On Wednesday May 23, we kicked off the first of 6 planned Days of Caring where employees from Tweed volunteer their efforts on Tweed company time to tackle projects for our partners throughout Lanark County & Smiths Falls. Our first project was weeding and cleaning up the backyard at The Mission in Smiths Falls, creating an enjoyable space for mission patrons to rest and share a free meal. The backyard needed some major TLC and the 10 Tweed volunteers were up for the challenge! Not only did they clean up the backyard, and spring clean inside the shelter, they kept the day of Caring going by picking up garbage at Lower Reach Park in Smiths Falls. A Big THANK YOU to the Tweed team for helping out at the Mission (and donating some food towards lunch for the clients) along with working together to beautify our community for all to enjoy!
We would also like to send a special thank you to the team at Canadian Tire in Smiths Falls for donating bags of soil along with some vegetable plants and flowers which we planted in the Missions’ backyard.
We look forward to our next Day of Caring together with the wonderful Tweed employees!
