As part of our commitment to give back to our community, Wodify donates its time, effort, and resources each quarter to worthwhile charities and organizations. This quarter, our US office visited the Philadelphia branch of Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization that provides disadvantaged children with the resources they need to feel valued and dignified at school, at home, and at play.
In the morning, our team was separated into small groups and positioned at different stations. While some of us sorted clothes and toys from bags of donations, others went “shopping” around the warehouse, collecting items like clothing packs, school supplies, newborn essentials, winter coats, shoes, toys, and books to build care packages for individual children, based on their needs. With every item we could fulfill from our checklists, our smiles got a little bit wider.
The work we did at Cradles to Crayons made me proud to be a part of the Wodify team. Everyone approached the day with a great attitude, and we were able to accomplish so much while also having a lot of fun. Molly Gold, Executive Assistant
After lunch, it was time to do some heavy lifting. Literally. As the weather changes, Cradles to Crayons’ stock has to be rotated to provide recipients with seasonal clothes and shoes. So while many on our team continued to categorize incoming donations, others reorganized heavy bags of clothing from within the large warehouse, bringing full bags of Spring-appropriate items down from the shelves, and hauling Winter apparel back up. Did it become competitive? Maybe.
This was my first experience at a Wodify philanthropy event. I had an amazing time getting to know people from different departments, all while helping out a great cause. Mike Trinh, Senior Cloud Network Engineer
We’re thrilled at having been able to positively affect the lives of hundreds of kids, with just a few hours of hard work. Wodify is always looking to help organizations near our offices in Philadelphia, PA and Lisbon, Portugal. If you know one that deserves our attention, please reach out!
