Nelson employees spent a glamorous day in San Francisco volunteering for The Princess Project, a nonprofit organization that provides free prom dresses to high school students who otherwise would not be able to afford them. Erin Beck, Sarai Jacobson, Adrienne Doppee, and Jennifer Gabriana had the opportunity to act like fairy godmothers for a day and help girls find the perfect dress and accessories to match!

Our Nelson volunteers had a rewarding and memorable time at the event. Here are some of their thoughts about the experience and The Princess Project:

“It was a truly rewarding experience watching these girls who initially came in feeling uncomfortable and shy leave feeling confident, happy, and with a beautiful dress. It may seem like a small act to some, but the project, committee members, and volunteers make a huge impact on these girls.”
-Sarai Jacobson

“I started the day thinking it was going to be a great way to spend time with some of my favorite co-workers in San Francisco, but it was so much more.  The smiles, giggles and hugs that we got from the young girls made it amazing.  It was great making dreams come true and matching the girl with her perfect dress when we’re not recruiting Recruiters for the biggest tech companies in Silicon Valley.”
-Jennifer Gabriana

“The Princess Project is an amazing organization that works hard all year to give high school girls the prom dress of their dreams. They made sure we all focused on building confidence and making the girls feel beautiful.”
-Adrienne Doppee

“I think it’s important for each of us to step out of our ‘bubbles’ and into areas of service, and The Princess Project was a great way for us as a team to participate in something outside of the norm. I look forward to other opportunities to serve and can’t wait until next year’s Princess Project event.”
-Erin Beck
