- The Austin, Texas, office will be partnering with The Salvation Army Austin, helping with projects to complete construction on a new Women and Children’s Shelter so that it can open its doors by the end of the year.
- The Denver, Colo., office will be volunteering at the Denver Project Homeless Connect, a one-day convention that offers homeless visitors access to an array of resources and services to help them become self-sufficient.
- The Sydney, Australia, office will be working with Thread Together, where they will be sorting, organizing, and packing clothing and shoes that will be donated to homeless people, refugees, and at-risk youth in the Sydney area.
- Remote team members will be volunteering with Ronald McDonald House, Cradles to Crayons, Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, Baby 2 Baby, and Charlie’s (no-kill) Animal Shelter.
