Servicon's ServiconCares Fund Program Looks to Create Healthy Environments for a better working future
CULVER CITY, Calif., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ServiconCares, the philanthropic division of Servicon, the award-winning environmental, commercial cleaning services company, along with L.A. Works- Los Angeles' premier volunteer action center- announced that the Second Annual Servicon Community Service Day will take place on Saturday, August 6th.
The event will gather Servicon employees, families, and friends to bring to life the ServiconCares vision, to inspire systemic change and foster community development through funding, volunteering, participation, and skill building. This vision aligns with the organization's overall purpose to create healthy environments for people to thrive.
The day will feature kit-making activities to benefit the community, including hospital kits to brighten the lives of those currently in long term care. These kits contain items such as hygiene supplies, activities, and socks. Other kits include much needed move-in supplies to help support those leaving transitional housing, such as kitchen items and cleaning supplies. The volunteers will also create seed balls packed with native flower seeds to help beautify schools and their surrounding areas, while teaching kids about gardening and California ecology.
Local beneficiaries will include Children's Hospitals Los Angeles, Upward Bound House, and Cowan Elementary School.

We ask all our Servicon team to join us to safely come together to make a difference in the lives of fellow Angelenos."
