Corporate Volunteer Day planned in Bergen County----Assignments are going fast for this first-ever event
North Jersey: Being successful in business is about more than doing well. It’s also about doing good.
The Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council (BVC), a program of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, presents All in a Day’s Work, an inaugural, county- wide day of service for corporate volunteers, sponsored by TD Bank.
All in a Day’s Work is planned for September 21st. Companies can choose from dozens of projects—such as sprucing up grounds and displays at local museums, providing a day of fun for lonely seniors, teaching children how to volunteer, community gardening, or maintenance of hiking trails and more.
Companies can also underwrite individual projects for a fee, which includes branding on the BVC website, all marketing materials, and slots for up to 10 volunteers. Call 201-489-9454 Ext. 114 more sponsorship information.
Successful businesses know that community involvement contributes to the bottom line and produces a real return on investment by boosting employee moral, attracting qualified employees, developing employee skills and enhancing company image within the community, helping to differentiate a company from its competition.
“If your company has considered community service, but no one is quite sure how to begin, this will be a great opportunity to become a part of a big, area-wide effort, participating in already-organized projects that will give your employees a way to give back and interact with the community. It is a chance for your company to gain recognition as a good corporate citizen, and a great way to get your employees to work together and form bonds outside the office,” says Amanda Missey, BVC director.
Interested companies must register before August 31st by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 201-489-9454.
Founded in 2000, the BVC gives more than 35,000 employee volunteers the opportunity to impact the lives of low-income children and families by addressing the issues of literacy, hunger and education and the needs of foster children. In twelve years, the BVC has generated and distributed over $1.3 million in resources to families in need.
