Buckingham Foundation organizes the annual Buckingham Day of Service where all corporate and site employees leave their desks and offices for an afternoon of volunteering in the community. With over 325 employees serving at 40 different nonprofits, the impact our team made was outstanding!
Here are some numbers:
400 mailings prepared, 50 ornaments hung, 35 t-shirt bags made to be used for grocery shopping
25 shelves re-stocked of food
55 shrubs winterized
Midwest Food Bank
3,150 pounds of food repackaged for distribution
Humane Society of Johnson County
Cleaned over 5 cat rooms
20 kitty boxes cleaned
2 dogs fully entertained for the afternoon
13 chickens served (not as meals)
1 new chicken dome built (new home for 8 chickens)
1,000 square-feet of garage painted using 5 gallons of paint
1 Vice President dressed as Santa
These numbers don't even compare to the over 2,000 volunteer hours our team served all in one day. We are thankful to be part of a generous community and can't wait to see what our team accomplishes next year for Day of Service!
