Bags employees love a challenge. From managing technology systems for operations nationwide, to promoting the range of services we offer, to delivering luggage to customers coast to coast as a smart alternative to shipping luggage, our workforce of 4000 works hard to make travel easier every day. And when it comes to giving for others, employees turned out in kind to lend a helping hand at Orlando’s Charity Challenge XXIX.
The event, now in its 29th year, was held May 17 at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. Charity Challenge began as a four-team backyard event and has grown into a multi-media extravaganza with nearly 100 teams raising nearly $5 million for local charities.
The event allowed Bags Inc. to be a part of the Central Florida community while raising much-needed funds for various charities. This year, Bags raised money for Nathaniel’s Hope, dedicated to sharing hope with kids with special needs and their families. We work with Nathaniel’s Hope throughout the year, and welcomed the opporutunity to once again bring awareness to this amazing organization.
The Bags Badgers came in 7th overall and can’t wait for next year’s competition! The real reward was gathering with friends, family, and coworkers to raise money for those in need. See you next year!
