11/7/09 - Thank you CITI Financial for volunteer with TLD
CitiFinancial volunteers in Baltimore, Maryland, teamed up to help out at The Loading Dock, a non-profit building materials recycle/reuse facility with a mission to improve communities and the environment by redistributing surplus building materials. The CitiFinancial team cleaned, sorted, labeled, lifted and restocked.
"What a great day!” said volunteer Cheryl Parrish. “My group started by organizing piles of long countertops. As we finished, customers were checking out the items that they can now see and easily touch. Later, as I was wiping the grime off my seventh stainless steel sink, I saw a young couple admire my team's just cleaned shelf of sinks. They pulled one off the shelf. They walked down the aisle at The Loading Dock, hand in hand, carrying one of "our sinks" off to a new life.
“Another Citi volunteer helped an older couple load a stove onto a flatbed cart. He overheard the wife saying that this will be the first year she will be able to cook a turkey for her family's Thanksgiving dinner since she will finally have enough burners that work and an oven that is big enough. Our team worked non-stop, lifting, stacking, moving, reorganizing and washing. I was wiped out, but I left feeling good about what had been accomplished. What a great place to volunteer!"
