On Sunday, November 18th, 2018 Team Banneker participated in Operation Holiday Cheer. It is an annual event organized by the Lt. Governor’s Office for Rhode Island servicemen and women. Operation Holiday Cheer was held at the RI National Guard Armory where over 300 volunteers prepared 300 boxes filled with several items to be enjoyed by RI National Guard men and women who are serving our country and will not be home for the holidays.
Banneker annually participates in this charitable event, and for this year 10 Team Banneker employees volunteered at the event on Sunday morning to fill the boxes to be shipped out. Banneker made a financial donation to assist with the cost of shipping the items to troops. Banneker also donated two pallets of items collected by a member of Team Banneker. Banneker wants to extend its thanks to Nate O’Donnell for requesting the items from a friend and neighbor and delivering them to the armory on Saturday morning, the day of the collection of items.
Banneker continues to show their appreciation for everyone who serves the United States each and every day. The Team cannot wait to partake in this wonderful event next year and the years to follow.
