Microsoft’s annual employee GIVE Campaign is going on now during the month of October!

Costume Sorting with Microsoft

Princesses, cowboys, and superhero’s were just a few of the 225 costumes put together by our Microsoft volunteers last week.

On Friday, our team at EBC loaded up bins full of costume pieces and brought them up to the Redmond Microsoft campus to have volunteers sort through and put together complete costumes for distribution by our partners to kids who’s families cannot afford them this Halloween.

Staged outside on the patio of the cafeteria were 7 tables piled high with costume pieces and 2 tables piled with accessories.  We then left it up to our volunteer’s imagination to put together full costumes according to gender (both specific and gender neutral), size, and theme.  The team of about 15 volunteers assemble all sorts of fun costumes and made sure they were properly accessorized.  No princess costume is complete without a crown.
