P E Systems (PES) recently held a clothing drive to collect gently used professional clothes for the Clothes That Work non-profit organization. Upon delivery of the donations, the PES Team received an overview and tour of the non-profit organization building and the new mobile office. This volunteer effort reflects the ways that PES is committed to Environmental Sustainability and maintaining an ecological balance in our planet’s natural environment and conserving natural resources to support the wellbeing of current and future generations.
