How Salesforce is Celebrating Thanksgiving

 How Salesforce is Celebrating ThanksgivingAhhh, Thanksgiving. The time to give thanks, eat mountains of food, and pack a month’s worth of activities into one tryptophan-heavy holiday. Whether you’re hopping on a plane, prepping the pie, volunteering, or monitoring the consumption of mulled wine by your favorite aunt, chances are you’re spreading plenty of cheer this holiday season. 

And so are we. At Salesforce, we’ve been filling our calendars (and our bellies) with opportunities to give thanks, give back, and have fun. We’ve included a recap of how our employees are celebrating Thanksgiving across the country.

San Francisco

Teams at global headquarters gave back in a big way: employees wrote letters to injured veterans at the VA Palo Alto hospital, served hot meals to the homeless at St. Anthony’s, and are scheduled to help beautify parks with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department. Also on the menu: potlucks aplenty and a “Wall of Thanks,” upon which employees shared what they are most thankful for.

Dessert first! Seattle employees brought in traditional cookies from around the globe for a sweet Thanksgiving soiree…along with a little Fremont Bonfire Ale to wash it all down. We’ll cheers to that!


Windy City employees are gearing up to build houses for families in need this season with Habitat for Humanity. Sales Reps also test-drove holiday recipes at a “Practice Potluck” (gotta make sure those dishes are delicious enough for the big day).

Our Atlanta office doesn’t mess around when it comes to the annual “Hunger Games” food drive, where different teams competed to see who can collect the most food items for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The giving kept going with a clothing drive to benefit local homeless and children’s shelters. When it comes to celebrating, the holiday potluck was not to be missed: employees whipped up family recipes so that everyone was able to enjoy a slice of Salesforce family traditions. 


Pass the pie! Our Boston office hosted a Thanksgiving Pie Party and served up turkey shepherd’s pie along with pumpkin, pecan, apple, and blueberry pies for dessert (cue the food coma!).


The American Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive for all employees in our Portland office. How did they fuel up before the drive? An office potluck with “bacon galore!”

New York

The Salesforce World Tour kicked off a massive food drive and winter clothing drive to help New York City communities in need. The Real Estate and Workplace Services team also organized a finger-lickin’ feast in Midtown and Soho. 

Herndon, Virginia

Employees toted in their canned and boxed food to support local nonprofit Cornerstones’ annual Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive and help make a fulfilling holiday possible for nearly 1,000 families this season. 

Thanksgiving time is an amazing opportunity to make the importance of philanthropy front-and-center. No matter the season, we at Salesforce are committed to giving back, whether it be at work, at Dreamforce, or employees on their own time. Find out more about the Salesforce Foundation.
