SignUpGenius Serves at Common Heart
Posted by: Kate White on 11/25/14 01:47 PM EST
There are a multitude of charities and nonprofits making significant impacts across the country. Last week, we got some hands-on experience serving with one here in our own backyard.
Knowing that there are so many local families in need this holiday season, we were honored to support Common Heart, a local food pantry in Indian Trail, NC, with their “Great Turkey Countdown.”
SignUpGenius staff volunteered time and manpower by stepping away from our desks for a bit to help sort and bag food for this year’s Thanksgiving meal deliveries.

Announcing our PinToWin Winner!

Thank you to those who entered our Fall Frenzy PinToWin Contest!
Congrats to our WINNER:
We asked Ivette to give us her best tip for staying organized during the busy fall season. She says, “For my family, Fall means back to school and fall sports so keeping an area for the boys to put their gloves, cleats, school shoes and jackets is imperative! We have a bench with a bin for each of them labeled with their name so they can put their stuff away!” What a GREAT idea for managing the fall frenzy!
