Spreading Holiday Cheer at Headwall

Posted by Christopher Van Veen on Wed, Dec 21, 2016

In 2016 Headwall embarked on a mission of volunteerism. The small, 50-person technology company headquartered in Fitchburg understood that the community it called home was also home to disadvantaged families in need. So beginning with a variety of projects throughout the area, Headwall employees embraced the opportunity to ‘give back’ by partnering with a local charitable organization called Our Father’s House.

“Our goals were twofold,” said Robin Jacobs of Headwall. “We wanted to help out wherever the need arose and we wanted to have broad employee participation,” she said. In addition to sprucing up neighborhoods and planting trees, Headwall and its employees purchased and assembled hundreds of ‘personal care kits’ for disadvantaged people in the area. “It really was a fun experience each time we assembled these kits,” said Robin. “We all knew we were putting a smile on someone’s face and making their difficult life a little less difficult.”


Headwall had almost 100% employee participation in purchasing new gifts for area children.

The Spirit of Giving at Headwall

Posted by Christopher Van Veen on Fri, Nov 18, 2016

The corporate environment is always a bustling one: Getting and shipping orders, building sensors, designing new products, and maneuvering through a seemingly endless stream of meetings. But at Headwall, we take the opportunity to ‘give back’ to several central Massachusetts communities with families in need. This can range from assembling ‘personal care kits’ to cleaning and beautifying neighborhoods. This happens several times during the year, and is a part of Headwall's ongoing pledge to donate and contribute wherever possible to those less fortunate.
