Having a company culture that embraces volunteering in our community made supporting the USGBC’s Green Apple Day of Service a natural fit. In our busy society, and despite good intentions, these types of projects often get pushed down the to-do list. Thus, the Day of Service provided a terrific incentive to prioritize working in our local communities and schools.
Interface had a successful involvement in the first Green Apple Day of Service, with enthusiastic support from Interface associates around the world. To date Interface has invested hundreds of volunteer hours in 35 service projects (and counting). The schools were overwhelmed by the generosity of our volunteers and in-kind support. The students even jumped in to help with projects including installing carpet at Troup County High School in LaGrange, Georgia.
