The mission of our ‘ShiftGiving’ corporate social responsibility program is to empower Shiftgig employees to make a difference in the local Chicago community. Last month, and for the second year in a row, we hosted an elementary school to help make the holidays a little sweeter for 4th and 5th graders, as well as kids part of the STLS program where less fortunate families are assisted through additional funding.
At the end of November, 35 children from the Dvorak School of Excellence wrote a letter with some of the gifts they needed or hoped to receive during the holidays. Shiftgig employees then sponsored a student to purchase the items from their list. Requests spanned from clothing, to toys, to books, to accessories, with all gifts being delivered on December 21st to some very happy children. Learn more about the Dvorak School of Excellence here.
