FirstService Residential: Teambuilding and Community Service Go Hand in Hand

Seeking a teambuilding activity that also contributed to the greater good, the Chicago office at FirstService Residential joined together on August 3rd for its second annual beach clean up. A team of 50 company volunteers donned their gloves and set out to clean up trash and other debris along Oak Street Beach.

The effort supported the mission of the Alliance for the Great Lakes. Participating in the event is more than just picking up trash – volunteers get to become conservation biologists for the day, and are tasked with recording data of what and how much is collected. This data is entered data into a publicly-accessible online Adopt-A-Beach system database and shared with local beach health and city officials who use the information to make lake and beach improvements. More than 52 pounds of trash was collected.

According to FirstService Residential Illinois President Asa Sherwood, this is an event associates look forward to every year. Getting to enjoy a gorgeous summer day while doing something positive for the community and environment is a win for all involved.

Volunteers sign in and receive training on how to properly document trash and debris collected for the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ online database
