Q1 Carepages: Rainier Scholars College Care Packages
At Whitepages, we strive to create a community that allows cross-collaboration during our work schedule while also forming interest groups specialized to individual members. Carepages is one affinity group that brings members of our team together to get involved and focus on a specific need within our community. This can include a fundraising event within the office itself or going out to a non-profit to help volunteer.
Every quarter, our goal is to select a cause or group to support. This quarter we partnered with Rainier Scholars, putting together college care packages for students in the program. For anyone that is not familiar, Rainier Scholars is a twelve-year program that offers a pathway to college graduation for hard-working, low-income students of color.
Each team in our office was encouraged to put a care package together for a selected student including snacks, toothpaste, allergy medication, and other fun items. All of the items were chosen with the individual student in mind as a pick-me-up for the middle of the school year.
Carepages is one of the many affinity groups that we have at the office. Other groups include Pridepages, Women of Whitepages, and Book Club.
