LogicMonitor is fortunate to have offices in some of the best cities around the world. We have offices in Santa Barbara, Austin, London, Sydney, Singapore and Stockholm. These cities give us talented employees, amazing office spaces and even better views. Each quarter, the LM Cares volunteer program gives employees an outlet to give back to the community. Some organizations we’ve partnered with in the past include the Food Bank, the Boys & Girls Club of America, the Public Library, and Macmillan Cancer Support.
This quarter, LogicMonitor partnered with the Food Bank in our Santa Barbara and Austin offices. The Food Bank of Santa Barbara County provides food support to one in four local people through their 300 programs and partners every year. Half of the food distributed is fresh produce (over 10 million pounds). Our Santa Barbara employees donated their time and resources to gleaning mandarins at a local farm.
“It was great to partner with the SB food bank to collect mandarins in Goleta for our community. It was super well organized and I’m grateful to give back to the community that supports our organization,” said Samuel Dacanay, Engineering Manager, LogicMonitor.
The Central Texas Food Bank has a variety of programs including community kitchens, gardens, and a warehouse. They distribute over 920,000 pounds of food every year and their gardens provide more than 1.3 million pounds of produce. Our Austin employees spent the morning working in the food bank community kitchen. They prepped school meals and sorted and packaged food for the distribution of 5,250 meals throughout the community.
“I had such a fun day with my teammates volunteering at the Central Texas Food Bank, and it even better knowing we were helping feed our community. I worked in the warehouse helping sort and pack 6,500 lbs of food for distribution to families in need. The music was blaring, the pallets were moving, and boxes were getting filled at a staggeringly rapid pace. I love working at a place that values community service and takes opportunities to give back to the cities we love,” said Kate Evetts, Social Media Specialist, LogicMonitor.
In addition to giving back to our local communities, the LM Cares events enable LogicMonitor employees to spend some time outside of the office and make meaningful connections with teammates across different departments. We are already looking forward to next quarter’s events and we’re excited to further expand the program to all of our international offices in 2020.
