Volunteers Celebrated Heart & SOL Day With Community Service
Each year, SOLitude’s nationwide 500+ team members are encouraged to spend up to four hours during the workday supporting their local communities through service. On April 21st, colleagues came together to observe the fifth annual Heart and SOL Day by cleaning up trash in nature preserves, beaches, and neighborhoods, restoring ponds, assembling food donations, painting buildings, and more.
Creating A Better World
To coordinate these efforts, colleagues across 40 offices partnered with various organizations, including Gladiolus Food Pantry, ECHO Global Farm, Keep Lee County Beautiful, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, and Friends of Whitehall Park. By the end of the day, team members had generated over 319 volunteer hours and cleaned up 25 neighborhoods.
“Heart and SOL Day is about creating a better world by cleaning the one we have,” Hannah Gentry, SOLitude’s Community Outreach and Communications Specialist said. “It’s an opportunity for colleagues to take a break from daily tasks and focus on the well-being of our local communities and the planet.”
How The SOLution Is Helping Communities
Heart and SOL Day is just one of several initiatives hosted under the charitable arm of the company, The SOLution.
