At Coghlin Companies, giving back to the community is a top priority. We pride ourselves on being engaged in service and saw United Way’s Day of Caring as another great opportunity to become involved with an organization that does so much for people in need. For four generations, including three generations of chairs for the annual campaign, Coghlin Companies has been long term supporters of United Way.
This will be Coghlin Companies’ fifth year participating in The Day of Caring. This event, held once a year, is dedicated to bettering the community through service projects at various local agencies. The projects are determined by the agencies in advance to ensure efficient use of volunteers’ time and effort for maximum results.
This year we are sending four of our employees to participate in the event. They will be working on a project with one of the local agencies who partner with the United Way. In the past, Coghlin Companies has volunteered with Green Island Residents Group, HMEA, the Worcester Housing Authority, and Pernet Family Health Services on a variety of projects that included painting, scraping, cleaning, gardening, and raking.
This year our volunteers will work at a store recently opened by Habitat for Humanity called ReStore. This retail outlet provides building supplies and home improvement items and is where our volunteers will spend their Day of Caring organizing and assisting customers.
Every year the volunteers from Coghlin Companies enjoy participating in this great event. We already have employees asking to help next year, and they can rest assured they will get the chance to help and give back to our community. In addition to participating in The Day of Caring event, Coghlin Companies’ employee base supports the United Way through an annual drive.
