While this statement is certainly true, Baisch Engineering ensures our team members also have the time!
As part of our benefit package, all employees get Volunteer Time Off. These hours are available annually to allow our team members to volunteer for not-for-profit organizations.
This month, some Baisch team members took time on a Friday morning to volunteer at Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. After a short training session, we got to work! Alongside volunteers from other organizations, we sorted and packaged over 7,500 lbs of donated food which resulted in approximately 6,200 meals in two hours. What a great way to spend a few hours on a Friday morning.
Collin Osenroth, Civil/Structural Engineer, shares, “I knew it was a good opportunity to give back to the community and help those less fortunate.” The time at Feeding America was enlightening to many team members. Corey Wiedemann, Civil/Structural Drafter, comments, “Seeing what was all involved in separating the incoming food and placing them into boxes for distribution was interesting to me.” While Peggy Heling, Process Control Drafter, said, “I was amazed at how many places they service. I did enjoy the hands-on work.”
Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin works with pantries and meal sites to serve more than half a million people in Wisconsin a year. Currently, one in eight people do not know where their next meal is coming from. For more information, please see Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.
