Infoverity Summer Interns Collect 1281 Articles of Clothing for The Open Shelter

The 2019 Summer Interns at Infoverity’s global headquarters in Dublin, OH have wrapped up the Second Annual Infoverity Summer Intern Service Project, collecting 1281 articles of clothing in a 7 week project to benefit The Open Shelter, an Advocacy Center & Day Services Shelter for homeless and marginally housed people in Central Ohio.

The interns were asked to collaborate on a service project that would benefit the community. The charity, terms, and project execution were up to them.  They created a competition among Infoverity’s different practices, with top contributing practices winning a donation to the charity of their choice.  Each week had a different theme, and items following that theme were worth double points. The interns in Infoverity’s Managed Services Group built an internal website using a node.js JavaScript framework. The website was updated in real time according to modifications made on the tracking sheet, using a Google API. The website was integral to the competitive aspect of the drive and the live updates were a great motivator.

The two practices with the highest contributions donated their winnings to the charity of their choice:

  • 1st place: Corporate  – $400 prize donated to The Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund
  • 2nd place: Product Solutions Group  – $100 prize donated to The Open Shelter

Lisa Corbett was the top contributor from Corporate and Dominic Spain was the top contributor from the Product Solutions Group.
