Must Read

Colleagues at Convergint, a global leader in service-based security-systems integration, set aside their daily tasks to donate time and resources to their communities as part of the 21st annual Convergint Social Responsibility Day.

The overall effort, which includes the office in McLean, resulted in a donation of more than $2.5 million in labor and equipment from Convergint colleagues, partners and families around the world.

Convergint’s efforts in McLean for Ketcham Elementary, Tyler Elementary School, 801 East Men’s Shelter and Housing, and Harriot Tubman Women’s Shelter included assembling more than 500 care packages filled with essential items and distributing them to students and those in need.

The packages contained items such as laundry detergent, personal-hygiene items, clothing, activity books and non-perishable food items.

A total of 35 local staffers participated in the effort, joining more than 7,700 Convergint personnel from around the world.

“Giving back to our communities is part of what makes Convergint’s culture so special,” said Jessica Phelps, a business-operations specialist with the firm. “We’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with these schools and shelters to make an impact locally, give back to those in need, and showcase what Convergint is all about.”

Convergint Social Responsibility Day was launched in 2002 to commemorate the founding of the firm and support the local communities where colleagues live and work. This year, colleagues in over 175 locations across the globe had the opportunity to donate their time, expertise and resources.
