Thanks very much!
A few months ago I was approached by a woman representing a local marketing analytics company called DataXu Inc. Stephanie Goldfarb was my contact person at DataXu, we eventually met in the park months ago to talk about ways in which she and her team might be able to support the park.
From that meeting months ago we decided on a park beautification day which was executed to perfection yesterday! Stephanie brought with her a team of 8 people to prune, remove weeds, plant flowers, turn soil and bag up the garden refuse. They donated their time from 5:30 until 8pm, and during that time it rained heavily periodically. This team of volunteers not only worked through the rain they also had a good time throughout.
They promised to visit a few more times this year! The next visit coming sometime in September.
Knowing this team of volunteers was coming I also organized Capital One to provide the team with refreshments. Once again, Capital One is proving themselves to be great community partners. I'm glad we were finally able to get our banking moved over to them. The volunteers told me afterwards that they were very appreciative of the refreshments and that this volunteer project proved to be their favorite to date!
