Build team bonds through an impactful CSR activity

“How can we top last year?” is a question we love to hear.  When Dräger Medical asked us this question regarding their upcoming team building program, we responded with “build a park from the ground up!”

500 Dräger volunteers showed up at Sunshine Acres – a home for children that have been separated from their parents. Those volunteers proceeded to do the seemingly impossible; transform an empty dirt lot into a 20,000 sq ft park for the kids – something the staff at Sunshine Acres had desperately wanted and needed for more than 5 years.

In less than 5 hours, the volunteers installed irrigation/water lines, laid down 18,000 sq ft of grass/sod, planted 300 trees and bushes, hand-built and hand-painted park benches and planter boxes, and constructed a walking path around perimeter of the park.

As if that wasn’t enough, the team also had enough time to re-surface an existing skateboard park and basketball court, beautify a concrete center road divide with soil, various plants and flowers, and assembled dozens of “build-a-bear” teddy bears for children living at the home.
