One of things I love most about Zenreach is our employees’ commitment to giving back. Whether it’s donating school supply-filled backpacks for students in need to mobilizing and helping those who’ve been affected by natural disasters, Zenreach cares and we show it.
2017 “Zencares” Highlights
San Francisco: In April, the SF Zenreach team joined forces with hundreds of other people to lend helping hands to The Surfrider Foundation in an effort to keep the Bay Area’s beaches pristine at Ocean Beach, San Francisco. From plastic and trash collection, to beautifying parts of the beach, Zenreach team members took to nurturing the beautiful oceanfront close to the San Francisco office.
“It was a great opportunity to do something great for the environment with some of my favorite people in the world, my colleagues at Zenreach.” – Swapnesh Chaubal, Senior Software Engineer
Phoenix: This summer, employees at the Phoenix office raised funds for Central Arizona Shelter Services’ Heat Relief Initiative. This initiative provides shelter beds, bottled water, and air conditioning services as relief to the homeless during Arizona’s extreme heat temperatures. Within the Phoenix office, employees came together as teams in competition to raise the most funds with the incentive to earn priority lunch privileges (a big deal and bragging rights in the Phoenix office). The fundraising competition came down to a large last-minute donation stealing first place for the winning Upmarket Team (congrats again, team!). Overall, Zenreach was able to donate over $2,000 to CASS and see impact in real-time.
“Summers in Phoenix can be incredibly taxing and the most affected by the extreme weather is our city’s homeless population. Lack of adequate water and shelter can mean life or death, and as an individual invested in this community, it was meaningful to partner with my fellow co-workers to provide life supporting amenities in such a time of need.” – Carmen DeCouto, Sales Trainer
San Francisco: This Fall, San Francisco employees mobilized to help those affected by the North Bay Fires. Initiating a clothing and supplies drive, Zenreach’s Operations Manager, Samantha Hamto, in San Francisco rallied not only Zenreach employees but other companies in the building to participate. The response was overwhelming and over a two-week period, employees donated enough supplies to fill three car loads of donations.
“It’s an honor to be able to organize opportunities for my colleagues and I at Zenreach to give back. It reflects our company culture on how much we not only care about our community, but we also care about making an impact. Everything we do, we want to make change – within our company, within our roles, and Zencares is just one of the many ways we can make that happen.” – Samantha Hamto, Operations Manager
