At Vonage, one of our core values is to Do the Right Thing, and we proudly live by that daily. Employees are encouraged to participate in volunteer efforts throughout the year, giving back to their local communities, helping families and children in need, and spending time in service to others. Recently, a team from our Holmdel, NJ headquarters had the pleasure of helping to beautify the grounds at Collier Youth Services as they prepared for graduation and summer camp.
Collier Youth Services provides a wide variety of programs and support for the local community, with a mission to provide at-risk youth a chance to grow toward their potential in an environment that promotes belonging, dignity and hope. With a large campus and beautiful grounds, they were looking for a little help with spring cleaning. Vonage team members left behind their desks and computers for a day to pick up rakes and paint brushes, working hard to make sure that everything was ready for the graduation ceremony and incoming summer camp.
We also had the honor of meeting several of the student mentors from the Collier Middle School. These students were bright and engaging as they gave us a tour, clearly proud of both the school and themselves. It was a joy to meet them - a BIG thank you to all of our tour guides!
