UTG Sponsors Serve@Work Community Service Project
As part of its mission to give back to the metro Atlanta community, UTG co-sponsored a fall Serve@Work project September 11-13 for FCS Ministries, an organization focused on transforming distressed neighborhoods through Christian community development. UTG was proud to donate both financial support and labor to the event.
A group of 150 participants rolled up their sleeves for work on a three-day project plan in downtown Atlanta. The aggressive plan, which was approached in a positive way by the entire team, focused on renewal of a thrift store, coffee shop, playground and bike shop – all joined together in one area.
“We’ve had some great projects, but this may be the most fun and ambitious one we’ve ever undertaken,” said Matt McConnell, CEO of Knowlagent and High Tech Ministries and co-chair of the event.
Sharon Harding, Suzanne Daymude and Jennifer Martin “staged” the thrift shop so it would be ready for opening today.
CEO Eric Dykes helped the team in the coffee shop with carpentry work, and a team of volunteers worked long into Thursday night to get the coffee shop ready to open Friday morning.
Pam Cioce sorted books and enjoyed painting. The other volunteers worked in the playground and did some landscaping.
No playground would be complete without a “Where the Wild Things Are” mural.
What fun! Can you even believe what we accomplished? Here are some before and after shots.
Mike Weaver, System Engineer at UTG, was particularly thankful for the opportunity to pitch in. “It was really a blessing to be able to help someone out. It’s great to know that the people I work with have a commitment to the community and to helping others. I am looking forward to the next Serve@Work project.”
Serve@Work really has incredible momentum, and it’s because it fills a very important gap. We’re proud to have played a role in this year’s successful project!
