It is always important during these warm summer months to take a moment to enjoy the sun with family and friends, eat some delicious BBQ, listen to great music and play a few lawn games. It is also important to celebrate a company’s hard work, while giving something back to the community that surrounds you.
Well that is exactly what Five9 did recently at the annual Five9 Summer Picnic! Five9 teams as well as their families ate grilled hotdogs and let loose on the softball field, in the bouncy house and on the rock-climbing wall. The Five9 teams also lined up for a chance to win a trip to Cabo San Lucas during the most intense water balloon toss I have ever seen!
But most importantly, the Five9 team including executives from customer care, sales and CEO Mike Burkland graciously volunteered for the dunk tank as part of a fundraiser to help raise money for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. To date, Five9 has helped deliver more than 16,000 meals to families in need in Contra Costa and Solano counties.
So at Five9, we hope everyone continues to enjoy all of the fun festivities of summer and finds a little time to lend a helping hand to the community around you.
