A Peek Inside Spectrum Brands Nationwide Day of Service

July 3, 2018

Inside Spectrum Brands

June 14th was our third annual company-wide day of service! This year’s theme was #CommunityWithPurpose. With help from the National Environmental Education Foundation, we organized volunteer events for our employees in eight cities across the country.

Here’s a glimpse into what we did:

  • Removed invasive plants at Marshall Park and Stricker Pond in Madison, WI with help from the Clean Lakes Alliance.
  • Spruced up equestrian trails at Possum Creek with help from Five Rivers MetroParks in Dayton, OH.
  • Weeded, planted, harvested vegetables, and tended crops at Gateway Greening in St. Louis, MO.
  • Partnered with the Laguna Canyon Foundation in Laguna Beach, CA to pick up trash and restore trails impacted by California wildfires.
  • Lent a hand at Nellies Cave Park in Blacksburg, VA mulching, removing invasive species, and cleaning up.
  • Worked on trail maintenance and planting at Tarrywile Park and Mansion in Danbury, CT. 
  • Partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to volunteer at Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Denison, TX.
  • Spruced up an area impacted by last year’s hurricanes at Amelia Earhart Park in Miami, FL.

“With eight Spectrum Brands locations spread throughout the country engaged in this day of service, we are poised to have a national impact on local parks and nature areas and their connected waterways,” said Spectrum Brands Division Vice President, Chief Sustainability Officer Daniel Hutter in a press release. “By helping employees make the connection between their individual actions and the long-term impact they can have on the natural areas around them, the day gives our employees a chance to be part of ongoing, lasting change.”

We’re so proud of our employees for not being afraid to get their hands dirty and give back to the community! We made a big difference by working together, and we can’t wait to see what more we can do in the years to come. View more photos from our event here.
