How Our Team is Helping Their Local Communities During COVID-19
Medical Face Masks
Microdesk’s Assistant Director of Enterprise Asset Management Shyla Vellal and her family used their technical design skills to 3D print COVID-19 face masks. Filters can be easily replaced, each part can be cleaned using disinfectant, and all components are biodegradable making these ideal for frontline and essential workers. 3D files and materials were made available by Lowell Makes, a non-profit shared lab and workshop open to the community.
Volunteering in Mumbai
After returning home in March to Mumbai, India for a family emergency, AECO Implementation Specialist Niranjan Prabhu was unable to return to the U.S. due to travel restrictions. He spent his time in India volunteering with a local pharmacy, the National Chemist, and caring for stray cats, dogs, and crows. He found the experience of helping homeless animals so rewarding that his family adopted two kittens upon their return to the U.S. Read his full story here.
Our contributions also include sponsoring clients and employees, volunteering, and collaboration with other organizations.
