Turner is gearing up to mark the 115th anniversary of the company’s founding with a company-wide community service blitz Friday, May 5.
Employees in Turner’s offices across the country and around the world will stop work to give back to their communities, joining forces with local charities and organizations, and completing an estimated 15,000 hours of service. Activities include repairing homes, cleaning parks, delivering meals to the elderly, preparing food for veterans and the homeless, connecting with children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses, and many other important activities.
Celebrating the milestone of 115 years with a company-wide day of service reflects and honors Turner’s long history of community engagement, outreach, and partnership, and the company’s belief that belief that service is an essential part of good corporate citizenship.
“Every day throughout the year, we work to improve the communities we serve through the buildings we build,” said Karen Sweeney, senior vice president of Community and Citizenship. She continued, “In addition, we look to make a difference through participation and sponsorship of a wide variety of programs which support youth education, health and welfare, military service members and improving the viability of local businesses. Founders’ Day is a great opportunity to connect our people around the world in a common cause and to support so many worthy organizations.”
