Canto Cares is an employee volunteer group founded by Rachel Pisarevich, an account manager at Canto, to bring employees together through planning fun team events and giving back to the community.

At our first volunteer outing, Canto volunteers helped prepare a meal for around 10 families staying in Raphael House, a nonprofit that provides shelter for low-income and homeless families in San Francisco. It was a great way to serve the community while learning a few culinary tips from a professional chef!

“Giving back to the community is so important and it’s even better to do it as a team. It was amazing to learn about everything being done at Raphael House!” says Alisha Chakravarty, an account manager at Canto who organized the volunteer event.
