Local Tech & Marketing Company Comes Together to Support Feeding South Florida

PeakActivity Led a Food & Fund Drive to Support Feeding South Florida, Raising $1,450 and Collecting Non-Perishable Donations

BOYNTON BEACH, FL, DECEMBER 2020 – ‘Tis the season for giving at South Florida digital technology and marketing company PeakActivity. This year the community involvement and philanthropic arm of PeakActivity, PeakCares, came together to organize a Food & Fund Drive to support Feeding South Florida. The company, despite working remotely due to COVID-19, was able to raise $1,450 and collect non-perishable donations to help support this organization’s mission to end hunger in South Florida.  

Now more than ever, organizations like Feeding South Florida need our help. Due to COVID-19, high unemployment, and a general sense of uncertainty, food insecurity is on the rise. The Food & Fund Drive supported the community in three ways; food donations to be given to Feeding South Florida, monetary donations, and the encouragement for their employees to bring non-perishables to their local food bank as some employees aren’t local to South Florida. 

“We are so grateful to work for a company that puts such an emphasis on showing up and giving back to our local communities, and for all of the support shown by our Peaksters during this holiday season,” noted Alex Shapiro, who co-leads the PeakCares team. Since the team’s inception in 2018, they’ve been a part of various fundraising efforts which have included fundraising over $2,500 for the American Heart Association. PeakActivity is humbled by their employee’s generosity and ability to come together to serve our community.

Peak Cares: Supporting the American Heart Association

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, PeakActivity is raising funds and awareness for The American Heart Association

Peak Cares

To ensure that philanthropy remains at the heart of PeakActivity’s culture and organizational structure, we established Peak Cares.

Through Peak Cares, we help local organizations with marketing and communication strategies, pro bono software development services, and company-wide Service Days that keep us engaged with our community in meaningful ways. 

The American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, and Kids in Distress are just a few organizations that PeakActivity frequently supports.

This month, Peak Cares is once again partnering with the American Heart Association in their mission to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. 

Why? Because heart disease continues to rank as the leading cause of death worldwide. And yet, an estimated 80% of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, are preventable. 

We know that the AHA is doing amazing work in advocacy, education, and research, and we want to help!

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $5,000 for the AHA while supporting their heart-healthy initiatives.

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is the nation’s largest and oldest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. 

Their overall mission is to be a relentless force that creates a world of longer, healthier lives. 

More specifically, the AHA’s 2020 Impact Goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% and reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%, all by the year 2020.

So far (since February 2018), the AHA has reduced the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease by 15% and stroke by 14.3%. 

Donations to the American Heart Association help to fund innovative research, advocacy, and patient support. 

Additionally, donated funds contribute to more effective treatments, first-responder training, and educational programs that empower our families and communities to live heart-healthy.

Walk With Us

We’re getting together to raise funds, celebrate survivors and have fun along the way at the 2020 Broward Heart Walk on Sunday, March 15.

Want to support the AHA with us?

You can help the PeakActivity team reach our fundraising goal by walking with us or donating to the cause. 

Your contribution will help us save and improve the lives of others through research, education, and emergency care.

This is not just another finish line. It’s a movement for the health and well-being of us all. We hope you’ll join us!

Our Veterans: an Honor and Privilege to the PeakActivity Family

Veterans Day, originating as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, was celebrated for the first time on the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution for an annual observance. However, Veterans Day was not officially recognized as a national holiday until the beginning of 1938.

Veterans Day originated and is still observed today as a day to honor and respect the men and women who dedicated their lives and made unbelievable sacrifices to fight for the freedom of America, this beautiful country we call home.

At PeakActivity, we are very proud of our veterans and the sacrifices they made for our country. We are honored that they chose to become part of the PeakActivity family after dedicating their time to the service of our country. Like all veterans, they have helped mold and shape America into its current glory, and we are privileged to have them as part of our team.

This Veterans Day PeakActivity is honored to recognize our team members that served our country.

Kim Nalepka, our Social Commerce Specialist, dedicated 12 years of her life to service in the Marine Corps. During her time in the Marines, she was stationed in North Carolina and had 5 active tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan.

The military provided experiences that shaped Kim to be the strong, hard-working, and confident person she is today.

“My military experience instilled courage and self-confidence to overcome fear in the face of adversity and to accomplish goals in stressful environments. It gave me the opportunity to build strong leadership, critical thinking, and decision-making skills during combat situations. The way my military experience affects my life today is understanding the importance of teamwork and understanding people and their personalities, to be able to work through complex situations and resolve conflict. Solid leadership, good judgment, and integrity are necessary to build a strong foundation for any company or business.” – Kim Nalepka

Mathew Vermilyer, our A/B Testing and Optimization Lead, is originally from Chicago, Illinois, where he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at the age of 18. He served as an Ordnance Technician from 2009 to 2013, with one tour to Afghanistan in 2011.

“The military provided me with some of the most impactful years of my life. I was molded by my experiences, changing my outlook on hard work and dedication. The military taught me the true meaning of a team and inspired me to lead by taking ownership. I am grateful for my time spent in the military, and while challenging, I would not change a single moment”. – Mathew Vermilyer

Joey Collins, a full-stack engineer, devoted four years of his life to service in the army. During his time in the service, he was stationed in Fort Bragg, NC as a part of the 82nd Airborne division.

“During my time in the Army, as part of the 82nd Airborne Division, I jumped out of more planes than I landed. My experiences were life-changing and I have been forever impacted by the time that I served our country. I went into the Army as an introvert, and during my time of service, quickly became an extrovert. With a job of interrogator, it is almost impossible to be shy. The time that I spent in the Army gave me the confidence to chase after everything I have ever wanted out of this life. I have been forever changed and I am very grateful.” – Joey Collins

We, at PeakActivity, are honored to have Kim, Joey, and Mathew on our team. We are very proud of the time they spent serving our country. As we continue to grow our team, we would be honored to add more veterans to the PeakActivity family.

On this Veterans Day, we want to thank all of the veterans who served our country. We are truly grateful for the sacrifices you made during your time of service.
