With local sponsorships and paid time off for community service, Redmond has always provided opportunities for us to make a difference in our world. As technology shrinks the world around us, Redmond’s influence can expand like never before, making humanitarian trips like the Costa Rican wheelchair distributions possible. Knowing that trips like these change our lives as much as the lives of the people we serve, Redmond plans to provide more opportunities to its associates in the future.
Who can participate?
Humanitarian trips are offered to all full-time associates and their spouse or partner. When more people want to attend than room allows, drawings are held to be sure we have a diverse group of people for each trip.
What can you expect?
Redmond associates interested in humanitarian trips will need to contribute and raise funds. Investing in the experience adds more meaning to the trip and changes the way we view the experience, which is actually more important than the financial contribution we make. (Some associates have established company savings accounts so money is available when opportunities come up. Scott Murdock can help you establish an account.) You’ll also need to budget vacation time to use for any trips.
