During these unprecedented times, it’s easy (and understandable!) to find oneself overwhelmed with negativity, fear and worry. While it is, of course, important to remain vigilant and informed about the COVID-19 pandemic, it is equally as important, for the sake of our mental health, to continuously note the beautiful things happening all the time.
For this very reason, here at MedForms we are taking a moment to reflect back on the volunteer opportunities through which our employees have had the privilege to engage here in Nashville, Tennessee. We’re calling our efforts MedForms Gives Back. Take a peek! We hope it sparks a bit of joy.
*Note: Let us know if you have volunteer idea for us! We’d love to support efforts that are especially close to our clients’ hearts.
What our employees have to say about MedForms Gives Back:
“Having MedForms Gives Back is important to me because I want to be part of a company that cares about its community. I am very thankful that I have this opportunity to come alongside my coworkers and actively love the people around me, whether it’s through cooking a meal or writing a Christmas card.” – Victoria, Editor
“MedForms Gives Back serves as a reminder of the various needs that exist in our community. It brings awareness and exposure to new volunteering opportunities and the ability to choose the ones I want to be a part of makes it feel more personal.” – Kevin, Vice President of Information Technology
“One of MedForms’ business goals is to help make our clients’ and their patients’ lives easier with our product. I like to think that we have the same thought towards our MedForms Gives Back program: we are striving to make the lives of those in our community easier by offering our time and resources in various volunteer opportunities. It is easy to say you care or want to help, but MedForms puts those words into action and truly makes helping our community a priority.” – Katie, Editor
