Walden Participates in Community Outreach
Giving back is a high priority at Walden. We are passionate about improving the environment and enhancing the well-being of the communities in which we live and work. Walden has an annual volunteer day that encourages employees to perform activities that benefit the community and promote sustainability. At Walden, we are always looking for charitable organizations that can benefit from our time and expertise whenever possible.
For example, Walden employees previously volunteered at Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf. This school works to enhance the quality of life for people who are deaf or have other special communication needs. The Walden staff worked on Mill Neck’s 86-acre campus, painting light posts, removing stumps, and weeding around the property.
Walden employees also volunteered for the North Shore Land Alliance where the staff spent the day weeding and clearing trails at the Fox Hollow Preserve and Hope Goddard Iselin Preserve. These preserves act as a place for visitors to enjoy nature.
Walden’s staff enjoys the opportunity to spend the day outside in nature giving back to the community.
