Convergent Mobile Completes Ambitious Nicaraguan Volunteer Effort with Run For Food International
Convergent Mobile, a leading provider of enterprise level mobile-based solutions, teamed up with Liberty Tax Service to participate in the 2015 Run For Food International volunteer effort in Nicaragua. The program provides ongoing food donations to feeding centers throughout Nicaragua.
Convergent Mobile's senior management, select employees and family members from around the nation gathered in Nicaragua for a week of work in a variety of capacities throughout the western region of the country. Leading the trip was Chuck Lovelace, president of the charity and Vice President of ACA at Liberty Tax.
The Convergent team travelled to four feeding centers, distributing food, working in kitchens, and providing general support for the children of these remote villages. The company also donated and distributed toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, bowls, plates, cups and soccer balls in each village.
"At Convergent Mobile, service is more than a simple responsibility to our clients -- it's the focus of everything we do and it's what sets us apart from others," said Mickey Breen, Convergent Mobile's CEO. "Having the opportunity to participate this year has been a high point for us both personally and professionally. Krishna Pillai, COO stated, We are committed to partnering with our clients on many levels and this service venture has been one of the most satisfying.
