Trend Micro teams worldwide spend their days developing tools to help organizations fight cybercrime. It’s a big job with the aim of achieving our mission of making the world safe for exchanging digital information. But what do Trenders do when they’re not fighting cybercriminals?
Most recently, more than 400 Trenders from 10 countries gathered in Dallas to share their time with Dallas Independent School District students. With coordination support from the Volunteer Center of North Texas, buses full of Trenders eagerly marched into five schools in DISD (Stevens Park Elementary School, Quintanilla Middle School, Dallas Environmental Science Academy, George Washington Carver Elementary School, C.F. Carr Elementary) to perform reading activities with students; build picnic tables, tree benches and book cases; assemble student study aid kits; and donate a total of $30,000.00 for school supplies.
From the first moments on each campus, Trenders felt the warm welcome of students and staff. Beautifully-drawn welcome banners, carefully-crafted thank you cards and cheerful smiles were all signs of the great experience to come.
After the picnic tables were built, book shelves stocked, and students headed home after a full day, Trenders left with a renewed sense of commitment to serving their community and to their mission of keeping the world safe for a new generation.
