Giving back to the community is at the center of The Agency's mission, and we're always looking for ways to come together and make an impact. From building homes to rolling up our sleeves and giving back to our planet, we strive to make our communities safe, beautiful places to live and ensure a legacy for generations to come.
That's why our international teams came together on September 17 to clean up beaches, parks, schools and more, gathering a total of over 1,176 pounds of trash collectively. The 159 worldwide volunteers participated in 477 combined hours of clean-up at 15 “We Love Our City!” events. The diverse locations ranged from L.A., Aspen, and D.C to Amsterdam, Maui, and Cabo.
Our Florida team cleaned up their white sand beaches while NorCal agents beautified bleachers at a local high school. Dog friends joined the Ontario group at a nearby park, the Calgary team took an urban hike to clean up their city, and the Boston office planted trees. The Los Cabos agents—who have been busy with Hurricane Olaf relief—invited the community to participate in the clean-up day with breakfast burritos and coconut water.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this clean-up effort!
