Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is a huge part of what we do at JLL. It is necessary, it is impactful, and it is rewarding. Last week, nearly 40 JLLers volunteered at two very different events to make a very big difference.
More than 20 of our employees from across a variety of different roles and departments came together in Lynn to support The Food Project. The group braved the 90 degree temperatures to work on a farm weeding, raking, planting, and more.
The Food Project, which manages 70 acres of farmland across Massachusetts, has built a national model of engaging young people in personal and social change through sustainable agriculture. Food from their farms is distributed through community supported agriculture programs and farmers’ markets, and donated to local hunger relief organizations.
Volunteers included: Kathleen Gill, Liu Xiao Feng (Joyce), Donna Law, Joseph Wioncek, Jeanne Osborne, Jennifer Christakes, Phillip Francis, Annemarie Nagel, Tohkti Wayet, Jill Bellio, Adam Gilmore, Ann Thompson, Cynthia Curtis, Julie Walsh, Danielle Farrell, Greg Vicks, Colleen Splaine, Tegan Crean, Charlene DiCarlo, Sam Lordi, Kristie Oberg, Lori Mabardi, Lauren MacDonald and Brooks Murphy.
Meanwhile, about 15 miles away in Cambridge, 12 members of our Property Management team were helping to beautify the streets of Kendall Square as part of Kendall Community Day.
Kendall Community Day, formerly known as the Kendall CleanUp, is an opportunity to enhance the neighborhood by cleaning Kendall’s streets and sidewalks.
Volunteers included: Sarah Holland, Gardner Kelley, Joe Gibbons, Rachel Winsor, Celeste Brooks, Ed Slein, Donna Bennett, Ryan Fay, Vin Cerbone, Cam Hadfield, Nick Fatta and Erika Clarke.
Thanks to all of our volunteers for helping to make a difference in our communities!
