Here at Brownstone, we think an important part of our work environment is being able to give back to the community where we all live and work. That's why our staff regularly volunteers at local charitable organizations during work hours.
Last week, all four of our Program Underwriters were given the opportunity to volunteer at the Salvation Army in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
On Tuesday, it was Dale and Melissa's turn. The duo helped serve breakfast and also prepared and served lunch to roughly 70 people who showed up for assistance. Later, Dale helped Lieutenant Nicole Ross of the Plymouth Police Department collect bread and other bakery items at Stop & Shop and delivered them to the Salvation Army. With a turn out of about 70 people, the help Dale and Melissa offered was very much appreciated.
On Friday, it was Amy and Stephanie's turn. Their day began in the kitchen by assisting the chef with lunch preparation for about 30 people. They helped serve the food and later helped clean the dishes. After lunch was served, they helped the Salvation Army staff distribute food items from the pantry to the crowd.
All four Brownstone staff members said that the experience was personal, emotional and rewarding.
