Derby District gives back.

Oct 30, 2017

The Derby District in Louisville,KY volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Metro Louisville on October 11th. Partnering with Google Fiber, the team helped frame a house for a single mother of three. The day consisted of two teams working together to put up walls and outlining the house's blueprint for the stairs to go in. What better way to team build then working hard in the rain? Why stop there?

Showing loving care for “Pink Lavender”

Oct 27, 2017

On 27.Oct 2017, WUH Post Sales Solutions team lead a great activity to support children with cerebral palsy and Down's syndrome, we call them “Pink Lavender”. As we know, the color of Lavender is purple, it’s very different when lavender is pink, but it’s as beautiful as purple lavender, just like the children, even though they are mostly of lower childhood IQ, they still can play like normal kids through long-term practice.
