May was a busy time here at the Hive with the Fun Committee at it again ... spreading fun and charitable deeds throughout the land (or at least the Bay Area). Our activities ranged from shoe-buying to ice cream eating as the Hive covered its quarterly goal of doing a little good, and also having a little fun. Enjoy the photo journal documenting the latest.
First, we helped out with the Sleep Train Foster Kids Shoe Drive by shopping for, and donating, $500 in shoes.
Check out all the loot we found at Payless Shoes!

A bit of background: For many foster children, a pair of new shoes helps provide a sense of normalcy during a turbulent time. To help, Sleep Train collects new shoes for foster children of all ages. Last year, this drive provided nearly 3,000 pairs of new shoes, over 22,000 clothing items and over 100,000 school supply items for foster children.
As for fun, yesterday came the Ice Cream Social, where the Hive celebrated all of our great accomplishments this past quarter with the team. It was good timing too - customers and partners who were here taking David Coleman’s training class this week at headquarters were also treated to a nice afternoon treat.

We can’t take credit for the creative spelling of daiquiri, but the non-dairy option was appreciated by some of our lactose-intolerant Hivers.
Of course we had all the Sundae fixin's!
Many Hivers went for it, adding a little bit of everything.
You don’t need to ask us twice. Apparently 2pm is the perfect time to throw an Ice Cream Social – because everybody showed up and crammed in the break room.
All gone! Well, almost. Some leftovers remained for those who wanted seconds (or thirds).
What’s next, you ask? It’s always something around here. Stay tuned.
