Tocci volunteers returned to Project Hope’s Dorchester shelter for their second annual clean-up day.
The group worked outside to landscape their outdoor community space, playground, and field. Tasks included mulching, lawn-mowing and weed whacking, and disinfecting toys and play areas. With safety protocols limiting available activities for children, outdoor-time remains a safe, fun, and healthy option. This provided extra inspiration for our team to beautify the space for the kids and their families. The event was also a perfect opportunity for the Tocci team spend time together outside while social distancing and supporting an important local multi-service agency.
This volunteer opportunity was made possible by the planning and coordination of Project Hope’s staff as well as the Tocci-sponsored Johan Mackenzie Service Program. This program encourages employee volunteerism and the support of non-profit organizations that improve the well-being of people in need. The program provides either two Service Volunteer Days off per year or one Service Matching Grant Award up to $2,000 per year to participate in a volunteer event or activity.
This was Tocci’s third volunteer opportunity with Project Hope and they look forward to continue supporting their cause.
