The KIB cleanup was part of “Javelin Giving Day,” which offered employees from the Irving headquarters as well as the New York and California offices an opportunity to give back by participating in their choice of service projects in their respective locations. While the KIB team was cleaning the Campion Trails, other groups were partnering with non-profits in activities ranging from walking dogs to serving meals.
KIB Board Member Karen Harmon had this to say about the event: “We are seeing more and more of this type of activity in our corporate community, where a company focuses on giving back to the community where they are located. Service days like this are a great opportunity for employees to get out of their normal work environment, perhaps work with different people, and in this case, getting outdoors and enjoying nature. We appreciate the great effort by the Javelin employees here at Bird’s Fort Trail.”
