SHI, VMware join together to raise money for local charities

SHI and VMware supporting local charitiesThanksgiving is more than turkey, pie, and football; most importantly, Thanksgiving is a day to reflect and give thanks for the gifts and blessings we’ve received, and also to remember those who are less fortunate.

As a way to help those in need during the holiday, last week SHI and VMware partnered to raise money and secure goods for three worthy charities near SHI’s Central New Jersey headquarters: Summit Animal Rescue Association (SARA), a nonprofit animal rescue and placement organization; Elijah’s Promise, an organization that provides food to those in need, as well as education and job training in the food industry; and Resource Center of Somerset, a women’s shelter that provides help and hope for people affected by domestic abuse.

More than two dozen SHI and VMware employees traveled to New Jersey from around the country to spend a day shopping for and delivering supplies and donations designated for each organization.

Overall, SHI and VMware raised or donated over $21,000 among the three charities. We hope these donations will make the holidays a little bit brighter for those in need.

We couldn’t be prouder of the joint SHI-VMware team, and we thank everyone for their hard work and commitment to our community. We’re grateful to have such a dedicated and conscientious group of employees and partners, as well as customers. We wish a happy and healthy Thanksgiving to all!
