On Thursday, September 15th, a team from Andesa participated in the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s annual Day of Caring.
The 23rd annual Day of Caring event was upon us and the team from Andesa were off in Bethlehem, giving a refreshed look to Kemmerer Museums Decorative Arts and the Luckenbach Mill, where their expertise in painting and grounds upkeep came in handy. “The United Way Day of Caring was a great opportunity to volunteer and make an impact right in our community” said Nolan Van Wert, Project Manager for Andesa. “While I am newer to the Andesa team, I’ve seen time and time again that Andesa’s values are not just words on a website – they are demonstrated through action. It’s very satisfying to work in an environment where community service is valued and encouraged on the same level as professional development.” Nolan along with eight other employees willingly gave their time toward the success of this day, and look forward to it each year.
More than 1,000 employees from area businesses volunteered their time as part of the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s 23rd Annual Day of Caring. Together, over 113,000 of volunteer hours were contributed on a single day with over 50 companies allowing their employees to miss time from work. Those employees delivered hot meals to home-bound residents, repaired and beautified area non-profits, spend time with seniors and delivered backpacks stuffed with school supplies to local children. The team of Andesa employees, along with the collective efforts from other Lehigh Valley companies make a huge impact on the Day of Caring.
This is what it means to LIVE UNITED.
