Louisville, Ky. (July 30, 2015)—Over 100 sales, marketing and product management employees from GE Appliances were present at a volunteer day held on July 10 at Louisville’s Boys & Girls Haven.
Boys & Girls Haven is a private, nonprofit agency dedicated to serving victims of abuse and neglect since 1950. For their volunteer day, the GE Appliances team renovated sections of the older buildings on the primary campus, which include the residential houses, the on-campus school, and the equine center. Projects ranging from applying fresh coats of paint and cleaning up the landscaping, to rebuilding access ramps and adding new appliances to the residential kitchen were divided among the large group.
“We picked Boys & Girls Haven because it’s close to home,” said Mike Brown, co-lead of the GE Volunteer Network, when deciding upon a location for the annual project, “and because we have a large number of employees that do have foster children, so we felt this was another way for us to help out.”
