Rubicon Project’s Q1 Community Week was a huge success and proved once again to be a rewarding way to engage our local offices in their respective communities. In support of our company’s cultural values, our community initiatives enable team members to learn to better work together as a team while also giving back. Here are some highlights from Q1 Community Week:
At L.A. headquarters, we joined forces with Heal the Bay, an organization dedicated to making southern California’s coastal waters and watersheds safe and clean, for a coastal cleanup at local Dockweiler State Beach. As a team, we collected 179 pounds of trash and 2,204 cigarette butts!
In San Francisco, team members met up at Alemany Farms, a 3.5 acre organic farm, where they spent an afternoon weed cutting, trenching, seed planting, and building crop fences to support local agriculture.
Our New York office worked alongside the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, the largest emergency feeding program in New York City, to pack and distribute meals, personal care products and clothing to those in need.
Seattle team members headed over to Jackson Park in north Seattle with EarthCorps, an organization that engages volunteers in environmental service projects. Their goal: to help restore the local environment by removing as many invasive weeds as possible (and any other debris they could find along the way!).
Looking forward to next quarter’s Community Week!
