Energizer Donates Volunteers and Funds to Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Camp Katoya in Milford
May 17, 2013
Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Camp Katoya was the recipient of volunteer time and resources thanks to a generous outpouring of support from the Energizer Corporation.
Nearly 100 employees from Energizer’s Shelton and Milford offices worked at the camp for several hours on April 26, led by the Culture Team. The Culture Team, a group of employees who plan projects such as these, was created by the Energizer leadership team five years ago as a way to give back to the community.
“This is some of the most satisfying work we’ve done,” said John Hill, Vice President, North America. “It’s important to us to give back to the communities in which we work and live in.”
Employees spent time raking leaves, painting, making picnic tables, replacing a support beam on one of the buildings, splitting and stacking wood, and other assorted yard work. In addition, the team made a financial gift to help with maintaining the camp.
“We are deeply touched and incredibly grateful to the Energizer Corporation for their generous donation of time, resources, and funds,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “The support and friendship of organizations such as Energizer is invaluable to our organization, particularly when we can use the help in maintaining our camp properties. On behalf of all the girls who will be attending Camp Katoya this summer, I thank Energizer once again!”
