LIVING IN GRATITUDE
At SkyePoint, we go B.I.G. (beginning in GRATITUDE) by recognizing all we have and giving back to our employees, families, and communities. It instills a positive mindset that permeates all we do. By beginning in gratitude, SkyePoint can continue to spread living in gratitude each day.
Members of the SkyePoint Corporate team joined forces with the Roc Solid Foundation in May 2022 to participate in the Play Defeats Cancer Tour. From April 21 – May 20, the Play Defeats Cancer Tour is building 30 playsets in 30 days, rallying communities all over the country to show them how easy it is to build hope for kids fighting cancer. SkyePoint had the amazing opportunity to visit Brielle’s home and build a playset that will provide play and happiness for years to come.
SkyePoint recognizes the armed forces by participating in the 43rd and 44th Marine Corps Marathon 10K. We hope that you, family or friends will join us for the next MCM event to experience the comradery, pride, and the feeling of accomplishment! “Run with PURPOSE, finish with PRIDE.”
SkyePoint has been collecting toys to support The Marine Toys for Tots Program since 2014. Toys for Tots has distributed 584 millions toys since 1947 and helps support 265 million children experience the joys of the holidays. You too can host a Toys for Tots campaign from your home, office, or other venue!
SkyePoint is proud to fight back alongside the Roc Solid Foundation who’s mission is to build hope for every child and family fighting pediatric cancer. Roc Solid was founded in 2009 and have since built hope for thousands of families fighting pediatric cancer across the U.S.
SkyePoint took on the 2020 AARP Meal Pack Challenge to lend a helping hand during COVID-19. The AARP Foundation says the Meal Pack Challenge “is a chance for all of us to safely give back to the community and help struggling older neighbors.” With a shopping list in hand, provided by the Capital Area Food Bank, SkyePoint employees and families hit the shelves to build a curated box for those in need.
Recently, Scott has switched over to producing face shields as their turnaround time is much faster since they only take a couple of hours to print and can be stacked during the process.
Over the past two months, Scott and his son have printed over 350 masks. While he does not have a number on the shields yet, he says they have been filling boxes full of them.
Now, Scott and other printers are all part of a larger group tied together. The NoVA groups include Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington County, Prince William, and Stafford County.
Scott is part of a 3D printer user group that is printing masks to help our military, first responders, and medical personnel who do not have access to adequate PPE, or that are low in supply.
Other ways you can help this effort:
If you do not have a 3D printer, user groups need help fitting the masks with elastic straps and filters. A problem they have encountered is that the elastic straps are sold out everywhere.
There is also a demand for people to assist in the assembly and disinfection of the masks as well as distribution. There are a few drop off locations in the area but if you know of a first responder or medical professional who needs a reusable mask for protection, you can distribute the masks to them as well.
Please understand these masks are a prototype and serve as a mechanical barrier. It is not a replacement for N95 masks. They are experimental in nature and the safety or efficacy for use in humans has not been proven or tested. Users should make every effort to use an available N95 mask if feasible.
