The Protiviti volunteer team together in The Cottage Shop
Just a week before the Thanksgiving holiday, a team of eager women from the Protiviti Group, led by Protiviti team leader, An Yu, rolled up their sleeves for a morning of volunteering at our Cottage Shop. Protiviti is a global consulting and internal audit firm composed of experts specializing in risk and advisory services. Yu first enlisted Protiviti’s women’s group by hosting a clothing drive at their Houston office. The two-week clothing drive netted bags and bags of clothing, which the ladies brought with them to the resale shop that day to sort and price.
For many of these women, it was their first time visiting The Women’s Home and The Cottage Shop. They were treated a tour of the upstairs life learning center and heard more about our program.“After the event, I spoke with many participants who unanimously agreed that it was an incredible afternoon,” says Lindsy Wilson, a consultant at Protiviti.
The ladies also raised about $500 dollars for The Women’s Home through its “Doers for Dollars” Program, in which Protiviti matched funds for employee volunteer hours.
These women promised to return again, and we are grateful and look forward to hosting them again!
