Teddy Bear Drive for Memphis Child Advocacy Center

Oct 31, 2017

In the month of October, 2017, the eGIS and eGPS team collected teddy bears and other donations for the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, which helps children recover from abuse. These teddy bears will become a part of the children's recovery program and make up the teddy bear wall at the agency. Children will get to pick a teddy bear from the wall on their first visit. The team will conduct a site visit in November to deliver these teddy bears and other donations. We hope these donations will help provide comfort to children during their recovery.

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?
