CISCO Systems employees work MAGIC into volunteering!

As Director of Corporate and Volunteer Relations, I work with a lot of companies doing good in the community. CISCO by far exceeded my expectations with their “can do” attitude and big hearts!

They magically make things disappear…truckloads of trash, broken down washing machines, old wooden desks and much more…these are just a few things that a team of CISCO employees made “go away” at the request of the Sammy’s House Director, Isabel Huerta, while volunteering on Friday, November 9th as part of a Success By 6 Child Care Facility Improvement Project.


The true magic is how their magical powers worked throughout the day! The CISCO team built and installed wooden racks, set-up a teacher’s lounge, assembled shelves, installed a “gently used” washing machine and dryer, picked-up and delivered carpet, painted wooden cribs, moved around big bulking furniture and miscellaneous items, spread gravel in the playground, and even cleaned-up by sweeping and mopping floors before leaving at the end of the day!

At the end of the day the teary-eyed director and staff couldn’t believe their eyes! The CISCO team had definitely started the holiday season early by spreading the cheer!
