This May 5th, organizations around the world are coming together for #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day that celebrates generosity and unity in response to COVID-19. As a Pledge 1% member, Smith Design has committed to leveraging our assets to have an impact, and now– more than ever– we are rallying our teams and partners to give back.
As a way to give back to our frontline heroes, Smith Design participated in FLAG, Front Line Appreciation Group. The group was started by 2 women in New Jersey and has grown nationwide. Their mission is to ensure that frontline workers are fed and cared for. Our team joined their cause by filling out Flag Fuel Boxes. These Fuel Boxes provide food and words of encouragement for the frontline and essential workers who are helping all of us during this time.
Supplies for the boxes were purchased and donated by Smith Design. 7 employees and their families packed the care packages and wrote personal notes for the heroes. We designed a sticker to emphasize our appreciation. Together, we completed 172 boxes!
We can’t thank our frontline workers enough for all that they are doing.
This pandemic is affecting every person on Earth. Only together will we heal and recover. We encourage you to join us and other members of the business community in giving whatever you can to help. Together, we are a force for good.
