F5 colleagues volunteer with families needing shelter and work

 January 28, 2020

Colleagues working at F5 Networks, including CEO François Locoh-Donoh and his family, volunteered their time at the United Way of King County Family Resource Exchange.

The F5 team members helped support over 1,000 people in need in King County, Washington, in the United States.

Helping people find their way

United Way of King County hosts eight Family Resource Exchange events each year. In addition to connecting families to housing and jobs, the service helps connect people to public benefits for families, child care resources, haircuts, new shoes and a food bank.

In King County, it is believed there are hundreds of families living in their cars, staying in emergency shelters and couch surfing each night. United Way and its partners bring one-stop services to these families to help them get back on their feet.

One of many giving-back activities at F5 

Making a positive impact is part of F5's company culture and helping United Way of King County is one of many projects F5 employees have got involved with that make a difference to others.

Further recent community activities at F5 include packing lunches for the Hunger Intervention Program, taking part in a cycling fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and partnering with Home Base and Streets to Home programs to help reduce homelessness.

F5 employees also take part in a Giving Tuesday - an initiative pledging support for local causes and F5ers are photographed with signs displaying the specific names of the organizations they support..

F5 Networks encourages employees to give back to the community in addition to enjoying great opportunities at work.
