Let’s hear it for Groupon! We’re so grateful for the volunteers who come to us through this corporate partnership, and we’re excited to highlight them as our January Volunteer Group of the Month.
Please continue reading below to learn more about Groupon’s experience with Inspiration Corporation:
How did you hear about Inspiration Corporation?
Groupon has been a supporter of Inspiration Corporation for several years. All it took was one staff volunteer to bring a group over, and we were hooked! Now we have several individuals and teams that like to stay involved and volunteer regularly with the organization!
For the Participant Holiday Party, our Employee Volunteer Program partnered with Women@Groupon to provide volunteers to serve dinner. We had a lot of interest and are very pleased to continue our involvement with this special event this year.
What is the most enjoyable part of volunteering for you?
At Groupon, volunteering is about giving back to the community where we work and doing our part to contribute. The best parts about volunteering are knowing that we are truly impacting the lives of others and that we have the opportunity to connect with people, like the participants at Inspiration Cafe.
What aspect of volunteering are you most excited about? What is the most challenging?
Groupon employees are always excited to come together to make a difference and its even more exciting when volunteering involves learning or trying something new. At the same time, learning and going outside of your comfort zone can be challenging, but definitely worth it!
Groupon has a long history of giving back through our Employee Volunteer Program and our Employee Resource Groups like Women@Groupon. We have hundreds of employees that participate in volunteer initiatives annually!
Why do you volunteer?
Giving back is a large part of the Groupon culture, especially locally. Our headquarters are right here in Chicago, and supporting organizations and individuals in our community is a top priority.
