A few of our employees recently reinforced our commitment to helping communities with their participation in a Community Volunteer Workday event at Whalon Lake in Naperville, Illinois.
Eighty-four Saratoga Food Specialties employees volunteered a combined total of 245 hours helping to preserve native plants and wildlife in the Will County Forest Preserve District by clearing trails and removing brush and garbage from the forest. These volunteers were joined by almost 500 other employee volunteers from area businesses, all working with the goal of improving and preserving the community.
The Forest Preserve District’s mission is to preserve and protect wildlife and open spaces for the enjoyment of future generations. They organize sustainability-related volunteer events, preserve hiking trails and provide conservation education to the community.
We are proud to support organizations such as this whose sustainability values align with ours.
