At Jack Morton, we know we have a responsibility that goes far beyond our needs and our clients’ needs. We’re committed to making a positive difference in the world in which we live and work. We’re committed to doing the right thing. It’s not our corporate policy, it’s just who we are.
In that spirit, the Jack Morton New York office is teaming up with IPG to support New York Cares Day for Schools.
Making a difference
On October 22, Jack Morton New York will head to The Alfred Zimberg School, P.S. 2 in Queens, NY, to help revitalize the school. Our volunteers will paint the school logo on the front entrance and the playground, organize book rooms, and plant bulbs outside. P.S. 2 Q has faced the challenge of completing these projects due to a lack of funding. The work we do will help foster a positive and exciting learning environment where all the students can thrive.
On top of the physical transformation that Jack will help with, we’re also making a difference by donating a charitable contribution on behalf of all team members so that New York Cares can continue to make a difference.
A continued effort
This year is the 25th anniversary of the New York Cares Day program, and the third time in as many years that Jack will be participating. Other outings included restoring The Rockwood Park School, P.S. 207 Q, a year after it was struck by Hurricane Sandy (below), as well as rehabilitating Weeping Beech Park this past spring (above).
The popular neighborhood park was named after the 60-foot tall weeping beech tree planted there in 1847. Once one of only two living landmarks in the city, the magnificent tree was the original source for all the weeping beeches in the United States.
On October 29th, a team from the New York office will also be participating in the 2016 Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
The New York Culture and Community team is always looking for ways to bring the Jack B Good spirit into fun events for staff and their families. If you’re a Jack team member who would like to suggest a cause or would like to help us find other great causes to support, please reach out.
