Habitat for Humanity February 2017 – This month, Uniquifers dedicated their community service to the Playhouse Program through Habitat for Humanity. Life-sized children’s playhouses were constructed to be given to a community charity or family. Uniquifers participated in the Playhouse Prep Day, where we cut out the playhouse pieces, machined the windows and doors, and base painted the pieces of the playhouse. We hope the children have as much fun with these playhouses as we did preparing them!
Sacred Heart Community Services October 2016 -This month’s community service was dedicated to Sacred Heart Community Service. Uniquifers participated in two shifts. The first shift was at the Clothes Closet, where we sorted out several crates of clothes from generous donors in our community. A few of us were also able to help out on the floor of the Clothes Closet as we assisted families with their clothes selection. The second shift included spreading the word to the SHCS’s neighborhood community regarding upcoming holiday events in November and December. It is truly incredible to see how many families SHCS has helped through their assistance with food, clothing, and housing
Martha’s Soup Kitchen September 2016 – What better way to start off the autumn season than to volunteer at Martha’s Kitchen. This month, we served hot meals and drinks to approximately 200-300 hungry men, women, and children locally in San Jose. While we were cleaning up towards the end of the meal, it was an extremely rewarding experience knowing that they have eaten a warm and balanced meal and they are a little less hungry. A huge thanks goes to the group of Uniquifiers who have decided to take some time out of their busy schedule to help serve food to the hungry poor in our society. We are truly fortunate to have a place like Martha’s Kitchen.
Second Harvest Food Bank August 2016 – This month, a group of Uniquifers decided to give back to the community by volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank at the Cypress location in San Jose. The fruit of the day was PLUM! It was a two hour shift of boxing 25 pound boxes of plums. Thank you to the volunteers who took time out of their busy schedule to help sort food at the warehouse, and to those who donated canned items to the food bank! Let’s help families become a little less hungry
4th of July Company BBQ July 2016 – What better way to kick off the 4th of July weekend than to celebrate with a company BBQ. This year, Uniquifers headed outside to enjoy the sunshine and delicious food, including fresh grilled corn, hot dogs, chicken wings, and gourmet burgers! While some team members relaxed, others were more competitive and competed in a relay race, which include potato sack race, hula hoop contest, egg run, and 4 legged race. The champions not only dominated the relay race, but they also got to enjoy refreshing drinks with their Jamba Juice gift cards.
Uniquify Holiday Party December 2013 – This year Uniquify headed to San Francisco for it’s annual holiday party. Uniquifiers enjoyed a night at trendy and upscale Infusion Nightclub. Following a delicious catered dinner, Uniquify team members participated in several holiday themed contests and played their luck in several raffles. Prizes ranged from iPads, GoPros to San Jose Sharks hockey game tickets. There was a henna tattoo artist available, as well as a photo booth complete with props. The well deserved celebratory night marked a perfect end to another successful year.
American Red Cross Blood Drive September 2013 – Uniquify recently partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive at our headquarters in San Jose, CA. Throughout the day Uniquify team members visited the Red Cross bus stationed in our parking lot to donate blood (and grab a cupcake or 2!). We were able to collectively donate 21 units for the American Red Cross. These units will go towards helping the millions of patients in need. Way to go guys! A big thank you to the Red Cross for the smooth process!
