Giving Children Hope was first introduced to Schneider Electric when one of their employees, Alicia, came to our Ecuador relief volunteer night with her son’s boy scout troop. Alicia was so moved by volunteering that night, she realized that she wanted to help out Giving Children Hope again in a bigger way. She knew that it could be done with the help of her co-workers at Schneider Electric. Schneider Electric is best known as a global specialist in providing sustainable and safe energy for 100 countries all over the world.
Alicia took it upon herself to plan a day for 20 Schneider employees to volunteer at Giving Children Hope. The volunteers helped sort Disney merchandise and fill backpacks for the We’ve Got Your Back program. They were ecstatic to have the opportunity to help out their local community. Along with donating their time, Schneider Electric also donated food and $4,500 to Giving Children Hope!
After volunteering in the We’ve Got Your Back program, a Schneider volunteer came back a month later willing to offer more of his time to translate responses from families from Spanish to English. “It’s a meaningful experience to help out in a positive way,” he shared.
Giving Children Hope is grateful for Alicia and all of the employees at Schneider Electric for making it their mission to serve vulnerable children across the street and around the world! Keep up the amazing work!
