Today during SAP Concur’s Quarterly Company Meeting, Mike Eberhard and I had the honor of surprising Marty Hoffman, executive director of Mary’s Place, with a $25,000 donation in support of their No Child Sleeps Outside campaign. By helping provide safety and shelter to the underserved youth of Seattle, Mary’s Place allows children to focus their efforts towards obtaining a quality education.
At SAP Concur, we work to help the world run better and improve peoples’ lives. One important component of this mission is our commitment to corporate social responsibility; working to positively impact our local and global communities. Our focus at SAP Concur is made up of three pillars: growing STEM education, creating access to quality education, and supporting girls and young women in tech and leadership.
During the holiday season we reflect on the importance of our community and those who need community the most. Mary’s Place, located in the Seattle area, has the mission to support their local community by empowering homeless women, children and families to reclaim their lives.
SAP Concur has had a long history of community outreach with Mary’s Place, hosting volunteer projects for employees and interns, holiday gift giving, and collection drives. Last year my son and I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Mary’s Place Holly Jolly Party and we look forward to continuing our support of events and activities just like this. Their tireless efforts to bring shelter, food and education to our most vulnerable community members makes Mary’s Place such an incredible organization.
We are incredibly thankful to work with the fantastic employees and families at Mary’s Place and look forward to continuing our relationship in the future. At SAP Concur we are excited to continue our efforts to give back to local communities and grow our global impact.
