With Thanksgiving around the corner, the team at CADimensions has a lot to be thankful for: a dynamic staff, wonderful partners in SOLIDWORKS and Stratasys, and the best customers! As we approach the end of the year, November is the perfect time to reflect on how much we have to be grateful for, and strive to give back. This year, CADimensions is giving back in two ways, which I’m coining “Food and Fuzz”.

After the overwhelming success last year, the team is participating in the 2nd annual CADLIFE Food Drive.  Our goal is to donate 600 pieces of non-perishable canned goods and, at the end of the month, all donated food will be delivered to a food bank local to that office.  As an added bonus, if we hit our goal, CADimensions corporate will be donating $1 for each item collected.  So, if you are coming by an office for training, or just happen to be driving by, we welcome you to help out with a wonderful cause.

Albany, NY – Hope 7 Community Center

Buffalo, NY – Food Bank of WNY

Pittsburgh, PA – North Way of Wexford

Rochester, NY – St. Peter’s Kitchen and Brockport Food Link

Syracuse, NY – Food Bank of CNY

So, what’s the Fuzz all about??

The second campaign the team is participating in this month is “No Shave November”, which is an initiative to raise awareness for men’s and women’s health.  Most of the men in CADimensions will start to look pretty scruffy, a couple interns say they stopped shaving but no one can tell, and the women of the office have nominated loved ones to participate.  For every person that participates in this initiative, CADimensions corporate will make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (https://www.pcf.org/c/donate/).  On December 1st, after many itchy neck weeks, the company will vote for two champions: The Best/Most Creative Mustache and the Worst/Most Creepy Mustache.

During the next couple weeks, please forgive some of our appearances, but please know, you are welcome to participate along with the CADimensions family.  We are so thankful for the opportunity to help out the community, while having some fun in the process.

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
