The other day we learned about how Conductor donated backpacks to underprivileged schoolchildren in New York City. I asked for more stories of how the search community is giving back.
Well, I'm happy to report that I was promptly emailed by Bazaarvoice chiming in on how, they too, donated backpacks to kids!
Bazaarvoice donated 200 backpacks to Communities in Schools, a dropout prevention organization in Central Texas. The drive was organized by the Entrepreneur's Foundation of Central Texas. There's a picture of the Bazaarvoice team on the EFCT's Facebook page. Employees were allowed to take time off of work to give back to the community.
Great job, Bazaarvoice!
Keep 'em coming folks! Got a story to share about how search is giving back to the community? Send me a message and let me know!
