when deserving high-school students who thought they were competing against each other for the grand prize of one new musical instrument in our Jam Session event, find out that in fact they are all getting brand new instruments that day – and are brought to tears.
And especially when kids from a local organization like After-School All-Stars, arrive to a Bicycle Build-Off event not knowing that they will be going home that day with a brand-new bike. Remember when you got your first bike as a child? Well, imagine thinking as that child, that you knew you would never get a bike of your own and suddenly a brand-new one is given to you. It’s amazing and it is Corporate Social Responsibility events with R&D Events.
