In Good Company

Over the next few days, nearly 30 employees from a handful of companies (including Timberland) will descend on New Orleans for a weeklong, hands-on community building experience.

In Good Company is a multi-company venture organized by Clif Bar & Company and an evolution of Clif Bar’s “Project 2080,” its employee community service program (the company pledges to donate at least 2,080 hours of service annually – the amount one full-time employee works in a year).  The week-long community building experience is designed to unite individuals around a common purpose and passion, providing them with an opportunity to share best practices while putting their positive energy to work for the city of New Orleans.

While in New Orleans, the team will work directly with three local organizations: Rebuilding Together, New Orleans Food and Farm Network, and Bayou Rebirth.  The week’s projects will focus primarily on Hollygrove, a neighborhood particularly hard hit by Hurricane Katrina.  In Good Company volunteers will help to restore the community by creating backyard gardens, helping to construct an urban food and farming center and working on habitat restoration.

Timberland’s own community engagement coordinator Brianne Wood is fortunate to be among the In Good Company volunteers, and will be sharing her observations and experiences with us here on Earthkeepers.  Until then, you can follow the group’s progress on the In Good Company blog.
