Gearing Up for Good Company
A year ago, we chronicled the journey of Timberland’s community engagement coordinator Brianne Wood as she joined 25 fellow volunteers from other companies for a week of Earthkeeping and community building in New Orleans . This year, we’re proud to be packing up two of our Timberland colleagues for the second annual In Good Company experience:
- Lynn Woodrum works in the human resources department at Timberland’s Danville, Kentucky distribution center. She is bravely leaving four children, ages 17 to 17 months, in the capable hands of her husband as she sets off for a week of restoration and revitalization in New Orleans. Lynn’s biggest concerns heading into the service week: “Have I taken care of my responsibilities for next week at home, at work? Am I taking enough supplies for my trip? Have I remembered to buy all the needed necessities for home?” A mom’s work is never done …
- MacKenzie Mosca is an associate at Timberland’s factory outlet store in Long Island, New York. An outdoor enthusiast with a penchant for hiking, the beach and her three dogs, MacKenzie is looking forward to personally contributing to post-Katrina rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. In her own words, “People working together … are capable of limitless possibilities.”
Please stay tuned, as we’ll be featuring regular updates from Lynn and MacKenzie throughout their weeklong service experience here on the Earthkeeper blog … interested Earthkeepers can also follow MacKenzie on Twitter (Timberland_MacK). We wish them both safe travels, and applaud their willingness to take time out from their personal and professional lives to devote hours and effort to creating a positive impact for a community in need.
