In February, during a trip to Mexico’s beautiful Fairmont Mayakoba in Play del Carmen, CornerStone Staffing colleagues packed with a purpose. What was their purpose? To make an impact on the community they were visiting with a meaningful contribution.
CornerStone Staffing worked with the Pack for a Purpose organization and identified two groups they wanted to make donations to: “Save the Children in the Riviera Maya” and the “Playa Animal Rescue”.
CornerStone Staffing received donations from colleagues and local retail stores. They also asked for discounts from some of their vendors to help them stretch their resources. All items were paced in 7 large duffle bags weighing in at 50 lbs each. The airline donated some of the cost associated with shipping the duffle bags, thanks to an airline employee that was on the trip.
Items that were donated to “Playa Animal Rescue” included toys, bowls, collars, leashes, bedding, grooming supplies and non-beef treats. Beef treats were also donated but did not make it through the Cancun Airport.
Items that were donated to “Save the Children in the Riviera Maya” included school supplies, games, crayons, pens and pencils.
CornerStone Staffing would like to thank Jan and Mauricio from Playa Animal Rescue for attending their reception at the Fairmont Mayakoba to accept the donations. Playa Animal Rescue is doing great things to help the stray dogs of the Mayan Riviera and CornerStone is so thankful to be able to help in some small way.
This is definitely an experience that the colleagues of CornerStone Staffing will always remember! They are looking forward to their next colleague trip where they can “Pack for Purpose”.
