Vivint partners with nonprofit dedicated to character education
From the middle through the end of July, Vivint employees at the corporate office in Provo, UT, used their free time to help the local nonprofit group Learning for Life.
Learning for Life is an organization dedicated to teaching character education and leadership to children from kindergarten through high school. As a nonprofit they provide these services for free and rely on volunteer work to help them accomplish their programs and goals.
Employees helped make character building packets for the new school year, decoration kits, other learning games, and passports for the organization’s annual Holidays around the World event.
“Holidays around the World invites multiethnic and multicultural organizations and groups to come for four days and share their stories, dances, songs, and everything else that makes up their unique culture with anyone who is in attendance. It is a celebration of the diversity that our student bring from various parts of the world,” director Janee’ Livingston said.
Volunteers came from every department, proving Vivint’s dedication to giving back. Becca Stewart, service support administrator, wanted her whole team to be able to participate in the service project. Stewart organized the schedules of the professionals in service support so that all 40 of them could participate during their shifts. Leon Eddie, initial customer experience representative, gave his time whenever he could to cut out paper goods and assemble candy packets. “I enjoyed giving my time to a worthy cause and I look forward to many more opportunities to do so through Vivint,” Eddie said.
For many employees giving back has turned into a family affair. Jason Stokes, field service director, brought his two sons ages 13 and seven to help with the project. The boys volunteered for an entire day and helped prepare candy bags and cut out snowflakes. Stokes was grateful to see his sons learn to love serving others and is especially grateful to Vivint for consistently providing service opportunities.
“To see so many taking time out of their day to do just a little is super encouraging. We are privileged to work in an organization that cares so much about giving back—an organization that allows us to grow as individuals by giving us the opportunity to help others. I believe there is no better way to boost your mood and grow as a person than to help others,” Stokes said.
Gratitude was plentiful for volunteers and the nonprofit alike. Vivint was happy to partner with such a worthwhile organization and Learning for Life was appreciative of the assistance.
“The Vivint volunteers have been amazing. They have spent countless hours cutting out snowflakes, putting decoration kits and passports together for this year’s annual Holidays around the World,” Livingston said.
