Global Shop Solutions, an international developer of ERP software for the manufacturing industry, supported two local non-profits to change the lives of those who need it most. With a long history of supporting the community, Global Shop Solutions partnered with Hope’s Path, an organization that uses a faith-based community approach to direct foster youth towards confident and sustainable independence, and with the Montgomery County Women’s Center (MCWC), a center that provides resources, counseling, housing and more to women and children who have suffered physical or sexual abuse.
As part of its annual team building week, the nearly 100 employees of the Global Shop Solutions’ Customer Services Team broke into several groups to improve the functionality of at the facilities at MCWC and Hope’s Path. The group at Hope’s Path organized the library and food pantry, cleaned out and organized the resource room, hung blinds, and more.
“Global Shop Solutions is about loving, serving, and caring for the communities we live in around the world,” says Nick Knight, Director of Customer Services for Global Shop Solutions. “The projects we were involved in at MCWC and Hope’s Path represent the spirit of Global Shop Solutions. It’s a special honor to be a part of this company.”
Servitude Is in Their Nature
For more than 40 years, Global Shop Solutions has engaged in ongoing efforts to support local service projects. Recent charities and service projects company personnel have participated in include Toys for Tots, Sunshine Spaces, feeding and taking care of the homeless in Montgomery County, and In the Pink, a charity benefit to support cancer survivors.
“Global Shop Solutions considers it a great honor to work side by side with Hope’s Path and MCWC. Giving back to the community is one of the highlights of the year for Global Shop Solutions,” says CEO & President Dusty Alexander.
Dusty and his father Dick Alexander, Founder and Chairman of the Board, lead the “giving back” initiative by creating an atmosphere of caring and sharing of our time and resources and expressing its importance to the entire Global Shop Solutions employee base.
