The Corporate Volunteer Council of Montgomery County presents the Third Annual Volunteering for Business Day
The Corporate Volunteer Council of Montgomery County presents the Third Annual Volunteering for Business Day on May 14th from 9:00 AM - 1:00PM at the Button Farm Living History Center home of the Menare Foundation.
Roll up your sleeves and get to work! You will be instrumental in providing much needed help to this historic venue located right in Montgomery County. This is a great FREE team building opportunity for your company! Bring along your MCPS student to earn Student Service Learning hours!
Help prepare soil for planting, plant seeds, stack wood, clear trails, create signs, build and paint benches and fences... there is something for everyone and every bit helps!
After completing one of these fulfilling projects, enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch generously donated by Smokey Glen Farms.
Meet and mingle with several non-profits on-site to discuss future projects or a long term relationship with your company!
