With rakes, shovels, plants, mulch, paintbrushes and rollers, employees from the Windsor, Connecticut, office of Voya Financial Services traveled to Springfield, East Longmeadow and Southwick to provide services to the Center for Human Development.
Voya is participating in its third annual National Day of Service. Volunteer services at CHD facilities included outdoor spring cleanup, landscaping, planting perennials, rototilling and planting a vegetable garden at CHD Meadows Homes residences.
“While the National Day of Service gives us the opportunity to make a significant impact in our communities, it also harnesses the energy and passion of our employees, facilitates teamwork, raises the visibility of our brand and strengthens the bond between our company and our communities,” said Angela Harrell, head of Voya Foundation and the Office of Corporate Responsibility. “I’m proud to work for a company committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work.”
At CHD’s Early Intervention Playroom, in Springfield, Voya volunteers painted a mural depicting scenes of nature and the outdoors to brighten up an interior space for the children who are served there. CHD Early Intervention works with infants and children from birth to three years of age who have or are at risk for developmental delays. Professional staff creates individualized plans to promote each child’s development of play, movement, social behavior, communication and self-care skills.
