We Care A Lot
June 22, 2012 by jsalviati1
This year, the Camden Mid-Atlantic team went to Wolf Trap National Park to give back to the community. Wolf Trap National Park is a performing arts center which features local and national performing artists and programs. The grounds and buildings are maintained by the National Park Service and volunteers. We were privileged to help give back. As a whole, we did an estimated $15,000 worth of labor.
There were several different activities going on throughout the day including painting, weeding, and power washing. To give you an idea of the impact our team of about 150, here are some statistics.
-power washed 200 trash cans
-cleaned 3500 theater seats
-painted two bathrooms
-washed 15 vehicles
-pulled two tons of weeds
I have been with Camden for over a year, and this is the second time I have participated in a Camden Cares event. I got to work in the group that painted the two bathrooms. I personally love giving back to the community and working with people that I don’t get to on a regular basis. I am proud to be a party of the Camden family.
“This was my first “Camden Cares” event and it will definitely be remembered as one of the most memorable events from my 1st year with Camden. Having the opportunity to bring this entire region together, put on some gloves, and give back to our community was really a special experience for me to be a part of. We not only worked hard, but we had fun!! Camden Care’s is an event that I had heard so many good things about, and it still managed to exceed my expectations. This event is just another reason why Camden…….is Camden! “- Carter Powell, Camden Potomac Yard
