Welcome to our October edition of the RentPath Gives Back (RPGB) monthly newsletter!
October 10th marks World Homeless Day, the annual event to bring awareness and help drive efforts to end homelessness around the world. I couldn't be more proud to see how quickly our employees have stepped up to join these global efforts and are already having a real impact in the local communities where we live and work.
In this issue you will find:
- An outing to The Packaged Good & Mary Hall Freedom House - attended by 35 RentPath Employees - our largest event so far. RentPath volunteers helped create care packages for women, and their children, struggling to break the cycle of addiction, poverty, and homelessness in the metro-Atlanta area.
- Check out how 4 members of our Denver / Colorado Springs sales team took time out of their day to serve meals at the Denver Rescue Mission.
- See how 12 RentPath employees put their culinary skills to the test as they cooked a fish fry dinner at the Nicholas House.
Don't miss reading about -- and seeing photos -- of all the great events mentioned above, as well as an opportunity to donate to the RentPath Gives Back Fundraising Challenge. Thanks to all who have already donated, including the Northeast District 4 Sales team, who pooled their funds together and donated one check on behalf of the entire team. Way to be united in the cause! Our goal is to raise $100K by the end of the year, so we need your help! I know direct contribution is a personal commitment, but I urge you to consider donating. Remember, no amount is too small. Ideally I would love to tell the world that 100% of our employees have donated to the cause.
Lastly, some administrative updates to share. Due to the overwhelmingly high number of requests to get involved and create events in your local communities, what we thought we could manage through email has become unmanageable (a good problem to have). As a result, the team has instituted a more streamlined approach to requesting approval for events. We hope that this new process will be more effective in getting events approved quickly, with little friction. I strongly encourage you take advantage of your three paid volunteer days by gathering your teams and creating events that have meaningful impact to ending homelessness within your communities. In addition, the team created a document for employees to reference, where you can find answers to commonly asked questions.
For those of you are already giving of your time, skills and financial resources, THANK YOU! For those that are still thinking about how to get involved, please use this issue of the RPGB newsletter as inspiration and motivation. Homelessness can be eliminated. With your help, we will make it happen.
Best Personal Regards,
