Atlanta-based consulting firm holds first company-wide community service event by cleaning up a local park
ATLANTA, Georgia — August 6, 2018 — As part of Insight Sourcing Group’s continued commitment to giving back to its community, the firm kicked off its first company-wide volunteer event in partnership with Atlanta-based Park Pride, a nonprofit organization that engages communities in their neighborhood parks through volunteer projects, community gardens, community-led park redesigns and by providing grants for capital park improvements.
“A park without people is just a greenspace,” says John Ahern, Volunteer Manager at Park Pride. “So by creating a cleaner, safer and more accessible park, more neighbors will feel welcomed and encouraged to come out and play together, further developing pride in the neighborhood and bonds in the community. ”
On Friday, August 3rd, over 100 ISG employees met at Montreal Park (located in nearby Tucker, Georgia) to execute a number of projects intended to make the park cleaner, safer, and more accessible for local families. Some of the projects included rebuilding picnic tables and benches, mulching trees and entrance areas, and limbing trees and clearing overgrown vegetation to provide better and safer lines of sight into the park.
The Montreal Park project is the most recent example of the passion Insight Sourcing Group employees have for investing their time to make a difference within the community. Earlier this year, the firm held a canned food drive and volunteered at the Atlanta Community Food Bank where they packed over 17,000 pounds of food for senior citizens. Last fall, employees spent the afternoon on the Veterans Empowerment Organization‘s campus landscaping and planting flowers for senior residents.
“This was a great reminder that it’s not always about the business, and you have to give back,” said Tom Beaty, founder and CEO of Insight Sourcing Group. “Our team put an extraordinary amount of effort into the day and we’re excited to see the impact it’s going to have on this neighborhood.”
