Palantir Gets into the Charity Spirit this Holiday Season! Palantir joins in the YYC Tech Gives event to give something back to the city of Calgary.


Palantir Solutions (www.palantirsolutions.com) joins other Calgary-based technology firms in the YYC Tech Gives Challenge 2012. The initiative was conceived with the aim of giving back to the community as well as to showcase the local tech community as a vibrant one that is making a difference in Calgary. This year Palantir is delighted to be a part of this very worthy cause and even managed to win the coveted Kick-Off Cup!

The YYC Tech Gives Challenge kicked-off on Tuesday 4th December with a group of volunteers from participating technology companies giving an hour of their time to put in a shift in the Food Bank warehouse. Theo Burn, Dana Hilliker and Robert Hansen from the Palantir Calgary office joined the group of staff from other participating businesses in the sorting and bagging of various vegetables and other foods. These will be distributed by the Calgary Food Bank to those in need over the holiday season.

Robert Hansen, Principal Consultant for Palantir in Canada said “The event is a great chance for us as a business to get involved and make sure we are giving something back to the city in which we work. Giving an hour of our time is so easy to do, yet collectively what the teams from different businesses are able to achieve will have a big impact on the people this initiative is striving to support.” The Palantir team’s first-rate efforts also saw them bring home the coveted Kick-Off Cup, meaning that between them as a team, they managed to sort and bag the biggest amount of food in the one hour period!
