Employees took time away from the office to help repaint the playground equipment at Norwalk Childcare Center on Thursday afternoon.
Marketing assistant Cassie Myers said the playground was rusted, so they were helping to paint it “bright orange.” She said they worked with United Fund to make it all happen.
Despite the rain clouds looming above and the occasional raindrop, all the employees were laughing and in seemingly good spirits.
Marketing manager Katie Silcox said she thinks giving back locally is important, especially “with all the craziness in the world recently.”
Myers said they plan to boost volunteer efforts in the future.
“We want to be more involved with the community,” she said, adding ACC has never had any volunteer efforts in the past.
Going forward, the company plans to do one “working volunteer day” for employees per quarter. Employees will have the option of going to the office or to the volunteer activity.
“Our goal is to get 100-percent volunteer effort from all employees,” Myers said.
She also said the marketing team will be making separate volunteer efforts monthly.
Some specific plans for the future include donating children’s Christmas presents, a Thanksgiving food drive, a coat drive and possibly volunteering at local soup kitchens.
ACC started in 1991 with just three employees as a PC repair shop and over the years, transformed into a managed service provider.
