SignUpGenius Serves at Loaves and Fishes

signupgenius staff servingLast week, the SignUpGenius team took a break from our computers to spend time serving at Loaves and Fishes, a ministry that has over 20 food pantries in our hometown of Charlotte, NC. The organization provides a week's worth of nutritious groceries to individuals and families in a short-term crisis, and last year alone they served 78,602 people. 

During our lunch hour, 12 of our team members helped to sort over 175 boxes containing food and household items. Sorting the items into categories helps the Loaves and Fishes staff stock and distribute goods in a nutritionally balanced way to those in need. 

If you’d like to learn more about SignUpGenius and the organizations that we support throughout the year, please visit our Giving Back page.

boy and girl reading“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss wasn’t the only one who valued the lessons learned through reading. 

Seuss’s writing continues to inspire and motivate readers of all ages, and Read Across America is a wonderful time to honor his birthday with some fun. Check out the resources we’ve pulled out of our red and white striped hats just for you! 

If you’re as excited as we are about making a difference in the lives of young readers, be sure to enter our School Library Makeover, where one lucky school will win $5000!

Will you be posting who won the Library makeover? We had to move our Literacy night with the Doctor Suess theme to March 19th due to ice and snow. We will be so encouraged now for a month by Doctor Suess. I don't know if anyone voted for my school but me but if I would love to post pictures of the school being so decorated if that is okay. We have had so much fun. The kids have been so creative.

Though getting media coverage is swell, it’s the words from our users that really hit home. Here’s what others have had to share lately: 

"Wow, this site is amazing! I've used it for a few years but this year we upgraded to Pro and it has been a game changer for our school! Being able to have that summary page with all the school sign ups together and being able to have multiple admins is well worth the cost of the yearly membership. Each time I think it would be nice to have this feature or that feature, I find that you are already way ahead of me. Thank you so much for all you do!!!” - St Joseph’s Catholic School, Moorhead, MN 

I am a HUGE fan. I am a second career nurse in northern Virginia at a large teaching hospital where I work on the labor unit with 120 fabulous coworkers. The nurses have to "sign up" for 8 hours of "call" each schedule of 4 weeks. After 2 months of getting the staff prepared mentally for "online call" I'm pleased to say our maiden voyage was a huge success...peace reigned on the west side where the paper sign up used to be. All 84 nurses signed up within 24 hours - unheard of. Thanks SUG. I'm a fan forever.” - Max Engler, Burke, VA 

Thanks for using SignUpGenius! Have something to share? Drop us a line.
