SendTech team tutor students online

By Juanita Roesler

In partnership with United Way, our Sending Technology Solutions Call Center team in Spokane, Washington, have been volunteering once a week to read to kids in our community. It is pioneering the first Vello United Way campaign in the Spokane school district.

“I have only had the opportunity to read to a few students, but each time I do, it makes my whole day better.   Pitney Bowes has always been a company that supports our community and  as an employee of over 20 years I really appreciate that.” Jennifer Lindsey, Inside Sales Call Handler

“I love that I get to give back – giving a student/child the opportunity to have a reading coach, the experience, somebody to talk to and somebody to count on each week.” Trisha Lopez, ISS Sales Director

“My Vello sessions are the highlight of my week. I signed up to work with the same student every week. It is such a rewarding feeling to be spending time with an eager mind.” Christine Turner, Supply Sales Support Specialist

Vello is the innovative, 1:1 tutoring program from United Way that matches tutor teams with local classrooms for guided reading support. It mobilizes passionate professionals to tutor students in reading through a safe and secure digital setting. Together, students and tutors read e-books using super simple screen sharing and audio.

“I find this very rewarding because I’m given the opportunity to make a positive impact on a child’s life in my community and help contribute to his success.” Jeff Muma, ISS Sales Manager

This program aligns with PB’s corporate philanthropy of Dedication to Education, which has the goal of increasing and enhancing opportunities for local youth. The commitment is only 30 minutes a week during the school year and doesn’t require leaving the office. The team looks forward to continuing the partnership and watching these kids develop. At the conclusion of the school year, the employees and students will meet to celebrate.

“This has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done, listening to this little soul develop her reading skills week over week.” – Leslie Paine, NIIT/PB Training Manager
