Industry Awareness and Community Service Highlight World FM Day for Qube US team
Donating time and positive energy for a day of community service to benefit worthy local businesses is what the second annual World FM Day is all about. On June 24th, Qube Global Software is sponsoring a day of service in Philadelphia. In partnership with Philadelphia IFMA, facilities professionals have the opportunity to reach out to their community by doing something positive for the image of our profession and bring awareness of the industry to the world.
Under the guidance of Greater Philadelphia Cares, we have targeted two projects in need of volunteer hours. SHARE (Self Help and Resource Exchange) entails packaging, labeling and storing food in exchange for discounted parcels of food for purchase. The NKCDC (New Kensington Community Development Corporation) is a nonprofit company that supports the redevelopment of local neighborhoods. Volunteers will assist in cleaning, painting and planting.
“A positive way to make a donation is through giving your own time and energy,” said Matthew Sheldrick, Vice President of Business Development. “After spending a day with Habitat for Humanity New Orleans at the Spring CoreNet conference in April, it proved that money only provides the materials to do the project; it’s the heart and soul of the volunteers who get the job done.”
On 11 September 2016, HR Director Jacqui Adams, HR Administrator Sarah Eite and Account Executive Darren Gould will be participating in the Great North Run to raise money for charities that are close to their hearts: Alzheimer’s Society, Breast Cancer Care and Farplace Animal Rescue.
Five of our staff are to run the second ever 10k London Winter Run to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
