Northwest Park visitors are noticing that the bridge over the lake is much brighter and more vibrant now thanks to the efforts of VHA employee volunteers and Keep Irving Beautiful.
Tuesday, Oct. 8, was a beautiful fall day, just perfect for VHA’s 11th annual “Community Day,” where employees from 14 area offices volunteer with non-profit organizations.
This marked the fifth year that KIB that has participated in the program, which has included paint projects at Senter, Fritz and Running Bear Parks. This year’s project, painting the bridge and fences at Northwest Park, involved fifteen hard-working VHA, Novation and Provista team members who gave a total of 52.5 hours and made a stunning impact on the visual appeal of the park.
“We have seen an increase in interest from companies that want to do service projects in the community,” said KIB staff member Julie Schmitt, “but VHA and its family of companies have been partnering with us for many years. They have been at the forefront of corporate citizenship and environmental stewardship, and serve as a great example to any business that wants to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. VHA employees are encouraged to get involved in their communities, and by doing so, they become good-will ambassadors. We are very fortunate to have the VHA, which is based here in Irving, as a year-round sponsor for KIB programs.”
