BuzzBee, a strategic marketing and consulting leader in Seattle, is pleased to announce an employee donation of $1,000 and team participation in the Pioneer Square Spring Clean on April 16, 2011. The company is eager to join efforts with The Alliance of Pioneer Square and the City of Seattle to beautify the historic neighborhood, and welcomes the chance to work side-by-side with other local companies to revitalize the area.
“Our team is fortunate to work in the historic Mottman Building in Pioneer Square,” said Michele Keeffe, CEO. “The history and vibe of our community is an integral part of our culture at BuzzBee. We realize the value of our financial support, but also want to be a part of the revitalization efforts of the square as it has a direct impact on our ability to recruit and retain innovative talent.”
BuzzBee prides itself on its philanthropic efforts, donating time, manpower and money to organizations advocating for women and children, as well as participating in activities such as the Alki Beach Run 5K, home improvements with Rebuilding Together, coat drives for St. Joseph’s Baby Corner, or collecting flash drives for the YWCA of Seattle. For this event, employees from BuzzBee will join as many as 200 other anticipated volunteers in projects such as litter pick-up, painting over graffiti, mulching tree wells, planting flowers, clean-up for Fortson Square, and weeding. The event will take place on April 16, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Occidental Park, located at Occidental Ave S and S Main St., in Pioneer Square. The Alliance is optimistic that the clean-up effort will make the area more inviting and that it will show other businesses, like BuzzBee, that Pioneer Square is a great area to set up shop and be successful.
“BuzzBee’s young, innovative, free-thinking culture fits perfectly with the culture of the neighborhood,” said Leslie Smith, Director of the Alliance of Pioneer Square. “Companies like BuzzBee rejuvenate the area and have a positive economic impact in a down economy. We strive to attract more companies like BuzzBee.”

About the Alliance for Pioneer Square:
Seattle’s Pioneer Square District encompasses the birthplace of modern Seattle and the city’s first downtown. Most of the Square’s buildings were erected within a decade of the disastrous Great Fire of June 6, 1889. Today, Pioneer Square is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is protected by both federal and local historic preservation districts. Over the last 40 years, Pioneer Square has become the most prominent address for Seattle’s artists and art galleries. After more than 150 years of ups and downs, Pioneer Square remains largely intact as one of the nation’s best-preserved Victorian Era downtown districts and as Seattle’s first – and liveliest – neighborhood.
