[BLOG] Our Spring 2017 Explorer was just released and is once again filled with stories that show how committed we are to our Clients, Company and Communities. We’re so proud of our Team that we just had to share our top 10 favorites – take a look!
1. Coming Together to Learn, Share and Grow at the Annual Summit
Access Team Leaders traveled near and far to attend our Annual Summit in Orlando this January. Attendees enjoyed the mild winter weather while participating in a variety of networking, learning and celebratory events, including the Annual Summit Awards ceremony, where individuals and Teams were recognized for their remarkable achievements and dedication to the Better Way!
2. Working Towards a Greater Cause
The Annual Summit wasn’t just about celebrating – it was also a chance to give back to the Community. All 200 attendees came together for an event with the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) organization. In just two hours, they packed 54,432 Mannapack meals that are designed to reverse malnutrition.
The meals were shipped to Nicaragua through FMSC’s partner, Food for the Poor, and will feed 149 children for an entire year!
3. Climbing Mountains to Fight Cancer
Team Phoenix laced up their hiking shoes and flexed their muscles before climbing a total of 5.5 miles (with an elevation change of approximately 1,100 feet) in the American Cancer Society’s Climb to Conquer Cancer. Together, they raised $440 towards the cause!
4. Expanding Our Offerings
As Access continues to grow, so do our locations. Access Brazil started building a new facility in Itupeva that, when complete, will be 416,000 square feet. We can’t wait to see the finished product!
5. Protecting the Community’s Information
Team SoCal joined forces with our client, Creekside Village East Home Owner’s Association (HOA), to host a free shredding event at their facilities. Many residents showed up to discard their expired documents, and it was such a success that plans for next year’s event are already in the works!
6. Spreading Holiday Cheer
Our Branches in Cerritos, Ontario, Moorpark and San Diego adopted families this past holiday season, hand-delivering gifts and essential supplies to make their holidays a little bit brighter.
7. Donating to a Great Cause
Team Pittsburgh got into the giving spirit this year, collecting monetary and toy donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
8. Showing Our Clients Some Love
We love our clients, and we like to show it, too! This Valentine’s Day, the Columbus Team created gifts for our clients, then our Transportation Specialists hand-delivered them around town.
9. Delivering to Those in Need
Taking time out of his own schedule, Team Member Kylan Wilson drove over 50 boxes of clothing and toys from Evendale, OH all the way to Beattyville, KY. The boxes were delivered to the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Beattyville, where they were given to children in need.
10. Helping to Feed the Community
Our Sacramento Branch coordinated a food collection event to benefit Loaves & Fishes. Team Members all joined in to help families in need and share the Access Way!
