A team of Stantec employees in Charleston recently helped to make the firm’s fourth annual day of global volunteerism a success by traveling to James Island and reestablishing oyster reefs.
At the Department of Natural Resources headquarters, the employees collected a total of 375 bags. Just 350 are enough to finish a single reef project.
There was a total of 8,000 Stantec emplyoees volunteering for the Community Day. All of the events were to focus on the company giving back to the local area. They also showed the support that the firm has given to the community.
Some other volunteers were in Columbia, where they cleaned two local parks. In North Carolina, volunteers in Winston-Salem helped to fill the Second Harvest Food Bank. Employees in Raleigh cleaned a local park and stream, spent time at the Food Bank of Central & Northern North Carolina, and held a bike clinic dedicated to local elementary school children.
“Community is at the center of everything we do at Stantec,” Paul Koch, regional leader for the Southeast at Stantec, said. “Stantec in the Community Day encourages our staff to support local causes and organizations. And, there is no better way to support our communities than through our personal involvement.”
