RefrigiWear® Community Work Day

6/16/2015

RefrigiWear closed its doors for the day to partake in a company sponsored Community Work Day in order to give back to individuals and charities throughout the local community. 

Each RefrigiWear employee was assigned to a team in order to assist a specific charity for the day. RefrigiWear paired with Habitat for Humanity, InterFaith Homeless Ministries, Community Helping Place, and TLC – all located in Lumpkin County.

Outdoor projects included a variety of household duties, ranging from house painting to construction. Teams built barrier walls and hung sheet rock for the new Habitat for Humanity store and helped prepare 4 duplexes for InterFaith Ministries. Other teams constructed a wheel chair ramp for an elderly couple as well as a screened-in porch for a local boy with cancer.

At the TLC Humane Society, RefrigiWear employees built a bridge, assembled fences, and cleaned yard debris. At Community Helping Place, team members sorted, dated, and organized food products to feed the hungry.

“RefrigiWear is incredibly proud and grateful to be able to give back to our community. Our Charity Committee did a fantastic job coordinating our Community Work Day and we look forward to giving back again next year,” says Ron Breakstone, President and CEO at RefrigiWear. The RefrigiWear Charity Committee is currently hard at work planning next year’s Community Work Day to continue the RefrigiWear tradition of volunteering.
