Giving Back to the Communities we serve continues
Giving back to our communities is an important element of how we do business, but never has it been more important than during our current COVID-19 crisis.
Our operations across the country are finding ways to give back. Here we are highlighting two great examples – one from the east coast and the other from the west coast.
NICE Bus Team Food Drive Feeds Neighbors
Our NICE team in New York recently organized a food drive effort in support of their local neighbors.
The team donated roughly 800 lbs of food to The INN of Hempstead – a not-for-profit helping to support thousands of local families dealing with the economic effects of COVID-19.
The INN volunteers were incredibly grateful for the food donation and excited to unload and organize our goods to get them in the hands of those who needed it most as soon as possible.
The INN is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization, that provides a wide variety of essential services to assist those challenged by hunger, homelessness, and profound poverty.
We are so proud of our NICE employees who make the commitment to support their community and help to make a difference close to home!
Phoenix Operations Coordinate Successful Supply Drive for Baby Needs
Transdev Phoenix continues to partner with the community. In the past, employees have donated Little Free Libraries, held a children’s book drive, served meals to the homeless, and donated Christmas presents to families in need, among many other outreach projects. The COVID-19 crisis prompted employees to step up once again.
Recently, employees donated diapers, wipes, formula, and hand sanitizer. Southwest Human Development will distribute the supplies to the Valley’s neediest families.
Spearheaded by the Customer Service Department, the supply collection will help parents who are struggling financially due to the pandemic.
Lori Sciame, Customer Service Supervisor, applauds her fellow co-workers for being so generous. “I thank those who donated.” She adds, “It’s wonderful to coordinate a project that benefits one of our greatest resources, children.”
