As part of The Partners Group year end volunteering program, every employee is given a day off to spend time volunteering for their non-profit of choice. Liz Farruggia, Employee Benefits Consultant at The Partners Group, spent the day volunteering with the Redmond School District employees at NeighborImpact. She worked with the other volunteers, helping to sort donated food into boxes that were distributed to local community members in need.

NeighborImpact is dedicated to empowering individuals and families to succeed and become engaged citizens in the community.
