HOME FOR LITTLE WANDERERS IMPACT DAY – AUGUST 2017
August 11 2017 – Impact Day 2017 celebrates three years of partnership with The Home for Little Wanderers. Each year STAG employees put down their pens and pick up tools and paint brushes, to serve the community in which they live and work. This partnership has become our annual company-wide volunteer day. It is a fulfilling day that serves both giving back to our community and team building.
“The Home’s relationship with STAG is remarkable, it is a true partnership, where STAG engages with us at multiple levels financially, emotionally, and physically. From sponsorships and event chairing to multiple volunteer projects and information sharing, STAG has supported The Home at many levels. STAG’s commitment to The Home makes us feel like they’re just as involved in our mission as we are.” – Rick Houpt, The Home for Little Wanderers
STAG visited The Home’s South-East Campus where we demolished and hauled away a dock, built a shed, painted and decorated three game room spaces for the kids, painted inside and outside of the dining hall and spread 36 yards of wood chips on the ropes course. The day ended with lunch prepared by kids from The Home’s Culinary Program and game interaction between STAG’s staff and the kids in The Home’s program. It was a day of hard work but also fulfilling to those who participated.
