Day of Caring

Join us for a XWHQ all-employee day of caring on Thursday, June 13th from 1pm-5pm at Open Door Shelter in South Norwalk. Open Door Shelter serves clientele in our area by providing food, shelter, clothing, and social services to members of our community in need. We will lend a helping hand to them on the 13th with gardening, painting, meal prep, street clean up and more.

The shelter operates primarily on private donations with little to no funding coming from public sectors. The Xerox Community Involvement Program will be donating $500 to the shelter. In conjunction with the day of caring, we will host a short-term drive to collect donations of food items and cleaning supplies. Open Door mentioned that they are specifically in need of the following:

  • Paper towels

  • Laundry Detergent

  • Clorox Cleaner/Fantastik

  • Dish Soap

  • Sponges

  • Trash bags

You can drop off items in the sixth floor café area any time.

Xerox provides each employee one day of paid time off to volunteer per calendar year. Ensure you receive manager approval before beginning any volunteer activity during work hours.

Please note: Carpooling is encouraged due to limited parking at the shelter. Hope to see everyone there!
