Spring Into Action starts to bloom OUR VALUES
BE a great neighbor
Every year, employees from across the company get together to volunteer during Spring Into Action, our annual call-to-action that offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in our communities and be a great neighbor.
This year, the events started on March 24 and will finish on May 6. During the first three weeks, more than 250 volunteers —employees, retirees and their families and friends —participated in approximately 15 projects.
A big thank you to all our Spring Into Action volunteers for your dedication! Check our next issue of NewsLine to learn more about the activities that took place during the last weeks of this event.
