At Vitalyst, we are committed to improving the communities in which we work and live.That’s why our employees are out making a difference—and having fun doing so. Whether we’re wading through a muddy obstacle course to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or volunteering at local food banks, we are proud of the comradery and spirit our employees display when asked to volunteer their time.
Out and About
Every year during the winter holidays, Vitalyst employees donate their time to help local food banks. We contribute to food drives, and help stock shelves and sort food donations. We provide these services by teaming up with Philabundance in Philadelphia and The Greater Cleveland Food Bank in Cleveland
At other times during the year, we work with local nonprofits to share our technology expertise.
We team up with IT Works, a nonprofit organization that provides free IT training to young adults in Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE. As part of the partnership, we hire IT Works students as interns, and provide them with volunteers who serve as mentors, lead workshops and speak at lunch sessions.
We also host workshops for middle-school girls and provide volunteers for other technology-focused initiatives in conjunction with the Philadelphia-based TechGirlz organization
Paving the way for a new annual tradition, Vitalyst participated in the Warrior Dash to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On a hot Saturday in August, 2015, more than two dozen Vitalyst employees gathered in Millville, NJ, to compete in the 5k obstacle course. The Vitalyst team—the largest corporate group in attendance that day—leapt over hot coals, scaled 14-foot walls, and crawled through a lot of mud. The group was proud to complete the course, enjoyed the camaraderie of the day, and felt great knowing they were contributing to an important cause.
- In Pennsylvania, we sent volunteers to Philabundance in late December.
- Our Ohio office recently wrapped up its annual food drive to benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and also sent volunteers to the food bank’s warehouse to help sort and pack donations.
