World Wide Technology Employees Engage in Corporate Volunteering at La Vista
November 27th, 2023
By Sr. Maxine Pohlman, SSND
La Vista Ecological Learning Center’s usual monthly workday in the Missionary Oblates Woods Nature Preserve became unusual when seven young people from World Wide Technology joined our efforts. This company grants employees one day a year to do service, and this group, wanting to do something ecological, chose La Vista.
For the hours we were together in our important pursuit of restoring health to the forest by removing invasive bush honeysuckle, we felt a wonderful sense of belonging. We belonged to a group of volunteers, for sure, but in a broader sense we felt our belonging to the larger Earth community so in need of healing.
We extend our gratitude to World Wide Technology for supporting outreach in the broader community!
