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
Throughout the year, 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.
Vitalyst employees have also worked with local nonprofits to share their technology expertise. In the past, we have teamed up with IT Works, a nonprofit that provides free IT training to young adults in Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE. For the partnership, we hired IT Works students as interns, and paired them with volunteer mentors, who also led workshops and spoke at lunch sessions.
We have also hosted workshops for middle-school girls and provided volunteers for other technology-focused initiatives in conjunction with the Philadelphia-based TechGirlz organization.
In Pennsylvania, we sent volunteers to Philabundance in early June 2017—25 Vitalyst employees sorted and packed 6,000 lbs of meat and other frozen and prepared foods in less than two hours. Our volunteers also helped out at the organization in December 2016.
Also that month, employees in our Ohio office spent two hours at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank sorting and packing 5,520 lbs of produce. In December 2016, they held their annual food drive.
Vitalyst competed in the Warrior Dash, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, August 2015.
We led a TechShopz in a Box session with TechGirlz, February 2015.
