How Convergint colleagues helped

During the Convergint Social Responsibility Day, the Convergint Ireland team extended their support to Marymount Hospice. The team’s primary focus was to enhance the hospice’s outdoor spaces and create a soothing environment for patients and their families. Convergint Ireland team undertook the task of painting the exterior garden walls, adding a fresh, and vibrant touch to the surroundings.

The Convergint Ireland team was committed to making a positive impact on the Marymount Hospice community during the CSRD. Through their collective efforts in painting the garden walls and tidying up the garden, they aimed to contribute to the overall well-being and comfort of those who rely on the hospice’s care and support.

Not only did Convergint colleagues get to give back to the community, the day was enriching for Convergint colleagues. Convergint colleagues have become closer outside of their daily work and are looking forward to next year.
