Calling All Employee Volunteer Groups

peabody - em - 2014 05 22 (7)St. Louis is fortunate to have a wide variety of businesses and professionals that understand the importance of engaging in the communities that support them.  We welcome these businesses to join Brightside in making St. Louis a better and more beautiful place.  Whether your business already has an employee volunteer group or you’re just beginning to establish one, Brightside will work with you to find the perfect cleaning or greening project for your volunteers.

By working with Brightside, your group will see the immediate impact of their efforts and walk away feeling good about their accomplishment.  Plus, consider what a great team-building exercise it would be for co-workers to help plant trees or a butterfly garden in a local park or help care for a community garden in an under-served neighborhood.

Organizing an event couldn’t be easier.  Interested businesses just need to assemble a group of employee volunteers and Brightside will identify a community service opportunity, plus provide guidance, tools and refreshments for volunteers.  Events can be set up during the work week or on a weekend, depending on company policy.

There is no cost to the company or volunteers as funding has been provided by a grant through the Wells Fargo Environmental Solutions for Communities program from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundations.

To discuss setting up a volunteer project for an employee team, call Brightside at 314-772-4646 or email
