Employee volunteerism is an effective way for companies to get involved on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Companies that volunteer with FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway build community relationships, strengthened the company’s internal culture, and serve the communities where they operate.
Many times, your company employees provide skills-based volunteerism that adds value to Parkway projects while giving employees learning and leadership opportunities that may not be immediately available in the workplace. Volunteering with FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway gives your employees a fresh perspective and stimulates their creativity, while also helping protect the Blue Ridge Parkway’s natural and cultural assets.
In the past, FRIENDS has worked with Bank of America and Starbucks to provide their employees with volunteer opportunities.
Your company’s participation in Blue Ridge Parkway volunteer days will benefit employees and the communities where they live and work. This model can be adapted for companies of all sizes, in various industries.
