Read what past corporate volunteer groups have said about America’s Grow-a-Row and their volunteering experience:
“This effort has provided an unanticipated benefit for employees – allowing our staff to work together and to get to know each other outside the bank. There is no corporate hierarchy when it comes to hands-on volunteer activities like picking corn and fresh produce for food banks. Volunteering with America’s Grow-A-Row enables employees from different departments, branches and levels of seniority to share experiences and interact on a deeper level, resulting in stronger relationships.”
– James Hughes, Unity Bank President & CEO
“Being of service to others and giving back to the community are in the DNA of Prudential and its employees. That’s why several hundred Finance employees and I have volunteered with America’s Grow-A-Row organization for the last two years. With each visit, we harvest more produce than the prior year, knowing that every vegetable picked is donated to individuals and families in need. It’s what makes this organization so special – they provide a valuable and worthwhile service in connecting those who want to help, with those who need the help.”
– Rob Falzon, Executive Vice President, CFO of Prudential Financial Inc.
“For the past few years, we have conducted team building farming events at AGAR. Chip and his team not only do a great job of educating everyone on the needs of the community and how their efforts make a difference, but they also make farming FUN! AGAR is a very special organization providing a much-needed resource as everyone should have access to healthy food choices.”
– Jeanne Collins, Vice President – East Sales of Quotient Technologies (Formerly Coupons.com)
