Tis The Season To Be Giving
I wanted to take a moment and recognize one of our team members, Erick Gochez, for demonstrating the true spirit of giving this holiday season.
Erick has been a regular volunteer for over 10 years and recently assisted at Pacific Palisades High School where the Red Cross set up one of three shelters in the area for people displaced by the terrible destruction of the Woolsey Fire.
While at the shelter, he helped out with food and donation distribution, reception and registration, and safety checks of dormitory areas.
Volunteers such as Erick are everyday heroes to many and every small act of kindness that they selflessly give on their free time inspires hope to those who have fallen on hard times to not only prevail through hardship for themselves, but to strive to help others in return.
President and CEO of Storage Commander Software, Thomas Smith, encourages team members to take action and has generously sponsored Erick to volunteer at the Red Cross where he can make a difference and continue giving back to the community.
This holiday season we encourage you to do what you can.
Whether it be donating food, blood, or simply your time – and make a difference.
For information on how you can help, visit www.redcross.org or check for local organizations in your community.
Lastly, I’ll leave with with some photos of the Red Cross shelter below.
Happy holidays, and thank you again to all of our local heroes.
