Education and sustainability key focus, World FM Day | June 29, 2012
For Qube Global Software, philanthropy plays a major role in our business operations philosophy. A total of $450 will be donated to Riverbend Environmental Education Center between all sponsoring companies. As a renewed headline sponsor of Global FM, both the USA and UK offices were active participants in World FM Day, a worldwide event celebrating the Facility Management industry.
While the UK team hosted an educational webinar, the US team got their hands dirty in a day of community service in the Greater Philadelphia area. Spearheaded by Britany Wright (Marketing Administrator) and Sharon G. Miller (US Marketing Manager), volunteers partnered with Riverbend Environmental Education Center that focuses its efforts in connecting children to nature in a fun, creative and recreational environment.
A total of 14 volunteers worked alongside representatives from Riverbend, tending the grounds surrounding the center’s 30 acres of natural landscaping. From de-vining ‘mile a minute’ weeds and watering plants, to planting trees and plants, volunteers from the local Greater Philadelphia Chapter of IFMA steadily worked throughout the day.
“This year we wanted to expand our efforts into the community, with a focus on the environment and green initiative. Following World FM Day’s theme of celebrating success, we chose Riverbend’s educational center because of its powerful impact on the children of our community.” Sharon G. Miller, US Marketing Manager continued by stating that “we were extremely thankful for all of our volunteers, especially those who are continued supporters of our community service initiative.”
Along with Qube Global Software volunteers, other IFMA Chapter member volunteers included representatives from: Vanguard; CHOP; Elsevier; LM Services; Lor-Mar; Millicare; Comcast; PNC Bank; Rafferty Painting; The Philadelphia Marriott West; Barry Isett & Associates; Shaw Contract Group; and Document Technologies, Inc.
