Nicole Melander is new to Buffalo. She works for a company called Deloitte Consulting – a company that organizes a day of service where employees spend a day making a difference in the community. This year Nicole has asked that BRO viewers help to guide the company towards an urban clean up. The idea sounded logical to me, and although I have some of my own ideas regarding neighborhoods in need, I’m leaving it up to you for suggestions. Nicole is hoping that you can be very specific when you suggest an area of the city that is need of a this type of initiative. Also, is there an organization that operates in the area in question? Following is the request from Nicole:
I work for Deloitte Consulting. The Deloitte Buffalo office does an “IMPACT Day” every June. All 40 employees will be available for a full day volunteer activity. I’m looking for ideas on putting the group to “work” for the day. They are most interested in a physical activity — cleaning, painting, gardening, etc. — where all 40 people can be together for the day. (It is a mix of team building and volunteer work.) There are really no other parameters. I’d be very grateful if you could suggest a part of the city in need of help while connecting me with some non-profits who would benefit from something like this.
You have the option of either sending Nicole an email or leaving a comment on BRO.
