At Hands-On Labs, our community is at the center of everything that we do. Throughout the year we partner with different local institutions to engage and give back. One organization that we have become very fond of is the Tennyson Center for Children. The Tennyson Center for Children is an organization that empowers children who have experienced abuse, neglect, and trauma to bravely and safely change their life’s story.
Hands-On Labs was honored with the opportunity to host multiple events at the Tennyson Center including an ice-cream social, Santa shop, taco night, game night, and many more. Our employee volunteers immediately fell in love with the children. As our CEO puts it, “This may be one of those situations that we get credit for making a difference when perhaps they are the ones making a difference in our lives.”
On Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 Hands-On Labs was awarded Outstanding Volunteer Group of the year at an appreciation brunch. This honor would not have been possible without all the coordination and extra effort that one of our rockstar employees put into it: Naomi Lowell. Naomi went above and beyond, taking it upon herself to make sure every event ran smoothly. She spent untold hours coordinating and making things at night and on the weekends. Hands-On Labs is extremely proud to have Naomi Lowell on our team!
In Naomi’s words, “Volunteering at the Tennyson Center has been an incredible experience for me, it feels good to do good! The HOL family is honored to receive the McKinney Award.”
