Connection Cares: Together We Rise


As we continue to grow our Connection Cares initiative, members of our team of Public Sector Business Development Managers, along with their families, took part in a give-back event at their quarterly meeting at the end of August.

We teamed up with Cisco and Together We Rise, a non-profit organization that initiates programs for kids in foster care. Each member of our team built a “superhero” themed box complete with a pillowcase, power cuffs, and a mask to decorate, as well as registration cards to fill out to help each kid pick a super mission and a sidekick. Once completed, they mailed their kits back to Together We Rise to be distributed to children across the country—so they can become their own superhero!

Together We Rise encourages children to feel S.U.P.E.R. (Self-Assured, Uplifted, Proud, Empowered, and Resilient). Children in foster care sometimes struggle with their identity, and these superhero kits can help them build confidence and feel more comfortable with who they are. At Connection, we are thrilled to partner with them.
