Last week, Mary recognized the work that we're doing at Sun's NH office for the Nashua Children's Home. (I just love the NCH project and get excited every year seeing Sun employees make an extra effort to provide local kids with happy holiday memories!)
This week, I'd like to give a 'shout out' for the additional project that Sun Women in the Boston area are leading right now.....a HUGE drive to support the Lowell Wish Project. Within just a few days, 99 "wish tags" were accounted for by Sun employees in the Boston area -- and I know many of them are out shopping tonite.
This project is being led by Michele Walker and Tricia Teixeira (both are people I've known for many years at Sun and I'm glad that this project helped us to get reacquainted.) This is the first drive that Michele and Tricia have led for the entire Burlington campus and their energy and enthusiasm has been inspiring to our local employees.
I wondered how they would manage so many 'wishes' knowing that our local community is very distributed. With their IT and Web backgrounds, they convinced some of our engineering employees to donate some volunteer time to create an internal wiki - kind of a virtual holiday tree - for employees to access 'tags' from anywhere. Very cool and I'm sure the start of a best practice that will be replicated across Sun.
Thank you to Tricia and Michele for the work you've done....I'll look forward to joining you and all of the other volunteers whom you recruited to take care of the final packaging and delivery at our Burlington campus later next week!
