In the giving spirit of the holiday season, Citrix organizes holiday drives in offices across the globe each year to benefit those in need. This year, the ShareFile office gave employees several holiday drive options, which were planned by our community service committee, SHARE.
The holiday drive officially kicked off on Monday, Nov. 18, and runs through Friday, Dec. 13. Employees can donate toys, clothing, food items or cash to the amazing charities that ShareFile chose to support this year. Those charities include:
- The Salvation Army of Wake County, which provides food, clothing, shelter and other various assistance for more than 15,000 people in need throughout Wake County.
- The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, which provides food to people at risk of hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina.
- The American Red Cross, which provides disaster relief, blood donation and emergency preparedness across the globe.
In addition to the general drive, the SHARE committee adopted two children from the Angel Tree organized by the Salvation Army, and participating employees are purchasing needed clothing items for these children for the year.
We try not to just limit our giving to the designated holiday drive either. If employees have a charity that is near and dear to their hearts but not included in the holiday drive, Citrix has offered to double any donation they would like to make this holiday season.
ShareFile shares more than just files year round, but we’re especially thankful during the holiday season to be able to give back to the communities in which we live and work. We hope that our donations this year make the holiday season a little brighter for those we’re serving.
