On August 15th a team of more than 10 CSX employees participated in a service event to help get the new Willard School ready for students to begin classes on August 25th. After a tour of the new school they got down to business and did a lot of cleaning and preparation. The improvements helped to create a brighter environment that instills a new sense of pride for the students that attend the school.
The event was part of CSX's Team Service initiative, a program that provides charitable resources in support of the community service projects that CSX employees are interested in leading within their local communities. Through the Team Service initiative, approved projects qualify for a charitable donation to the associated nonprofit to cover the costs of the volunteer team's service project. These costs include materials, supplies, and partner organization expenses.
