Celebrating an Epic Year of Service!

Our Epic Gives Back program is a key element of our work culture, and we strive to give back to the community as much as we can. Seeing that National Volunteer Week, which takes place April 12-18 this year, is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to go out and engage others in their community, we are recognizing all our volunteer’s efforts the past year.
