Spring is here, just in time for the employees from Gault Family Companies to complete their first Gault Cares volunteer event at Earthplace in Westport, CT. Volunteer Square was thrilled to help coordinate the first employee volunteer event for the company, having worked with the Gault team back in December when they made Homemade Holiday Cards for Circle of Care Families.
When we first began discussing employee volunteer projects for 2019, Earthplace was the first organization to come to mind. The leadership team at Gault, was passionate about supporting Earthplace and thought this would be a great project to kick off the Gault Cares program. After a very detailed site visit at Earthplace in November 2018 to determine the scope of the projects, the Gault leadership team assigned project managers to each major task that needed to be completed and also created some opportunities for general clean up. A second site visit in March with the project managers and the staff of Earthpace, helped to determine the materials and number of people needed for each task. The project managers, Tina Bahr, Chris Bianco, Andy Dehler, Kevin Lago and Kevin Rackliffe were then ready to get to work with their teams.
