Showing Our Community We Care
In the spirit of National Civility Month, Public Knowledge® wants to share what it means to get involved in our local communities. For those who don’t know what Civility Month is, it’s a reminder to treat customers, coworkers, family, neighbors, and others with courtesy and respect.
PK Employees Lend a Helping Hand
On July 14, 2021, several of our PKers from our Region 2 participated in building a Habitat for Humanity Home using their PK Cares hours. When completed, this will be the home of a local veteran and their family in Cheyenne, WY. During the build, participants assisted with the building of the primary structural beam of the home, making sawhorses for future needs, and framing the center basement wall. Everyone traded off, getting involved with every aspect of the project. PK Cares hours can be applied to any cause or initiative desired but in this instance, those in the Cheyenne area decided to team up and apply their hours on one big project. It not only was a wonderful day of service and a great example of civility but was wonderful teambuilding for them all.

“I was excited to join my PK coworkers in Cheyenne to contribute together to the Cheyenne Community. PK values inclusion, Teamwork, and Impact, and this opportunity definitely hit all three!”Nicole Alonzo, Management Consultant at Public Knowledge®
Each Public Knowledge® employee has a certain amount of PK Care hours a year to give back to their community. This is an opportunity for every member of our organization to involve themselves in a cause they’re passionate about.
“My favorite parts about this event were seeing my coworkers in person in a safe, outdoor setting, which we hadn’t been able to do for a while. I also picked up some new skills. We framed a loadbearing wall! Finally, it was so satisfying to know that our efforts were having a very real, immediate impact in creating a safe home for a veteran in our community.”Nicole Alonzo, Management Consultant at Public Knowledge®
This was a valuable time for our organization to come together for the service to others, especially for a cause as special as Habitat for Humanity. We also hope this serves a reminder to everyone to do an act of kindness this month.
