2019 is one for the books!
This year we saw Netezza become a memory, launched New Platform on Snowflake and delivered countless reports, many ad-hoc requests and, we’re doing an amazing job of supporting internal and external guest through Peak. We’ve been supported by some amazing Partners on our team and throughout Lululemon. Now’s our chance to turn to our community and support our neighbors.
We look around and see so many signs of prosperity during the holiday season. We plan for dinners and nights with family and friends. At the same time, 12.5% of our community is living below the poverty line (about 84,000 people) and many are housing and food insecure. We see this every day; and while many of us are celebrating and cherishing time with family and friends these neighbors count on food donations throughout the holiday season to make it through.
While this need is a national and global one we have the chance and the power to make a difference right here at home! We are doing this through a food drive in partnership with Food Lifeline. Donations for this food drive are being taken in the form of non-perishable food or online donations. At the end of each week, we’ll calculate the food (i.e. each full box = ~20lbs) and the donations online ($1 = 2lbs) and divide it by the number of team members in the Seattle SSC office for each team. (This allows us to ensure bigger teams don’t have an advantage!). This also means even $1 counts!!!
Please consider donating this season! – As a bit of fun we’ve made this a contest so if prizes motivate you consider yourself motivated!
