As part of our commitment to give back to the communities in and around Lisbon and Philadelphia, Wodify participates in quarterly philanthropy events that also serve to strengthen our bonds outside the office. This quarter, members of our Portugal office assisted Sagrada Familia, a non-profit association that helps underprivileged families and individuals.
One part of its mission is providing nursery and preschool care for young children. Our team had the privilege of spending the day with dozens of two-to-five year-olds and tackling a few necessary jobs at the Center: decorating classrooms, preparing snacks, delivering and assembling toys and gifts, and decorating their two Christmas trees.
Being able to interact with the children at the Sagrada Familia Center is definitely a memory that I will cherish. Their happiness and joy for life is something we could all learn from. — Natércia Simões, Operations and Office Manager
The most magical moment came when the children received their gifts, as their joy and laughter spread throughout the building. The employees at the Sagrada Familia Center were very appreciative and thanked us for our commitment and support. That feeling of pride in being able to give back, especially during the holiday season, is what our philanthropy program is all about.
It was wonderful to see the kids’ reactions when they entered the rooms decorated for Christmas. They loved it! It was magical…Thank you very much! — Sagrada Familia Center employee
Ours is not a one-time effort. The Wodify team volunteers its time, services, and profits to worthwhile charities and programs in the area four times a year. If you know of an organization that deserves our attention, please reach out!
