The power of helping others
In 2011, 2012, and 2013 iSoftStone teamed up with the Make a Change Foundation (MAC) to make a difference in the lives of less fortunate children during the holiday season. The iSoftStone team raised $5,000 in cash donations and purchased 280 brand new bicycles, helmets, and bicycle locks for children of the Tillicum Youth & Family Center in Tacoma Washington, Toys for Tots and the Trooper O’Connell Foundation. iSoftStone understood that for many of these children, this might be the only gift they would receive during the holidays, and many of these children had never owned a bike of their own. The bike not only served as a fun recreational activity for the kids, but had practical uses in getting the children, who would normally walk, to and from school and to after school activities. By partnering with these organizations, iSoftStone was able to bring hope during the holidays and make a lasting difference in the lives of children across Washington State.
