Westpak, Inc. Gives Back To Local Charities

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Westpak, Inc., a local product and package testing laboratory, recently donated time and money to over 20 local charitable organizations. Challenged with a mission of giving back, 25 of Westpak's San Jose-based team members donated over 350 hours of their own time assisting in a variety of methods from training service dogs to participating at Veggielution, a six acre non-profit local community farm.

Westpak's effort took place during an 8-week period in August / September as part of the firm's "Raise Your Hand" challenge. Team and individual challenges allowed the team members to compete to donate $2,500 to charities of their choice. Westpak's President and CEO, Herbert Schueneman, donated the most hours as a docent at the Point Sur State Historic Park and lighthouse.

Many people appreciated the volunteering challenge, including Westpak's Accounting Manager, Erica Santos. "As I started to get involved in my community, I enjoyed the time and what I was getting out of it. I ended up signing on as a permanent volunteer with Special Needs Resources. It's brought me joy seeing how happy these people are; I wonder why all of us can't be this happy! I guarantee if some of us would spend just an hour with a special needs person it would change your life," commented Erica.

Continuing with the volunteering spirit, Westpak, Inc. purchased, assembled and donated 20 bicycles and helmets to disadvantaged children this holiday season.

For more information, please contact Nora Crivello, Vice President, at 408-224-1300.
