Volunteering pays off: The Best Buy Tag Team Award program recognizes the volunteer efforts of Best Buy employees by making a financial contribution to nonprofit organizations where the employees offer leadership, expertise and time. This year Best Buy employees organized and/or participated in a Golf for a Buddy golf outing, a car show, bake sales and a charity softball event, and took part in the annual Buddy Walk of the Valley. As a result of their volunteer efforts, the Down Syndrome Association of the Valley received $4,000 in Best Buy Tag Team Awards. Making sure everyone knows how big the contribution was, a giant-size check is displayed by, from left, Michele Jones, DSAV co-founder/president; Jody Esposito, assistant manager at Boardman Best Buy; 5-year-old Christian Trella, who is sponsored by Best Buy, and Jack Trella.
