Indianapolis-based software company Upper Hand has launched a community outreach program dedicated to volunteerism and philanthropy in the city and sports and fitness industry.
The company says its Helping Hands Initiative is an avenue to get involved in the community and expand its impact beyond the office.
Upper Hand specializes in sports and fitness management software used by fitness studios and sports training academies for client payment, scheduling and memberships.
The company says as Indianapolis continues to battle the long-term effects of the coronavirus, it remains committed to supporting the Back Downtown movement to “restore vibrancy to the city” through the organization of team-wide volunteer opportunities.
“We are eager to make an impact in our community and provide an outlet for our team to get involved,” says Courtney Kerr, spokesperson for Upper Hand. “So often, the biggest barrier to entry is knowing where to start, so we are excited to bring opportunities to the team that will eliminate those challenges and allow us to share the spirit and energy of Upper Hand with others.”
Upper Hand has formed a committee to spearhead company outreach opportunities. The causes and issues employees are most passionate about will guide future volunteer efforts.
