While it was a short month, staff across the U.S. enjoyed taking time to support organizations we believe in through PCG Cares. Check out our latest round-up below for highlights from our February volunteer work.
Spreading the love
PCGers are always generous with volunteering their time to those in need, so it’s no surprise that in February, several offices channeled the heartwarming vibes of Valentine’s Day to make their latest volunteer efforts extra special. On February 13th, also known as Galentine’s Day, the Boston team hosted a DIY celebration for the occasion. They made Valentine's Day cards and care packages for mothers and babies who participate in Room to Grow and the Jeremiah Program, two organizations that support mothers and babies in poverty.

The Downtown Phoenix office organized a volunteer event at the Salvation Army Laura Danieli Senior Center on February 14th. They set up the tables, served drinks and meals, mingled with the senior residents, and even stayed for some Valentine's Day dancing with the residents.

Braving the cold for two special causes
Sacramento’s Technology Consulting team supported three brave employees in a Polar Plunge in Lake Natoma on February 9th benefiting the athletes of Special Olympics Northern California and Nevada. The generosity of the Sacramento office and the PCG corporate match allowed these three to raise nearly $2,500 for Team PCG as part of an event expected to top $50,000 in total donations and matches. It was cold but absolutely worth it!

On February 23rd, the Public Partnerships team in Phoenix hiked the local South Mountain as part of the Climb to Conquer Cancer hosted by the American Cancer Society. It was a chilly morning around 35 degrees (COLD for Arizona) when the group started the 5.5-mile hike. Luckily, once the sun came out and the team got moving, they all warmed up and made it to the summit! Knowing that their efforts are going towards an important cause made it even more worth it to see the entire city and the snow on distant mountain tops.
