Fall Service Day in Zilker Park with the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas
On Friday, October 21st, we had the special privilege of joining several other technology companies in the Austin area for a day of community service coordinated by the Entrepreneurs Foundation. The Entrepreneurs Foundation was founded by former entrepreneurs and venture capitalists helping to give local technology companies the opportunity to share their time and money with the surrounding community. We’ve previously partnered with the Entrepreneurs Foundation in their efforts to help restore low-income elementary schools this past May and in their bowling tournament that benefited Austin Child Protective Services earlier this year.
For the fall service day, Entrepreneurs Foundation collaborated with the Austin Police Department (APD), bringing together community and law enforcement to clean up Zilker Park and improve community relations. The AlertMedia team was assigned to the Botanical Garden to help with some projects throughout the park. The Botanical Garden was founded in 1955 to promote a love of gardening and a natural education resource for the citizens of Austin.
Being able to contribute to the Austin community that has done so much for technology companies was truly rewarding, and working with APD was an enlightening experience. We look forward to future opportunities to give back to the Austin community in any way we can, and collaborating with Entrepreneurs Foundation in their impactful and thoughtful events benefitting the Austin community.
