Earth Day Event
LAWRENCE, MA (April 21, 2012) – Sekisui Voltek, Lawrence, MA facility, participated in Comcast Cares Day in cooperation with Groundwork Lawrence, the Mayor’s Health Task Force and many more partners in cleaning up and completing beautification projects across the City of Lawrence.There were over 25 sites across Lawrence that received attention with projects such as tree planting; building raised garden beds, building butterfly gardens and cleanups along the Shawsheen River to name a few.
Lawrence employees, with the help of members of Sekisui America Corporation and Accenture, tackled their own beautification project, which included flower planting and picking up trash around surrounding neighborhood streets.
It was a very “gratifying day” to quote one of our employees who participated in the day. Employees present volunteered 4 to 5 hours of their Saturday morning to help out with the event. In total, just over 500 people from the City participated and next year they hope to double that number. Sekisui Voltek plans to participate in next year’s Earth Day event and it is hoped that the number of participating employees will at least double. Those that participated proudly wore their “Comcast Cares” shirts and jeans to work the following Friday.
