Multiband Associates Give Back: The Lexington Office

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

This is a picture of the ops manager and one of the associates from the Lexington Office. We had an Associate Appreciation Day – our Ops and the General Manager cooked huge pots of chili. When our appreciation day was over, we called a local soup kitchen and had them pick up the remaining 5 gallon container of chili.  Not only did the chili keep us warm but it also warmed our spirits to know that a few more families would not go hungry that night!

Chris Adams, of Minnetonka, MN, is in her 7th year of being a Leader for the Girl Scouts – what can you do to give back?

We’ve all heard of the Girl Scouts, but Chris Adams considers herself one of the lucky few who get to know the organization well. “Sometimes, I wonder who’s getting the most benefit – me or the girls,” Adams expresses about her experiences as a Girl Scout Leader.

Chris started being a Leader 7 years ago when her daughter was interested in joining but there were no Leaders in her area. So she stepped in, and now she couldn’t imagine not being a part of the organization. “Girls learn about being empowered and see how they affect their communities and the world around them, teaching to be people of courage, confidence and character; I just can’t see myself giving it up!”

“Every year for the past 20 years, the owner of the Windmill Restaurant in Concord, New Hampshire, gives out totally free turkey dinners to those in need on Thanksgiving Day. This year, he gave out about 1,000 meals, including fixings and desert. I volunteered, along with several others, to deliver meals around the community to those elderly and disabled people that could not leave their homes – it was a humbling experience. To read more about this wonderful Thanksgiving Day event, go to  http://www.wmur.com/news/nh-news/Concord-restaurant-owner-gives-back-on-Thanksgiving/-/9857858/17524158/-/5vwns0z/-/index.html.

With the upcoming holiday season, now is a great time for my fellow Multiband coworkers to volunteer in some way to help others in their own communities. While donating money or items to a good cause is certainly a commendable contribution, nothing can compare to the donation of your time to someone in need. As we approach this holiday season, I hope we will all find ways to make a difference by giving back.”

Multiband’s Holiday Cookbook: Roasties by Carly Rygwalski – Minneapolis Office

Roasties

These are deliciously crispy potatoes, great with any meal!

Ingredients

  • Potatoes
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Flour
  • Sea Salt

Pour vegetable oil into a metal pan, about ¼” deep. Preheat your oven to 450F, and put the oil-filled pan into the oven for about 10-15 minutes, until the oil is hot.

Peel as many potatoes as you would like to eat; cut them into small cubes (about 1” x 1” x 1”). Parboil the potatoes – until the cubes are soft enough to easily insert a fork, but not break the potato apart when you insert the fork.

Pour cooked potato cubes into a bowl. Toss on flour, about 1 T at a time, until the potatoes are coated. Add sea salt to taste.

Put potatoes into hot oil (be very careful about dropping them in – they will sizzle a bit) and put into the oven. Cook for 10 minutes – remove the potatoes and flip them over in the oil. Cook for 10 more minutes.

Remove from the oven and place on a plate covered with paper towel (to remove some of the grease). Serve warm, and enjoy!

Multiband Associates Give Back… Dave Katz – Boston North Market

Dear Mr. Glatz,

I am honored to be recognize as an “Elite Technician” and for the award of the “Richard Petty NASCAR Driving Experience.”  Thank you.

I believe that being an Elite Technician is not an individual effort. While I do work in the field alone, I depend on the efforts of many to do my job successfully. Dispatchers, IVR & Work Order Change personnel, trainers, my supervisor, warehouse workers, the office staff and my fellow technicians support me when I am on-site. Sure, things like spending more time with the customer on “customer education” is helpful, but it’s really a team effort that makes our customers’ satisfaction possible.

I’m not much into race cars and I think that one of our co-workers would enjoy the “driving experience” more.  I was wondering if we could raffle off that experience among my fellow technicians and donate the proceeds to charity. It would mean more to me to see this benefit a good cause… and I have one in mind. On my days off I volunteer at “Guiding Eyes for the Blind” (in Nashua) training puppies that will eventually become service dogs. I can tell you of no greater personal satisfaction in my life than seeing the contribution that one of these dogs makes to the life of someone less fortunate.

I am attaching an article on my work with service dogs and a link where you can see what one of the dogs I trained (“Anita”) does now for children with cancer at the Ronald McDonald House in Jacksonville Florida: http://www.rmhjax.org/our-dog-anita

I would greatly appreciate it if you could find a way to make this possible.  Thanks.

Regards,

Dave Katz
